    couple months back i bought a set of 18x9 and 18x10 saleen wheels for my 98 gt....and i'm debating what size tires i should run with these. My car has h&r supersports w/ isolators, some cheap shocks and struts(i believe they were 2002 gt takeoffs), so im pretty low and the ride is kinda bumpy...u tire experts think i can run 285/35/18s in the back without having to roll my fenders, and should i run 245s or 255s up front????? i really wanna put em on already so i can take some pics....and help would be appreciated

    you should be able to run those 285's in the back without having to roll the fends, and the 255's should be fine in the front. How low has it been put to the ground exaclty?

    you should be more than fine with 285 and 265...i would venture to think you could easily go 295s in the rear.
