Go to google and look up tire size calculator. Find two size tires that will be as close to the same height as possible.

I went 245/40/18 front and 305/45/18 rear and it looks awesome. Rear looks thick but not overdone. Front looks sinister and filled out.

So I can fit those on the back without having to lift the car and buy bigger wheels

Did you use any spacers? Your wheels are like perfectly flush.

Realistically?

This side or the other of maybe 25k miles if you use them how they're supposed to on occasion but stay nice to them more.

I had BFGoodrich GeForce 295/35/18 and they were pretty good. Idk how long they last though. I had them on for maybe 30k miles and swapped to Nittos. The GeForces still had tread.

Yea if your stock height then I think 295/35/18 is your best option. It fills out your wheel well but still gives you the option of going lower. A 295/45 would be too much IMO

I'm lowered about 1.7-2" in rear and have 305/45/18s and have no problems. I did roll my quarters in case.. But I think I would've been okay either way.

The F1s are not exactly the greatest tire in the world. If you need cheap rubber they're ok though.

For both tires? If that's the case then get them new. If you are talking per tire you are getting ripped off buying them new for $230 each. Discount Tire has them at $173 shipped each and Tirerack is $160 each before shipping.

They are a good tire they just suck in weather (in my experience) and don't hook up as well as some other street tires out there. You also used to be able to get them from multiple places for like $130 new before shipping but that seems to be going up. I think because they updated them to a "version 2" or something...

They really shouldn't unless you are very lowered. You'd have to pull a tire off and see if you can see any rub marks and go from there. If its on metal you could shred your tire up, if its the splash guard then not really too much you can do except raise it up in the back a little or you might have to try a 275/40/18 or a 285/35/18.
