Do I like them? Heck yes. Are they a little big and meaty? Yes but for $100/tire still can't beat it! Have not had a chance to check for rubbing, but I think it will be fine. Still needs a lowering kit, bout an inch should do it for me. $$ Spent in total, ~$1350 incl tax, shipping, install.

Looks great! I'd definitely be interested in more pics of the whole car. From what I've read from other people on other forums, they won't rub, but I'd like to know if you get any rubbing.

Bummer. There are other 275 x 45 x 18s out there, but they are not as much of a deal... When these wear out, I'm probably going 40 series...

got some wobble with my new wheels so taking it in the Discount Tire to see if they did not balance them properly or the hub-centric ring is not working properly. If they can't get this to smooth out, going to have to bite the bullet for some Enkei PF01s..

I saw another thread where one guy could not get his Drag Wheels to work vibration free, so he had to return them.. I like the style for me, but I'm not into having my hands vibrate while driving!

That's more than likely just a balancing issue. I ended up going with the Nitto NT555s and I like them a lot, but I also would have liked an extra $200 in my pocket. lol.

Sorry to hear that about the balancing issue. Any rubbing so far though?

None that I can see or am aware of. I made some 3 point turns at the airport and no weird sounds or rub marks on the tires that I can see. Went through a couple corners spiritedly and nothing I could tell. I have been trying to avoid full lock though just in case. I need to get it on jack stands and put the wheels lock to lock and see where it is at, then press an a-arms up with a jack and see how far up I can get it to simulate as in a hard corner. Back wheels should be no prob, but I'm going to check anyways too.

I have to install my Hurst shifter, so if there is good weather and the family lets me, might get to it in the next weekend or two assuming I get the front wheel death wobble fixed.
