    You are right, and if you have to change the fronts in the future , you would just get a different tire, and the rims you picked shold look great, can't believe they cost so little, every rim I find that I like, is more that your budget , and mine too!! HAA HA

    Here's one from another group running a 235/40-18 on the front and hotchkis suspension

    285/35-18 on the rear

    I might look into that size

    I'm wanting to put the ridler wheels you first posted on my car too. Nice wheel and a great price IMO.

    Ok, so I am looking at other tire sizes ...maybe go up a size in tire a little from my original one

    Thinking about this size for front and rear respectively..wider tire on rear

    235 / 40 - 18 and 275 / 35 - 18

    Man this is overwhelming...like trying to buy a set of jeans sight unseen and hope they fit when you put them on....I keep going back to 8" wide rims all the way around, then wanting 9.5" in the rear...then going back.

    Between all of the broken Photobucket links, poorly taken pictures, and no information about the photo's, I think I am going to back off a wheel and tire purchase for now

    Maybe revisit it again when I get the new motor in the car, I am in the middle of an engine swap right now anyways

    totally get it man it took me months to figure out my wheel tire combo, it's not a cheap purchase you want to do it right the first time.
