    Well I'm wanting to put some 315s out back. I'm unable to just flip the quads because the strange shock are to close to the quads if i flip them. I have MM LCAs if that makes a difference but i would like some help if it is ok to just ditch them.

    +1, if you had stock LCAs on the other hand, it is recommended that you keep them, although i have lowering springs and tockio shocks and
    struts, with stock LCAs, and i dont experience any "wheel hop" that supposedly should happen.

    finally ditch them. The new rims are on and sexy but there is a little bit of rim exposed on the outside that i don't know if it should be there or not.

    Yes, sumi's are crap.. I know because I have them... They do not have any rim guard, and they are very crappy with traction... But you do get what you pay for soo.. I can't complain when they cost $100 each.. But my next set of tires will be some BFG drag radials..

    That really does look weird. I have run Nitto 315's before and didn't need to flip or ditch the quad shock when doing so. My last rim/tire combo had 18x10's on the back with steamroller BFG drag radials and I flipped the quads- but they were still on the car.

    Nittos run small, you wouldnt need to flip with that brand.
