Re: Quick tire size question about my '92 Si

do you really think they will rub bad? three tires are perfect and one has about 1/2 tread. i hate to buy 4 all new tires when these are almost perfect

Re: Quick tire size question about my '92 Si

Not 100% sure, but most likely. I run 215/40/17 in the summer and I very rarely rub...and I'm lowered 2.5" as well. No harm in trying it out bro.

Re: Quick tire size question about my '92 Si

That thing is going to be a 4x4 with those rims/tires on it and NOT lowered

Personally I would wait to put them on until you:

A. Can afford lower profile tires, AND
B. Lower the car

Re: Quick tire size question about my '92 Si
