    Wow thanks so much man. 255/50/17 looks like it'll be perfect for me (since its about the same as my stock ones). I have one more question and I promise ill leave you alone after haha. Will these be a good set of tires to get for my car? http://www.nittotire.com/Tire/nt450
    Please feel free to recommend any yourself! I cant thank you enough!

    I tried to post to classifieds and I wasn't allowed to. So what do I have to do or pay to post to classifieds?

    We're talking about a 255/50/17" tire (same diameter as OEM) here that should have sidewall bulge beyond the edge of the rim. A 50 series is fairly tall sidewall and will be wider than the contact patch of tire. Due to the nature of how tires fit wheels, I cannot give you any exact dimensions, nor find any pics on Google search Go in and talk to your local tire shoppe and maybe they will have some examples or pics.

    Yeah, its a 9” wheel. But dang. I was hoping that the 265 would of been a perfect fit :/. I feel like 255 wouldn't really give me the protection I want cause I just got my license, so I'm still learning how to tackle that parallel parking. Is there anything I can do to make 265 possible or is the 255 the most I can do? Sorry if you keep repeating the same answer to me cause im really kinda confused about this sidewall thing and stuff haha

    This is a 9" wheel, as I recall... right? If so, a 245 is going to leave the rim a bit exposed and will be a better choice for a corner carver. As mentioned in your thread, it is best to stay as close to OEM tire diameter as possible, IMO. This means a 27" tire (assuming your OEM tire is a 215/65/16") is ideal and a 265 is gonna offer plenty of rim protection. Now, you will have more of this protection the higher the sidewall profile, so a 255 would probably be fine too. A 265/40/17" tire is over 1.75" smaller diameter than the 215/65/16", so I would not recommend it either.

    Hey,
    Thanks again for answering my question about the cobra rims in my thread! Sad news is that I actually decided to buy some silver bullitt wheels in the end haha. But now i have another question that I wanted to ask. I've gone to some tire places and the most they've got are 245/40r17 wheels. And usually they tell me that they don't recommend me going 265/40r17. So should I listen to them and go with the 245's? I want some tires thatll protect my rims (im kinda bad when it comes to curves) and lets me have no trouble turning. Thanks for any help that you can offer!

    That Ground Control kit is NOT a coil-over

    It offers an adjustable perch, of some type, so it does the same thing as MM Adjustable LCA's. This makes the ride height adjustable, but does not offer the benefits of true coil-over system. If you're looking to adjust the ride height and not necessarily the other benefits of a CO system, it will work fine.
