Definitely the Boyd's ( Coddington ) ! I have a set of Smoothy II's to be installed ! They are polished and ceramic clear coated ! If I buy another set , it will be PT 22's !

Good Luck,
Sonny

245/40-18 on 18x10's?

Would these look too skinny in your oppinion? I have done my research and trunk monkey stayed that a 245 is the widest you can go with proper b.s. Ive seen this done on evos and imports but idk how this would look on a domestic as im in no way trying to do the hellaflush stanced look

I would go with some wider rubber on 10" wide rims personally. If you're going with 245/45/18's they would look fine with 9 inch rims I know that. Not really sure how they would look on 10's

Let me clairfy that statement.

A 9" rim and a 245/45 or 255 tire is the widest you can go IN THE FRONT. You can go larger in the rear.

245's would look like crap on a 10" rim; go 275/40 MINIMUM! on a 10" rim and 285/40 is also acceptable. You could go as wide as 315/35/18.

You can get the 315's in Kumho Ecsta V710 or Toyo Proxes TQ.

No rubbing issues with either size.

If you haven't done so yet, just put some money into some decent shocks and make sure your suspension is solid before you get crazy with rims and tires.

I cut a coil off because my car had monster truck ride height even with the lowering springs. hopefully I will get around to developing the coilovers at some point so I can have proper suspension. In the mean time those springs work, I think I cut a coil in the rear and maybe a coil and a half in the front. If you do it, don't cut the coil bind side and make sure to use a cut off wheel. Don't use a torch, it will compromise the spring because it overheats it and changes the spring rate. You may like where your car rides with the springs the way they are. Mine didn't even look like I lowered it. That is probably because the factory springs really are from a monster truck I think.
