Default The Meaty Tire Thread

The original meaty tire thread on here is years old and 90% of the pics don't work anymore. I think this thing needs a revival. Zilvia.net has a good balance of threads between most extreme stretched tires to aggressive fitments to really wide meaty tires (like 305's). This isn't a bashing thrashing thread. The people in the aggressive fitments thread like to keep their threads going strong as should the meaty tire thread people try to keep theirs civil and going strong.

I'm starting the tires off at 245's because I know there are wagon guys that run a 245 and it looks MEATY!

Sweet car. But that wing is useless. Even on the track. I am surprised it as not cracked the trunk and fallen off. Which leads me to think this car is all looks and no track

^ to Palmer... I've posted both the subaru aggressive and mixed aggressive threads... so I like stretch too. A fat tire is a classic look and will never go away though.

When this thread was started back in 08 255 + was considered meaty and even though people are fitting wider tires now , I still consider 255 as a meaty size tire. Its just the lower end of the meaty range.

and I just purchased a set 0f 255/40/17's So I'm bias
