Yes, you read that correctly, I did acquire tires before having wheels to put them on...

But now I do!

Will have pics up this weekend.

Hey, where do you shop for rims? I'm trying to find me some 16x8+35 rims, help a guy out?

Um... I look everywhere... I found these on craigslist... Not 16x8s but I've got some 16x7.5s I could sell ya. :)

Maybe... depends on the tire width you recommend with them, if it's 215, not much reason for me to upgrade... as I run that currently... granted on a 17x7 with 215/40s...

Edit: so my current wheel want is a 5zigen FN10RCs 17x8+35 with some 225/40 at least, which will be both wider and lighter than my current rims.

Trying to find some 16's since I daily and would like a taller sidewall than I currently have.

I dunno... I ran 245/45R16s... but I don't know if there are many options for that tire size.

Did you have to mess with your spring seat with that size tire? Because that is some huge rubber.

Also: wow for that tire size prices on Tire Rack.. 102, then the rest are 200ish.... feck.

So I may want your rims, depends on how much money I have left after buying tires for my current rims, since I'll need a winter tire and all that... Now I just need to get a part time job a tire shop so I can mount/balance my stuff for free...

Dealerships are better. :) I run a 25mm spacer in the back, that's the only clearance thing I can think of...

Yeah, but mine isn't hiring... at least not for parts, not sure I want to even bother with trying to get in the service bay doing oil changes. Granted, it will still get me discounted parts/service...
