    Alright looks like I could try running a 165/45r15...

    edit: bought a set of 165/50r15, full send.

    It is, $90 per wheel and about the same per tire. I found the wheels on Amazon for $60, maybe Ill go that route.

    Did you check with the shop? A lot of shops these days won't tretch tires that extreme for liability reasons.

    Better fitment pics. I’m pretty sure it will clear on the 165/50 but there might be too much of a gap. I’ve got room to go lower though. I think I’ll be dropping the front a little more at the very least. Next update I’ll have rubber on steel.

    Il definitely recommend rolling your fender lips. Not necessarily a pull but at least a roll

    Yeah I’m considering running a 1” rake, so drop the front another inch and then not stretching the rears only the fronts and running the meatiest tire I can on the rear.

    Pics of wheels mounted. The plan is to drop the front another 1”+ until it just clears. Pretty sure I can hand pull the fenders with a little heat. I’m assuming I’ll have to cut my front bump stops off completely?

    Cut the bumpstops and remove the brackets.

    Big ass balloons until I get tired of it. I’ll see how it all looks once the front fits better.

    Funny, i'm in the oposite court. The front wouldn't look emaciated and need much of a drop if it was like the rear.

    Yeah the tire is way too short. I bought some cheap ass fender flares to play with but I may just return the two I didn’t mount and get taller tires for the front. I’m gonna mess around for a bit before I cut anything.

    Drives really nice though FYI. I always had to fight it around corners and now it just turns.

    That's because there's no sidewall to flex anymore! Lol lo_pro fx! I'd get used tires till you find the exact one you looking for.. can get away with $20-$30 a tire in some areas. Nd keep the flares, you might use them later
