FYI -
Here are a couple of web sites that are a lot of help when trying to determine the size tire and wheel offset to use.

Hi Rick, I have put on mine the XLR V wheels from Bob (standby) on this forum and they look just great:thumbs

I have Pirelli`s 245/45 19 on front and 255/40 19 on rear (just the reg. XLR V size)

here`s a picture

That looks great Hans. I love the color. I'm putting 255x45x18 front on 8.5 inch AZA Z-1 wheels and 275x40x18 rear on 9.5 inch AZA Z-1 wheels. The package should be in by early Feb.

Hans,
I was looking at 19's but, with the tire sizes I chose I would have to change the aspect ratio from a 55 to 45 up front and 55 to 40 in the rear in order to keep my rolling circumference close to correct. That could make for a stiffer ride (smaller sidewall) and the possibility of bending a rim on pot holes.

Have a nice day

I sure will Hans. I also have a set of cross drilled / slotted rotors that are going on the car when I get the new wheels.
