And (don't take this the wrong way,) don't freak out if you don't get an answer in half a hour.

Nothing makes the rest of us not want to help you more than if you wait till the last minute for help, and don't use years of answers from previous threads. Worse, your get frustrated at us for not racing to your rescue...

I am sorry, I didn't have 4 days to go through all threads, i thought that was what the help section was for!!!! I waited 2 days to get a response, all I did was bump the thread!!!! I thought it easier to ask a specific question, than a genereal answer about other cars!!! If you don't want to help me, that is fine!!! Like I said, I did not have time to search through 100 pages of threads, forgive me! What is this last minute thing, I am just now starting to look for wheels, and in no way have I made a decision, was looking for a starting point.

It all depends on the setup of your car. Did you lower it? Did you roll your fendors?
With a 1.5 front and 1.0 back drop, you might be able to get away with a 245 size tire in the rear and a 235 in the front. Agagin, if you rolled your fendors, maybe even wider. Rims for front you can go 17 to 19 with 8.5 and the back 17 to 19 with a 9.5
Hope this helps alittle...
Guys the amount of time it takes to point out "research" other threads, just tell the guy! He was being specific about HIS car not geneal. No need to flame, I only come on here once in a while and most likely will not even see your flame comments. :nana

If you want the best combination of performance, comfort, and appearance I would recomend a 17" wheel. These shouldn't rub unless you get too wide of a tire and they do a great job in filling up the fender well. They give a larger contact patch for great handling, but don't give you such a harsh ride that road trips are unbareable.

The advice about searching was indeed a good one. He didn't mean to look through pages of posts, he only meant to use the search tool at the bottom of the page. You can type in "wheels" or something like that and get all the threads started regarding that topic. You are welcome to ask any questions you like and we will do our best to answer, it's just that some questions (such as this one) have been asked a million times.

I performed a search for you, and here are the results....{CLICK HERE}
