I'd ditch the front spacers and put a 255 tire up there. Then it would be sick.


But it looks pretty good now.

I don't think it needs a 255 on the front. They came with 275s stock, and that's what I always kept on mine until I went to 18s. When I got my 18" Saleens they already had 265s on them, and I never had to replace them.

275s up front on a 17x9 with no spacer:

Your 17x9's seem to fit a 275 well Jeanyus. His tires seem a bit wide for the wheels...

With this front wheel, a 255 would sit just right:

Thanks. I had a lot of fun with that car, but I eventually couldn't resist the temptation of the Dark Side...
