My rims sizes are 19 x 8.5 (+15) in the front and 19 x 9.5 (+15) in the rear. I was thinking about ordering a set of Vredestein Sessanta, 255/35/19 in the front and 295/30/19 in the rear. However I'm thinking 295's might be to much tire for my rim. What do you experts think?

P/S: Sessanta's don't come in 285/30/19 and 285/35/19
275 is already decently meaty on a 9.5 already. 295 is a bit too wide for a 9.5 and is outside of the acceptable range recommended by the manufacturer. It will still work though if you really want. Really what you should do is get some spacers, 15mm all around would be a good choice, 9.5+15 isn't very aggressive

No i got whatcha meant. But the thing is if i were to go more meat out back i'd think the Z would look more like a muscle car rather than a sports car. Reminds me of that look with the small rims and fat tires low rider style.

You can achieve that meat look with a more rounded tire than actually going bigger. If Duke had a pic of his rear tires its the same size as mine but his look meatier and fatter due to the roundness of his tire.

^ This is the fat tires thread, brutha!

Why do you say it gives a muscle-car look? Hell, I absolutely need a lot of rubber on the ground to avoid fishtailing into a lightpoles.

I just got new tires installed today. Wheels are 20x9.5 and 20x11 iForged Sprint's, with Hankook Evo S1 tires, sized 275/30 up front and 295x25 in the back. I'm running a few degrees of negative camber so I guess it makes it look a little less extreme than it is, especially since I suck at taking pictures.

I know they have a thin sidewall, but does this count?

Looking to complete the C-West kit around March of 2010. I'm buying a house right now which is cutting back on my mod money for the time being.

I want to get it finished though as I'm interested in what it will look like with my wheel/tire set up, it's quite a bit different from the other Z's that have run this kit.

Glad to hear you have your priorities in order, you can always finish the car, but that rebate from the government is too good to pass up.

I think your wheels will look good with the setup, or you can always trade them if they don't.

GL with the house!!

What skinny tire thread? Stretched tires? I'm afraid I don't get to fit in that either, the widest they run in the back is about 30mm less that what I'm running in the front. Oh well, I don't need to fit in with the cool kids.
