if you have the $ to spend then yes. u wont regret it. But when u drop ur car it will look good regardless what size ur tires are. when i put on my bullits with 245's all around it still looked pretty sweet with my drop. of course the drop looks even better with fat tires out back

What do you mean by bigger? Taller or wider?

Well just a heads up.. If you're lowering like I did and going down roughly 2" then max sidewall you'll really want is a 45. Much larger and you'll risk rubbing the inner wall of the fender/quarter under compression during harder driving.
