Oh, and here is a side profile shot of the car with the 26.7" out back and 26.3" up front.



Looks good, no ABS issues, fills up the wheel wells nicely.

Damn I really miss that car sometimes...

Also Steve... a 265/40/18 might be a little big on a 9" rim, at least the BFG would. If you put a Sumi or Nitto up front and then the BFG out back it'd look a lot better. That is if you don't mind mixing brands. Those of us who are OCD... lol.

Looking at the Sumi HTRZ3 tires... they might even be a little bulgy on a 9" rim. Although at $125 per tire at tirerack for 265/40/18 and fitting perfect on a 9.5" wide rim...

Yeah that car was really nice and I assume it still is as you said an enthusiast bought it, which is awesome to know its in good hands.

The BFGs look good on the rear, I was thinking of using the Sumi HTR IIIs on the fronts like you mentioned, on the 9" wide wheel. Im ok with mixing if the tread appears to be similar or doesnt look totally different and the HTRs look a little tread wise like the Comps, different of course but not stand out different. Side walls should look ok together too. I have a mix match on my 96 too now, a Kuhmo on the front 245/45 17 and a Nexen on the rear 275/40 17 on a 10" wide wheel. They actually have varying treads and its low enough where it doesnt stand out too much at all so Im ok with that. I really like the BFGs. I guess I could go with a 245 wide BFG in the front too on the 9". I like the fact of having the little taller tire with a lowered car for wheel gap and also to give just a little more clearance but appear to be lowered still, even if it isnt much or like 1/2". Maybe I should stick with the 275 35 18s in front and the 285 35 18s in back like almost every company sells for their 18" wheel and tire sets. Im gonna measure the 275 40 17s on the back of my 96 on the 10" rears and see what they come out as, I beleive their the same width as the Sumi HTRs so in theory being the same width they should fit like they do on my 96 if I went with the 275 40s on the rear instead of the BFG Comps. Too many options. But yes I will not be putting the BFGs on the front, dont want it too wide for the wheel or too bulging looling.

A 245 BFG would be either flush or just slightly stretched on a 9" rim. I tried 235 BFGs on a 9" rim and it was too narrow... but still fit. I'd say a 255 would be a better fit on a 9" rim with a BFG. I will say that if you don't mind going 8" up front then you can run the 235/45/18 on the front which is what that is on the blue car.



8" fronts actually are much better on the 94-98 fenders, they don't lip out like 9" rims do. They would tuck a little on a 99-04 but not bad, I mean stock is 8".

TBTH, for the Steeda I think I've finally figured out my wheel/tire combo thanks to threads like this one and Soccer's. SVE Y2K replicas with a 265/40/18 on it. It has 285/35/18 Nittos on it now which are 25.9" tall with no rubbing issues so .4" taller and a touch narrower should have no issues whatsoever.

Yeah I hear ya on the 9" wide on the fronts of the 94-98, I went with a 9" on mine not knowing or thinking about it, does lip out a little but doesnt bother me too bad, I would have went with the 8" if I had known but oh well.

I already have the 18x9s coming for the front of the 03 so they will fit better and its too late anyway, haha. Im gonna look into a 265 40 18 for the front in a Sumi HTRZIII, and probably the BFG Comps in rear with a 275 40 18. Be a little more money than going all Sumi but only around $80-100 more. It will be better than having the tire too narrow on the wheel. AM says the HTRZ III tire is 11.5" wide and fits a 10" wheel, so Ill double check all that before I do anything.

Check out tirerack for actual specs on the widths.


I don't see HTRZ3 tires in 275/40/18 there but I do see the HTRZ2s. Says section is 10.9" and tread is 9.9" for a 275/40/18.


For the BFG Comp 2 you get the same section width of 10.9" but damn near an inch wider on the tread at 10.7" so you get more grip and also don't get that stretched look.


Just remember also that the rim itself for a 9" rim (example) is bigger than 9" wide from outer lip to outer lip. They measure rim width from inner lip to inner lip so you need a section width of about 3/4-1" more than the rim width to be good and then the tread should be pretty close to the section width as well.

