After numerous issues with getting the right bolts (the bolts I got were too long and kept on hitting the rear rotor), here are the pix:

Stern ST-1 (19x8.5/19x9.5) with 235/35/19 Toyo T1-R fronts and 265/30/19 Toyo T1-S rears





Front (new style) vs. Rear (stock)




Hideous wheel gap:


Time for some H&R springs! What do you think guys?

[8D]Nice wheels! I like that deep dish, big lip look. I think low profile tires look great. Good job!
All you need are sports lowering springs I.E H&r

Right. I think I'm having rubbing issues in the front when I turn all the way to one side. Maybe getting lowering springs will fix it?

Also should I be driving nice and non-aggressive to break in my tires nicely?

If you rub w/o lowering, lowering probably will not help. You definately need to lower that baby, it looks like a 4x4 [:D][:D][:D] Otherwise they look pretty good, better than stock.

Drive it like you stole it, it doesn't matter.
