Need Help!!

I am trying to decide what size wheels I wil need on my bird. I have just finished putting in a rear quarter panel, and I am putting on a set of xenon ground effects. I want to lower the car about 1.5inches and put the 17 x 9 cobra R rims on it. I need to know what size tires will clear?? I did not know if the ground effects being on will make a difference in the clearance also. I am no good at figuring this stuff out any info will be appreciated. Thanks Kevin

There are many options...BUT..Since you ar lowering the car here are what I have seen ran with most success.

245-45-17's All the way around "Nobody has ever reported problems to my knowledge"

255-45-17's I run these all the way around myself with no problems although some have reported problems with rub in front.

245-45-17's Front "Already Mentioned"
275-40-17's Rear "This looks great and works OK, but leaves you without the option to rotate your tires obviously.

Enjoy the new look...
