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.
Here is what it should look like.
Did you check with the shop? A lot of shops these days won't tretch tires that extreme for liability reasons.
Les Schwab is off the table but yeah I got a place down the street that don't give a fuck.
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.
Getting a little close there to curb rashing your brand new wheel!
Still needs to be lowered in the front.
Guna run those balloons out back or they getting smaller tires too?
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