Well the fronts came in the correct color, the rears will be here on Wed. Now it's time to order some tires for them, probably order some stuff this weekend since Friday is "BONUS" day!! Hopefully I can still hop on the Koni STR.T sale and at least get the struts ordered on Friday. Can't beat the prices on them right now.

Oh nice looks like you will be G2G with those rims. They do look good.


Tirerack is having some closeouts right now... I think those BFG Comp 2s are still $184 and then probably bumped to $200 with shipping. Bleh. But it is what it is. Wish they were the same price they were in 2014. I got 18" staggered rims, the BFGs on all 4 corners from Tirerack and local install for $1100 right on the nose.

Yeah they look really good, havent noticed any blems or imperfections on my first inspection of them. I already like them better than the matte black ones that were sent wrong. Ive been checking Tirerack, I will start checking local places too since the funds will be in place soon too. Still leaning towards the Sumi 265 40 18 in the front, and a 275 40 18 BFG in the rear since their about a full inch wider than any 275s Ive seen so far. Just wish they were about $50 bucks cheaper per tire, lol. But overall from what Ive priced its not the most expensive option. I keep going back to AM and looking at doing the Sumi 275 35s, and 285 35s and their free shipping makes up a lot of money really vs companies like Tirerack etc

Personally I don't like the 275/285 thing they do. Looks wonky. For Sumis its right flush at the rear and bulging up front a little. Kind of opposite of how it should look. A 265 Sumi up front and a BFG 275 out back would look good tho since the BFG 275 winds up being a 295 really.

I don't think I have a pic of it handy but when I swapped out my Nitto 315s for my BFG 275s the BFGs were literally just a hair narrower. Really illustrates how narrow Nittos run and how big this particular BFG runs.

You should see if Alex can give you some store credit for your time/mileage driving to UPS to ship them back...

Possibly. I sent him a PM a while ago explaining the situation and asking for insight or help with the 3rd order. I called and got the docs to ship these back again, they are totally confused on the phone. They keep saying the model number from the box is for silver, yet it clearly says matte black. The model # must be wrong on the boxes or something and they pull orders from the model # and dont look at the color description. Of course too now the silver ones they say are out of stock, but they say in stock on the website. But if the boxes are wrong their inventory qtys are probably wrong. This is why the first time I called to reorder they said they had a couple calls already on these same wheels that were shipped in the wrong color.

I do not feel real confident coming away from the conversation I just had with them on the phone that these will be right. And they called me when the 2nd shipment was going out to say they had checked it and it was the correct color. Obviously they didnt check it. The price was too good to be true!

Well can they send you the right size in the other 2 wheels in Matte Black then? I mean I dunno. Would suck if they just refunded you the $$$ because that sale was ridiculous.

Yeah if I end up not being able to get the silver ones then I would opt for the black ones and use those if I had to.

You know... if they can't make this right for whatever reason. I bet you might be able to work something out where they either refund the full amount or pay for powdercoating. If you are a big enough pain in the *** anyway lol.

So much for them taking care of it. Im getting screwed it turns out. The rep earlier that set up what would be the 3rd order was going to send me black wheels again!!! I called back a little bit ago to see what was going on with the stock on the silver 18x10s cause they said out of stock, then in stock an hour later and they told me they dont have any of them, just the black 18x10 in black. They wont be selling them anymore either. But seriously each one Ive talked to didnt seem to know what they were talking about and seemed unsure, so who knows. This is stupid. If they would have shipped my order correctly in the first place I would have got what I ordered. This isn't the first time Ive got the wrong thing from them, but the first time their not going to take care of it in any way. It would be fine if I had to wait or whatever but their just un willing to do anything, or even check the stock of 18x10s they have that are labeled with the silver model number but have black inside the box to see if its possible there are some that are actually silver. I know Im a ranting irrational customer right now, and I know how big companies work and how communication can be terrible. But, where I work with one off situations like this we do whatever we can to fix things. Its not about what I spent, its about what I'm not going to spend there now. I was planning on spending over $2k there in the next 2 weeks, but I won't now for sure. And all the thousands Ive spent there in the last few years.

