Re: WHEELS/TYRES 17

when i bought mine i had 215 40's on it and when i lowered it, it was fine only extreme cornering made it rub, wen they had had enough i got some 205 45. i had to put the suspenstion back to standard because of rubbing on the rear. but it stil rubs on the rears only on hard cornering.its amazing wot a small difference in the wall size makes!!
