    When I went witrh my cobra rims they came with 245/45/17's and I had a sim look as you did. However when I lowered it 1.5 inches and went with a slightly taller tire 255/50/17 the looked wicked. Good luck and cant wait to see the lowered version (go for S/T springs)

    Alex, those wheels look good on the car, but I'd suggest being careful with those small tires on the front. Make sure you have lots of air pressure in them, because that size will be rated for a maximum of about 1250 lbs. at max. inflation pressure, compared to a load rating of around 1600 lbs. at max. inflation for the stock 225-60-16 SC size. So you'll probably want to have at least 36 to 38 psi in them, the rear tires should be not too bad, they're rated for about 1430 lbs. I'd suggest keeping an eye out for a pair of matching 245-40-18 tires for the front ... the rolling diameter will be almost identical to your rear 285-30s, and you'll pick up 100 lbs. in load capacity. The front tires you have now are really intended for a much lighter car.



    cheers

    Are you driving a Tbird, or a space shuttle? And whats with the yellow. Looks like a rice mobile on the inside. Should have left it the stock color. Oh well you gotta drive it, not me.

    I think you've seen 2 Fast 2 Furious a few too many times.

    Did I read that right that you have 3.73's in your 5-speed? How can you even launch that thing? I have 3.27's and my car will smoke them off from a roll in 1st gear and sometimes it breaks them loose in 2nd gear from a 20-25 mph roll.
