      Doesn't matter lol. what matters is what tires are you getting? If they don't have GINORMOUS sidewall/shoulder width like Goodyears do then 215/45 rear, 205/45 front. If you have more than a 12/13mm up front and are either at 23" or less than you can get away with a 205/40

      Looking at your previous posts however you're definitely not ready for sub 23" life though lol, so just go 215/45 square with 512's or 612's. Discount Tire Direct is your friend

      Well I have been driving at 24" for around 3 months now and sick of the height. I am thinking I'll be at or below 23" then I should be happy with it. spacers are 10mm in the front, none in the rear right now, but will be going for 20mm I'd say. I was thinking Falken 512's. I guess I'll just go with the 215/45 and 205/45. Thanks!

      with the 205's up front of course

      and be ready for serious rubbing in the rear with joining the 20mm in the rear club
      but I can tell you right now you're going to be hating having only 10mm up front once you're that low as it becomes more apparent that it's not thick enough at those heights (trust me I'm having that problem with 12mm lol) so I'd recommend 13.5mm or 14 if you can find it.

      Maybe a 15 in the rear would be better? These are just going to be my set up for right now. Hopefully by the end of summer I'll get some Miro 111's or some Rotiform BLQ's. I'll rub, but at least I'll be cool

      I got one Arietta ordered, no more bent wheel making me bounce down the road...

      edit: as the bent one holds air, I think I will make it my spare
