    Finally got the new tires and rims on... GT3's with BFGoodrich G-Force Profilers 205/50/16 :)


    Well, I went out shooting today, and got some good ones so I don't have to use the, as Eric said, stunna pic to hide the shitty quality...enjoy

    Isn't 205/50R16 a little bit tall for that car? Looks good anyways, its always nice to still have the little rubber nipple things on a set of tires, makes me all warm and fuzzy inside.

    Yes it is, I should have gone 45, or 40, but eh, whatever. I had to roll the fenders so they wouldn't rub, pain in the ass.

    how do you roll the fenders and still keep the fender liner? ive always wondered that. also how exactly do you roll them? ive hear of people using a baseball bat but i cant fit a baseball bat inbetween my wheel and fender i have like a 1 finger gap, lol.

    roll it in from the front or back y0. the tire will displace whatever the fenders don't roll.

    Putting it on a lift would probably be the easiest way, but you could to it with the car on jack stands if you dont pull too hard...just take the wheels off when you do it.
