These look great! I am tempted to run a square set of the fronts (19x9) with 245's all around.

Do it, the concavity of the fronts is more than alufelgen rear wheels of 9'5 .

That would be cool.... with neg camber, Dinan gets 265's on their 9" fronts.

I am not sure what offsets they use, but these look very agressive.

It would be quite something to get 265 all square on this car...

Sometimes I have 6 girls in the car about 120 pound average for each, would it rub?
I can say for sure, without the 6 girls, you won't experience rubbing.

I am not sure if I am digging the stretch of 235 on 9 inch wheel and 265 on 10 inch wheel. Its not bad with Conti sport contacts but afraid ps2's will be worse. Should i go ahead and try 245 front and 275 rear? Please comment, I am making this decision tomorrow.

Thanks, I am like torn and not sure what to do about the tire issue. When I tried to balance these bad boys i had tread wobble, I know for fact my wheels are true. Tomorrow i will meet with a manager of the tire store and try to have him take these back. I am hoping to get Michelin PS2's but not sure either same size or 245 front and 275 rear. I would hate to have a stretched look of a tire if I don't have to.

I think you'll be fine with 245 and 275. Worst case, you'll have to roll the fenders in the back just a little.

Is it just me or are the rims like 15mm too wide for the fenders ? or is the pics... are the rims INSIDE the fenders with these rims?

they certainly look nice.

How does the car handle with them? Your track should be widened - shouldn't it?

DOes it handle better? have better feel?

Update...

I have made the switch! went from piss of crap (literally, don't buy them ever!) Conti Sport Contact 3's 235 35 19, 265 3019 to Michelin PS2 245 35 19, 275 30 19. All I can Say is wow! No rubbing without fender roll with 2 people and 4 tires in the car. I love the new look and new size of the tire, handling is increased dramatically with Michelins and wider tires. With the contis I had a stretch I didn't like and felt unsettled and floaty, that no more!
I wish I could post up pictures but its dark and photo bucket is still down, I hope it works tomorrow so I will update!

Nice! I guess I didn't need to roll my fenders but I'm dropped pretty low so we'll see...

Looking forward to the photos.

Glad your liking your new PS2s. And nice to hear you didn't even have to roll the fenders. Looks like I know what tires I'm getting on my ZCPs now.

I am on performance suspension with sport OEM springs and I can barely get the finger in where the tire and fender gap is, it seems like 275 tire is higher?

I was told that I might rub. I want to prevent "the rub" as much as possible so I got an appointment to get rear fenders rolled professionally just to be on the safe side. I love the look and its hard to make me happy like this but I feel like I struck gold. This setup doesnt just look good but the car turns in like crazy unlike unsettled piece of crap Contis I had. Maybe tire sizes make such a difference, who knows.

Hopefully my photobucket account is all fixed by tomorrow. I will roll fenders, wash the car, then take some pictures.

Not sure about this... I think it sticks out a fraction too much - they look too big for the car - IMHO.

If they work, well, that is great. Sounds good on the handling.
