Finally got a set of 18s. AM 18x9/10 deep set...
They came off an 07 so the rear needed 22mm spacers and the tires all the way around are too big (I got them super cheap) But now Ive got 2-285/35ZR18 Pirelli P-zero rossos for the rear and 2-255/35zr18 Falkens for the front, on the way. Hoping the Pirellis are sticky enough. Has anyone on here run the P Zero Rosso and can tell me what they think?...


Should look completely different and much better with the smaller tires...

I'm assuming by "too big" you're referring to the sidewall because they don't look too wide. The new wheels look good though, I'm a big fan of the dish all around.

Car looks great man, I don't think the tires are too tall at all.

Thanks, and yea...too tall for my stance. 255/45s and 275/40s. They feel really heavy in the steering wheel and the clutch doesn't seem to like them with stock gears either. My girlfriend needs new tires on the 05 anyway so they'll be perfect for that.

Thank ya... They look shorter in pics. Prob the shadow effects. I think I like the terminators better right now. Lol. They just aren't in the best shape. Keeping them for drag radials this summer and all seasons in the winter. The 18" deeps are going to be too heavy either way these suckers are very light for a 17.

Its the Zinc yellow. Pretty much like the old canary yellow hot rods. Almost matches perfectly with my buddys 32 ford coupe...
Im more of a Screaming Yellow fan, but its definitely grown on me in the last few months.

Yea, itll look way better. Im down to a coil and a half on all 4 with no isos.

The chrome ones were alright, but i wanted the black center for the color combo, these new ones are all deep dish, and ive been wanting 18s for the street forever. Only other wheel id rather have on it now would be black 18" Saleens. Maybe one day... but im happy with it now.
