advice on rims
want to put rims on my car, right now i just have the stock wheel/hubs on they are 15's with big tires, i think they are 55 series. The car is already low enough for my taste, and i plan on putting a body kit on as well

17's or 18's?

i dont really know much about rims and tires

any advice?

If you're putting on a bodykit, then 18's would be best. For tires a 225/35/18 would be nice.

35 will give a rougher ride, while 40 will be a bit smoother...Just take your pic...I prefer 40 grin

Yeah, go with a 40 series tire. They're less expensive & they perform better. Only go with a 35 if you really want the low profile.

Knowing the path and choosing the path are two different things.

It's a little rougher, but it's not that bad. The first couple of weeks are the roughest 'cuz the tires gotta break in.

But I'm gonna go with a 225/40/18 'cuz that's the only size that the Yokohama's AVS Sport comes in.
