235s for now.

But they're Star Specs. For some reason I feel like I might have some fitment problems with anything bigger. I also got them used so I should burn through them pretty quick. Then I can go bigger from there. I'll be shooting for 255 ZIIs.

I have blond hair and blue eyes and it never got me out of anything. Now if I had "t&a", that's a different story. Course I don't.. only chicks get away with that stuff.

Star Specs run big but a 245 fits easy!

I was in 17x8 +43 rocking 245/40 star specs and it would rub over dips in the road and when I would take turns hard and I'm only lowered on h&r springs with konis

ZIIs run wide too. Everything I consider runs wide. If it doesn't run wide, I'm probably not interested.

Ugh, progressive springs... Did you do any fender work? Camber?

Hmmm... 330/335 with a 0.6" drop. Although the Konis probably bring you down a little lower.

But the wheel width isn't as important as the tire width. The tire is going to rub. Not the wheel.


All of my research tells me that a 255 should fit. My gut says it won't.

Potenzas are great and just roll with camber adjustments and a 255 will fit but I think it's over kill for our cars!

Except RE-11s are expensive.

But looking now, there's a RE-11A... Much less expensive. But also a harder compound.

Looking at the specs... ZIIs are still wider by 0.4".

I know this much tire is probably overkill. But I want it. I've been scrolling through the Meaty Tire thread too much.

Ah. All my fenders are rolled and the fronts are pulled a bit. My camber is at -1.4* (Max). 255 really shouldn't be a problem.

Some posted a bugeye with 17x9 RPF1's on 235/40 (I think Feds or Specs/both run wide anyways) and it looked perfect, IMO.

Would I be safe on stock studs with a 5mm spacer? If so can someone recommend some?

I would like to know that as well. Apparently the best 5mm spacer for our cars comes in a 2 pack from H&R with longer studs. Bit pricy but worth it for the safety and piece if mind alone.

Any of you guys interested in a custom license plate relocation kit? I picked up a Grimmspeed one and won't need my current one anymore. Does the exact same as the Grimmspeed I just want to support a local company.
