Hey Guys. Its about that time when a new set of (rear) tires are neccesary. I had bad ball joints that I fixed a while ago, but It ended up eating up the inner most part of my tires facing the inside of the car. I already had my mind set between Michellin PS2's or Yokohama Advan's however I need to complete another very important step. Right now Im running 235/45/17's all around on style 5 wheels and Sceptor tires. I want something more aggressive looking and ultimately wider in the rear. I was thinking about 255/45/17's , but I didnt know if these would look " beefy" enough. What do you think is the widest I can go in the rear without rubbing or rolling fenders or any work at all? thanks
