Ok guys nees help!!!

I have a 13 BBP and realized that although the rims are nice they are just not aggressive enough for me. To top it off I bought some Pirelli 285/35s and put them on the back. Looks good but... Wish I would have really thought it through cause i may have just thrown away a grand in those two tires. They are basically new. The 255s have about 1000 DD miles on them and the 285s have about 150 miles. Plus I have the original 255s from the back.

Anyway, here is my issue. I'm going between the AMR charcoal rims, AM GT500 style, and SVE drifts. The problem is I would like to keep my rubber and none of these models make a 9" rim for the front. It's either stretch the 255 over a 9.5" rim or have a tiny bulge over an 8.5" rim. I would also like to have the correct rim width as I may be doing a little AutoX.

Doing a drop here in the next few weeks. Since the setup is completely adjustable I can go from normal ride height to slammed. So that shouldn't be an issue.

Anyone have any ideas or recommendations? Can't seem to find a 9" rim that is affordable and looks good to me.

I wouldn't stretch them maybe someone will help that knows handling. But I'd rather bulge it. 255 on 8.5 wheel isn't bad.

I would agree but.... When I put the 285 on the 10" rim it will be dead perfect. So my fronts will have a little bulge and my rears will not. Palm->Face

Yeah. Well 285 on a 10" wheel is considered narrow. You could do a 305 and look perfect.

Lol I'm not sure what you want for auto x I know you don't want bulge but 305 wouldn't bulge. There's people that run 315 on 10" wheel and 345 on 10.5 with bulge.

I ran a 255 40 on a 9.5 avant garde wheel in the front, doesn't look too stretched and ran a 285/35 on the rear 9.5 and their wasn't much of a difference in the overall wheel height. I'm a fan of the SVE wheels to be honest and they have a 5 percent discount code somewhere.

Well I'm going to run what I have until I can't stand it anymore then I'll pull the trigger. Ok, so SVE'a it is. Now, deciding whether or not to stick with 19'a or drop down to 18's so their not so expensive.
