PostSubject: Wheel change   Sat Aug 22, 2009 4:11 pm

I am thinking about selling my new tires and wheels, and go for the big and little look. Kind of like a pro street, but more civilized.
Like a 295/60/15s out back, and 27/4.5/15 up front.

This is just talk. Not in the cards yet, but just something I have been thinking about.

What sized front tires??? 255-60's match nicely to the 295/50's.

I miss my Rallyes EVERY DAY!

Do 295/60's even exist? That's a 29inch truck tire man. That would look not so good.

If you want big & little do 275/60/15 rear - 255/60 front.

295/50 all the way around will work too. Or 295/50 rear and 255/60 front like Crovo suggested. That's what I should have done.

Not that kind of big and little
This kind of big and little.

I hate to be the one to say it, but you don't have enough car to run wheels like that. Sad

I barely have enough car to run the paint I have. Wink

I'm sure it would look the nuts
So if your gonna park it & just LOOK at it that'll work
If your only going to go straight that'll work
But if your going to drive it & want it to handle....IMO not so much
