Hi guys, I couldn’t find much info from using the search tool. What size tire would you use for a 12” wide rear? And a 9.5” front?
I do like the oem look, where the front 245’s are flush with the rim, and the rear 285’s have that ever so slight ‘stretched’ look.

Forged 2 piece 21’s, below is what I have in mind:

Front: 9.5” 255/30/21
Rear: 12” 315/30/21

Thoughts?

Looks like the sizes you have in mind will work. I have a 255/30 21 on the front of my 9.5 wheel. But I have 335/25 22 on the back of my 14 inch wide 22. All fits with no issues.

I didn’t realize 335’s would work. I thought 315 was the widest. Nice to know. Do you have pics? Thanks.

No rubbing. Im dropped 4 turns on all 4 corners on the factory coil overs that were on the 08s and 09s. The passenger front wheel rubbed slightly on full locked turn when i 1st put them one, but that was because my camber on my alignment was off when I first lowered it. But that was corrected with a fresh alignment, all perfect. Backs never rubbed, driver front never rubbed also.

What do you mean dropped 4 turns? Not familiar with that lingo.

The struts are threaded on coil overs and height is adjusted by turning the nut. I turned the nut 4 full rotations to lower it. If I want to go back tk stock height, I will turn it back the opposite direction 4 full turns
