    I've been a member for awhile now, but this is my first actual post. I've been searching around but haven't found quite what I was looking for. I'm about to change the wheel/tire setup on my 95 GT and wanted to see some pics of similar setups if possible.

    My current wheel setup is AFS 03 Cobra reps.
    Front - 17x9 +26 with 245-45-17
    Rear - 17x10.5 +27 with 315-35-17

    I'm considering the SSR GTV01 and was wondering if someone running similar wheel setup would care to post some pics. Here is a link to the wheel http://www.ssr-wheels.com/wheels/gtv01.asp I've found pics of them on S197 cars but no SN cars yet so I'm still undecided, but I am wanting something different.

    Front - 18x8.5 +22 with 255-40-18
    Rear - 18x9.5 +22 with 285-35-18

    According to the 1010tires offset calculator the front would gain 10mm inner clearance and the outer would be retracted by 2mm. The rear would gain 11mm inner clearance and the outer would retract 1mm. I know that's not a huge difference but I'm mainly worried about how the width difference on the rear will look going from a 315 to the 285s. Any pics or insight would be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome! Hopefully someone here will be along soon with pics of what you are asking (as I do not). However, based on what you said, I don't see any issues with fitment (in fact, you are gaining some clearance all the way around) so really it will be a matter of whether you like the look. :) Those wheels look sweet too!

    You can always throw a 10mm spacer on to make up for the 10mm offset difference.
