To the 215/35 on the 9.75....

215/45 on that setup would've looked fine. 35 series? Why?

How about camber your ****ing wheels too so that you can run a 225/40 and have a safer fitting tire for a stretch? Camber doesn't eat your tires badly if your toe is fine and -3 all around is fun for cornering with the proper caster alignment

I can't believe a shop actually mounted those for him. It's dangerous.

I have xxr 527 on my bugeye. Size rim is 18x8.75.. I bought tires in the summer brand new which are 225/45/18. I didn't know I bought such big of a tire because I didn't at the time know about tire size generally. My question is, what size tire do I buy for my fitment 18x8.75 .. My bugeye is on Coilovers so I plan on lowering the front and raising the rear because I always have people in the car. I want a nice clean fitment with no camber, just for daily driving

Aren't you worried that if you take a corner too hard that you will pop the bead and the tire will literally fall off of the wheel? I couldn't drive my car with that thought in the back of my head.
Not to mention the fact that he could also kill himself or someone else in the process. I wouldn't drive on a road with those in a straight line.

Getting ready to sell my current setup and moving onto a whole new setup for next season. My XXR's have done quite well for me, no complaints here!

Hey I was curious if someone could help me out with fitment I have an 05 psm STi and want XXR 527's 18x8.75. I'm lowered on Eibach Pro-kit Springs (-1.2 front, -0.8 rear). What tire and offset should I run so that I do not have to modify the fender at all.

Tires don't have offset, your wheels do (your XXR's)

Go with a 225/40, 235/40, or 245/40 and you'll be fine. I ran 245/40's on my 18x8.75's +35 when I had them

Edit: Sorry, mis-read your post. Thought you already had the wheels, didn't realize you were still looking. My bad!
