actually i just chopped it and it looks like someone put the wrong size tires on and then tried lowering it to cover it up.. no thanks

i really liked the look of the smaller than stock 225/55/17 that i had on there... ill look for them to show up..

in the mean time, there will NOT be any pics of my car at all

jee thanks jim

nah, i dont kill links... but unless some paparazzi finds my car, you will not find any clean pics of it, im actually embarrassed to drive it...

these tires are actually quite loud, and they are bumpy as ****

however, the handling is amazing.... with no squealing...

have not tried a new 0-60 run, but im sure its a bit faster, plus the speedo is off

235/55/r17 are 27.2 inches in diameter ( I thought this was the stock size)

225/45/r17 are 26.7 inches in diameter (size you had before)


235/45/r17 are 25.3 inches in diameter (the size you have)
