2 new wheels + 4 new tires on the way!

So, many of you know... I got a wheel eaten by a pothole a while back and have been rockin' around on a 16" discount tire special. At the same time, the pothole bent my rear rim but not bad enough to have to replace it..

I have been waiting for a good time to buy replacement wheels and upgrade my tires.

I wanted to go for a little different look and fill out the rear more at the same time, so i went staggered o.0.. no real reason other than looks.

In the back, I am going with 18x8.75" xxr 530s with 235/40/18s and the front will be rocking the 18x7.5" xxr530s and 8mm spacers with 225/40/18s.

This setup should help me fill out the wheel wells a bit more without having to drop the car all while increasing my tire profile.

The setup should not have any stretch but it will be close in the back. Kumho usually has a bit wider profile than comparable tires. Either way, it would be a VERY minor stretch. I hate the stretch but knew a 245 would probably be a longshot with a 33mm offset 18x8.75"

I got the wonderful kumho 4x tires and am stoked to actually be able to feel the road and not deal with the sloppy solus 25 whateverthefuck they are anymore.

Will be posting pictures once installed!
