couple pics of the Nitto 305/35 on the car

Just put these on today. I wanted a larger tire on the rear. Not so much to go to the track. But it does open up the possibility. Oh just finished adding the smoked corners and side markers

Nitto's

Nice they fill the gap nicely,

Did you check to see if there will be any clearance isssues with the 20's?
and how much did they set you back?

Thanks for sharing

only drove a few miles after the install. Got stopped by the police for window tint (no ticket) even though his gauge showed 18%. I decided to take her home. No road noise and the ride was smooth. I will report on the traction as weather permits

That looks sweet! I have been searching hi and low for good pics of the CS 40s installed, thats how I found this forum. I was ready to pull the trigger on the Alcoa SS yesterday and was extremly bummed to find out you cant get them anymore, at least for several months. After starting my wheel search again I found the CS 40s, I think I like em better than the SS wheels anyway. My 08 is black with painted grey stripes, havent decided yet wether to go chrome or black with machined face like yours. I too was going with the Nitto 555r 305/35s for the rear but some say there too wide, I knew they would fit with the right wheel.
Do you mind telling me what size rear tire you removed from the new wheels before installing the Drag radials? Also what size are the fronts, 255's?

check the pics in the other thread. I had 285/30. The nittos are not to wide. They are somewhat taller though which some dont like. And yes the fronts are 255's

Yhea, I guess there about 1 inch taller from the research I have done. Wish someone had a 305/30 dr.

Update- I found a Toyo 305/30/20 tire avaiable, its not a dr but still offers up a 12+ section width and would keep the standard height. I may look at this closer for my selection.
