Are there wheels on the car in the second pic? In fact, is that a car or a shadow?

I'm on BC coilovers. I'll measure tonight, but I did have to raise the front from where I was with the gtc's. My tire sizes with the gtc's were 245 35 20 in front and the new fronts are 265 35 19 and they scraped easily. A quarter inch up and I'm good now, unless I hit a crazy dip.

So you were originally running 20's and now you're running 19's?

What are the widths? 9.5/10.5 or 9.5/11?

I have a 10.5 rear with a 285 on it right now... debating whether or not to keep 285 or go for 305 with my next round of tires, since these came with the wheels. Also, the fronts are 255, and I'd like to do 265's...

Ya, I downsized because I like to autox.


9.5/10.5

These are 305 rears.

My suggestion would be wait till you get the 265s before you try to drop it. Cause these are snug at this height. I'm considering buying a front camber kit and forcing a bit of camber so I can go lower again.

Yeah, that's prolly what will happen. I'm happy with the height now, since I still scrape the underside of the front bumper at crazy angled roads.

I want to get a front arm kit also but damn are they expensive compared to the rears...

I much prefer 19's to 20's on a Z anyway.