And now they sent me another email saying their back in stock, this is ludicrous. Who has time to deal with this? Spent my whole day off on and off the phone with them. Being on hold, waiting for them to check, check on what I dont know since they dont know. Lol, yes the rant is continuing.

No sent him a message hours ago. I dont think there is anything he can do from what these people are telling me. Thanks though. Ill probably just give up on it, get my money back, and order my struts, shocks, springs, CC plates, mid pipe, and tuner from another vendor this weekend (getting my bonus check deposited on Friday).

Thanks, I hope so! We will see. Talked to another rep and they told me that these wheels will come back in stock at some point. I like them. I suppose I can go with Saleens in black, silver, or charcoal but its just not the same and Rovos are out of the price range for me thats why I ordered the MMDs

I'd still get in touch with Alex and see if there is anything he can do. I've seen him fix issues before when the phone reps basically said to go pound sand.


As far as another vendor... You can get a 6% discount code for LRS if you are a Corral forum member. If not then Summit or Jegs. I have never ever had an issue with Jegs and the one time I had a problem with Summit (actually FedEx shipping a Summit order) they overnighted me the part that got lost no questions asked and I had it 10:30 the next morning on my doorstep. IMO, this is the policy AM should have for order issues where it is their fault.

As far as another vendor... You can get a 6% discount code for LRS if you are a Corral forum member. If not then Summit or Jegs. I have never ever had an issue with Jegs and the one time I had a problem with Summit (actually FedEx shipping a Summit order) they overnighted me the part that got lost no questions asked and I had it 10:30 the next morning on my doorstep. IMO, this is the policy AM should have for order issues where it is their fault.
I beleive so. They offered me a "deal" on another wheel. But then listed iff all the wheels that couldnt be in this deal. None of which I remotely want either. 5 out of 6 reps now, have said the wheel I ordered they dont have will be back in stock at some point, 1 said they discontinued them. Who knows.

Wow man. I'm really feeling for ya. From what you've said it sounds like you're getting the absolute largest end of the shaft right now.

I would contact AM and ask to speak directly with a customer service supervisor or someone above the typical sales rep position. They should be able to view the entire paper trail from this order as well as the communication records associated with the order number.
I would be very blunt in reminding that individual first and foremost that they made an error when processing the order. They are at fault, and that if the order was processed correctly these conversations would not even be warranted.

Obviously we are all human, and mistakes are made, but appropriately rectifying a problem created internally is the biggest step a retail vendor can take to continue and better customer relations imo.

A properly trained and instinctive supervisor will realize this and go beyond to make things right.

If they don't, or not to your level of satisfaction (which has to be realistic btw), then return the wheels, get your money back and take your business elsewhere.

Just my 0.02...

Well, I may have to eat crow but that is fine with me at this point. Alex and another customer service rep I emailed yesterday were able to get in touch with the warehouse (an actual person!) And have them go through the boxes of the MMD 18x10 wheels. They were able to find them in the silver! They both confirmed for me that the boxes were opened and the color is correct. The issue was the label on the boxes being wrong like I said before. The phone reps just didnt have the means or know how to accomplish this or had limited info on the issue. The one told me they didnt have any silver or black at all may have been given incorrect info seeing how this was a pretty good sized "glitch" for them, this rep was correct that these wheels have been discontinued for AM. They still have some of the silvers left apparently. Im grateful that Alex was able to take this issue and have it resolved quickly. Great service like what Alex is able to provide is priceless to me. He has definitely saved a customer. Without him I never would have been able to get this figured out and would have been SOL. If anything I want to thank AM for hiring an outstanding associate like Alex.

Anyway I will have my fingers crossed, their supposed to ship in Monday. Just wanted to update what the status was on this.
