2 Months Later BETTER THAN EVER!!!

So almost a full 2 months later and she looks better than EVER!!!!! I want to thank everyone for the help with tire setup and the advice on M-Tech.
Westmont Body Werks did a fantastic job with the body and paint work. I couldnt wait to put the wheels on so i went straight from body shop to tire shop. Here are some before and after photos.

The wheel setup is OEM Style 230 front are 8in rear are 9in. front tires are 225/35/19 and rear are 265/30/19 this is within the 1% rule for xi. I plan on putting 15mm spacers both front and rear and then the wheel setup will be complete.

To Do List:
Spacers
Drop
Black roof
Rear M-Tech
CSL Trunk

Looks nice!

Personally, I would have went with a 235/35R19 in the front to pair with the 265/30R19 rears.

This stagger is only a 0.8% difference, vs 0.4% in your 225/35R19 front - within the 1% tolerance. This would have provided a more neutral handling feel at the limit, but you may loose a bit of initial steering response.

well i actually wanted to go with 215 and 235 but i couldnt find a tire mfg that made both of those sizes. So i went with the Falken 452's 225 & 265 which has the best sidewall for my taste (looks not performance)

I can honestly say i would have regret going with smaller tires. The stretch would look so terrible on these wheels
