new tires and wheels

Well, I finally got all my wheels TTII (205) with the grey center 17x8 up front 17x9.5 out back 245/45/17 Firestone wideoval and 275/40/17. I llowered the car 2" on front and 1" on the rear....one word...Nailed it, well two words. I also added a hotckhis sway bar to the front. The car handles 10 times better, looks sweet and was worth every penny. I will post pictures in the next couple of days, but I love this car more now then ever. I am starting to run outta stuff to do to it.....hmmmm. Anyone got any early 70's Z?

Can't wait to see some pics!!! I am about to order the same thing except Street Stars from Billet Specialties, What kind of brakes are you running? and what bs did you go with. I'm a little nervous about the size some say I will have problems.

Re: new tires and wheels

I am going to put on baer brakes, but that will have to wait awhill, I just painted my calipers and cleared my drums, they look okay, but the baer swap will be done in November. Rear bs is 5.5, front is 4.75. The rears are tight, I had to bent the inner wheel weel lip inboard, but since then no trouble at all.

Re: new tires and wheels

Thats what I was afraid of my body and paint is already done,and I don't want to roll my fenders. I think I'll have to go with 255/45/17 rear and 235/45/17 front. I have speed tech uca so I might get away with 245/45/17 in any case I would still like to see pics of your ride.
