    Hey everyone, im new to the site but it looks very good, and has some sweet cars. Heres my car, Its a 98 V6, I got 2" lowering springs that i have not got installed, Im wondering what you guys would suggest for the rear tire size, as i will be buying a new set in a few days but am having difficulty finding the right size, id like something that will fill the wheel wells, and be fairly wide, i would like to get the Black bullits with the polished lip, but the $$ isnt allowing that right now, so ill have to stick with the 16" stocks, your opinions would be a great help.
    Thanks Brett

    good lookin little 6er! 17x9's all the way around with 275/40/17's would look great.

    im running the 17x9 265/40/17 up front (going to 275's when these wear out) and the 17x10.5's with 315/35/17's out back. personally, i like the staggered look the best... looks MEAN!! the problem with staggered wheels is, you cant rotate your tires.

    Thanks for the wheel ideas, I think i will get a set of 17" saleens or maybe Bullits but ill have to wait until next spring , i really like the looks of the black ones with the polished lip, ,though im not sure how theyd look on a green car.
    Thanks for the advice, and keep it coming, Brett

    Clean ride, Brett. Nice to see that nothing "desperate" has been done to the car. Reminds me off my car, except I had the 15" stock 3 spokers.
    I've got a set of C Springs due to come in today that I hope to get installed within the next few weeks - doing it myself. I'll try and get some close-up before and after pics.
    Nice to see another PG!
