rofl I believe you can pick the tires and size you want...you just may have to pay a little extra then what they say in their "package" deals

I like them. I got a real low profile, I like the tread pattern and I have good traction. The only problem is that I wore the tread out real quickly, cause I bought the wheels the same week I got the car so I was having some fun. Let me see what I can do for pics for you.
I have 17x7.5 excel TZ-10s with 215/40 tires.

Ok, no critisizing...these are old pics and my car no longer looks like this, they are just the best ones I could find with a good look at the tires..

I bought my rims and tires from wheelmax.

I got kumho 711 (not 712 frown like i thought I was getting) and I think they suck. They allow me to spin way too much...I should have upgraded to package C instead of B.

Also, I found wheelmax to be an incredibly bad company. One of my rims were lost by UPS, and it took over a month and a half to receive a replacement. And that was only sent after I sat on the phone with them every day for two weeks straight for atleast an hour. Their customer service SUCKS.

wow, I'm sorry to hear. I didn't have any problems with anything. Even got my wheels 3 days before I expected them.
