What size rear tires are you guys using to stuff under those rear fenders? It looks as though you can still lower the rear a little..... I want to do the same set up as what you guys in the club are doing..

Usually 205x65, but sometimes you can fit 215x65s under there depending on the wheel you are running. One of the guys Paul Smoot runs 205x70s, Im not sure what brand but for his cars they always seem to look good. When ever Ive tried to run a tire like that It looks like Im runnig small truck tires.

The 205x70's that Paul runs are Goodyear Eagle or BF Goodrich. Those are the same size that alot of the DKP guys run in the rear but he slams his cars on them. Also, I agree, 215x65 tend to look sweet but right now Im running 26"x7 drag slicks on Fuchs, not very street practicle but boy does it look bad-ass! Skim
