I recommend Precision Tinting in Silverdale. The guy is ranked in the top 5 in the country and for a CC you're looking at about $250. I have some referral cards that save you a bit off that too. He's done quite a few of my cars and always does a spectacular job. I also had him do the tail lights and my clear bra this time around. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

Thanks! took me a minute to figure out what wheel i wanted and of course, i had to imagine whether it would look good or not since no one else was rocking CK's...i think i did alright
I was told that the proper size should be 245/30 and i just went 255/30 to have a little more cushion like you said...also did not want to stretch a 235 on a 8.5" wide wheel...not that is not possible just i don't like when the tire is too stretched.
^ no stretching at all with a 235/30 on a 8.5. You just don't get the super boxy shoulder like on a 255.

What would have been the right/proper size tires to put on going from the 17" to 20"?
Also i've noticed some tires run smaller than others even if they are same size..
I tried 245/30/20 in my case the Falkens FK-452 that i have on and did not like how they fit so i decided to go a little wider and add a little more cushion.
really the width will depend a lot on rim width, you went to an 8.5 which if I remember right can run a 225-255 comfortably. Since the 17 has a 45 series tire you would subtract 5 for every inch you go up in size (unless you are going with a much wider wheel/tire) so the 30 is correct. Doing what you did for more cushion makes since. It is with in the 3% difference in overall diameter range so you are fine.
It's all just simple math. 255/30/20 the "30" is what's called the aspect ratio... that is, the ratio of sidewall height when compared to tread width. So that means the height of the sidewall is 30% of 255mm... which rounds up to 77mm. And as Roy mentioned, it's the general rule to decrease 5% every time you increase your wheel diameter 1".
However... there are all sorts of way's people achieve a proper rolling diameter with tire/wheel sizing... it almost becomes an art... with proper tires being as attractive as a nice set of wheels
OK, I have a question... will 9" wide et35 wheels all around cause me problems? Assuming I'd need to stick with a 225 width in order to pull it off.
I'm not going to crush the car and try to tuck tire, I'm just looking to get rid of the fender gap (I have k sports sitting in the garage).
Thanks in advance!
edit: I guess I found my answer
Any other feedback would be appreciated though

these are 20x9.5's all around..45mm offset...fits perfectly..plan on running a 245/30/20 tire

hmm, i see what happened....started going back through everyones specs and combos and realized, i rub b/c i'm lower...not braggin, but i got my spacer sizing from other peoples combos but realized you guys are a little bit higher due to the GC kits...damn it! ha ha. btw, I WILL BE SELLING SOME 15MM SPACERS HERE NEXT WEEK. BASICALLY BRAND NEW
This is driving me crazy. There are wheels for sale in the local area here, like the ones below, but they are 19x8 with an ET45, so essentially these would need a BIG spacer to poke it out further. I'd prefer to go with a similar wheel and not deal with adjusting the wheel poke, but cannot find anything like these wheels. Any thoughts or suggestions on finding a wheel like this? These are PDW wheels, a small Australian company btw.

Just checked, yes they do but they are also 19x8 with unknown ET. How much spacing would I need to get these (the PDW wheels)puppies flush with the fender? 10mm to make take it from an ET45 to ET35?
I will also be throwing some H&R's on soon, not sure if that matters in offering advice.
ET35. I ordered my MRR HR2s from these guys great service. Make sure you get hub rings. You'll need whatever they MRR is down to a 57.1. The rears will be close to flush, my MRRs were 8.5 wide with et35 and were flush and yours at 8in wide will stick in about 1.4 of an inch. The front you'll want a 10-12mm spacer. Are you lowering on springs or coils?
it'll be springs only. These wheels are for sale new for $450 for the set, I just can't pass them up! Does $408 sound steep for a quote to install the springs from a local shop? How difficult is it to really do the springs yourself?
