Re: ooh cool...

looks like mine :)
Frank,
Your car LOOKS great!
How do you drive that thing? I think my tires are rubbing in front. I just had them put on yesterday.
What are your tire and wheel spec's?
Did you need to roll the finders, or mod any of the wheel well?
Let me know.
Thanks,
Tim

Thanks ! I don't rub.
Specs:
Lorinser LM5s
19x8.5 front and 19x9.5 rear
235/35/19 front
265/30/19 rear

The lorinsers came with spacers which brought the offset down to +35 front and +37 in the rear, if i'm not mistaken.

No fender rolling or modifications necessary.

I need to change my spring pads on the front though to maybe a 4pt since it's too low and I scrape my driveway when I'm not careful.

If you decide to lower your car, you will have to remove the front 255's and go with 235's...

Show pictures if you do it. Those wheels look awesome!

Tire Width ?

Any particular reason why you went with the same width all the way around ? You could have gone with a 9.5" in the back like Frank's CLK. I've got 10" with hardly any issues. Just curious..
