My thoughts exactly. I wonder if a wider tire would make the sidewall seem bigger. I like the look and I am sure with it lowered it will look much better

Tried doing a 315. It was rubbing. I assumed this might be a good choice with the drop.

I dig the FR's, but I agree the sidewall looks a little small. Can you post some more pictures of different angles? Really looks good

Thanks for the info, have been debating picking up a set of the 22 inch reps with vreds (305/35 R22). I think others have run a 305 width, but I figured I would be cutting it close. The tire size calculator says this combo is very close to stock measurements.

the eibach's only drop the WK2 3/4" in the front and 1.1" in the back. With those sidewalls IMHO your gonna want to go lower than that, a lot lower

Agreed. The 305/35s are almost 1.5" taller. This would fill up some gap and give u a better ride.
