Default 19" / 18" wheel and tire combo

I already have 19" vmr701 wheels.
I wanted some more traction, I decided to get matching vmr701 wheels in 18" for the rear wrapped in nitto nt05r 285/40/18

These just squeeze under the brembos on the rear.

You need to makes sure the balancing weights are close to the spokes on the inside. It's very tight, you likely wouldn't be able to double stack the balancing weights it's so close.


Not the best pics but I like the look. Now I hope these nittos hook when it warms up out

Is that a 9.5 wide +35 offset? Are you dropped? Looks good!
