You need a new tire size. 255/40 and 275/40 plus lower it about 1.5" and it will look great. I mean those 17 don't bad at all but with those 235s they look like a donut.

The new rims weighed 22.3 lb. each on my scale. Each tire weighed 24.75 lb., which makes sense because the 595's run a little wide for the indicated size. Total combined weight comes out to 47.1 lb. The previous rim/tire combo weighed roughly 65 lb. per corner rear, and 56 lb. per corner front. This gives about a 60 lb. decrease in unsprung weight, which is enormous. Further contributing to the improvement is the decrease in polar moment. To put it simply, the weight loss paired with the smaller radius makes each rim/tire a lot easier to move. I'm very happy with this combination.

As far as appearance goes, I'm waiting to do my suspension build before I get spacers, and I'll probably only add spacers to the front, to widen the track width.

Travlee do you have close up pics of your set up? I was thinking about getting the same set up as you but dunno if I should just get +15 all around.

I got +15 offset all around. the front stick out 10mm away from the fender and the rear is tucked 5mm within the fender. Ill be getting 15mm spacers for the rear to push the wheels out to match the front. If you get +23 offset on the front your wheels should stick out 2mm. You will need 7mm spacers for the rear if you going +15 offset on the rear to match the front. Which ever one you choose you will need spacers on the rear. Im not sure if thats what you are looking for.

i kinda wished i went with the +23 offset up front with +15 offset on the rear. That way i would just run a 5mm spacer on the rear and be fine with it. it would only be a 2mm difference. cause now i have to cut my studs to fit a 15mm spacer in...

do you know if i can use a c-clamp or hammer to push out the current studs? i dont have a press and dont want to remove the hub to have the studs removed. if i go that route im gonna need to get open head nuts, which i dont want to do since i just bought a set of closed end ones...

EDIT: Nevermind i just looked it up...

I picked up a set of 15mm hubcentric spacers, ARP extended studs, and open head lugs nuts. Looks alot better now. Rear fitment matches front.

Default Tire size question

I just picked up a set last week and just got the cash to get new tires. They are 18x9.5 +15 and I'm on stock suspension I'm torn as to wether I want to run 245/40 all square or 275/35. I'll roll my fenders if I need to thats nbd. Are 275s up front going to make the steering stupid heavy or make it squirrely on the highway as my daily driver?
