Pictures of 225/50/16s on Z26 wheels?

Postby SummitBalt08 » Wed Apr 13, 2011 3:54 am

I been reading alot about the best tire size to get, and i think i need pics to see what they will look like before i spend 400+ bucks on tires.

I will have the eibach/kyb setup on factory Z26 wheels.. Im still stuck on whether to go with the stock 205-55-16 or get 225-50-16s. Suggestions?? I need pics of setups please! Im getting the stock Z26 wheels recleared so they will look brand new and need agressive looking tires to compliment the suspension setup and wheels.

Here are the tires i was thinking about if i do get the 225-50's

I fear tires from China. Seen too many fenders trashed when they throw the tread.

Dude, Hancooks are not made in china. They are made in the US or Japan, atleast thats what mine say on them. Also, how often do you hear about tires coming apart and destroying fenders? The thing you have to look at is, if ANY tire blows tread off the wheel, its gonna take a fender no matter what the brand is.

Thats what i figured, any tire might do that.. I dont run older tires at all, once the sidewall starts cracking or whatever i get new ones. You never know when your on the interstate and a tire might blow.

I was pretty stuck on them hankooks anyways, I think they will look killer on the factory wheels with the kyb/eibach setup on my Z26 haha
