I like them, they turned out looking great. I'm sure in person it looks way better. I would have went with a 45 or 40. The steering must feel great tho with those 35's.

I could have gone one step up in profile height, but I was nervous about rubbing with the +25 fitment up front and aggressive tire size. There isn't a ton of info on aggressive setups, so it's all trial and error. Ultimately I still just mimicked The rear tire profile I already had 275/35 20. Once the springs are installed I'll definitely have a better proportion with tire gap, and they look amazing in person!

H&R sprangs installed. Weather is crap, but the current setup is money. Braking improved, responsiveness, overall ride quality all much improved. I will say, that a little trial and error on the install, and it was one of the tougher jobs I have done in my years.The rears are setup just like coilovers, which definitely speak to the car-like driving feel. So I had to break down all four corners which is a pita, but It was definitely worth it. I'll upgrade down the line to kws, in the mean time this will get it done. Thanks for stopping by.... not you riick, keep it moving

It really is night and day. I can't say enough how good the car feels. I absolutely love it! No tracking either. I thought I may get some from the larger contact patch, but it just feels great.

How much room do you have to the inside of the strut in the front? I have been considering going with 275's on 20x10's all around and am trying to decide on offset.

Offsets look great, tires a little too rubber band skinny for me though. Cool wheel style.

Thanks I appreciate it. I will definitely go with a 275/40 next go round. In the mean time, were managing just fine!


As for clearances to strut, I have about 1".

275 definitely looks better than I thought with the right offsets. I had always thought the stock 275s looked oddly narrow
