    Please run a DECENT tire on it too, like a 245/45 and not a 205/35 like most nowadays.

    I'm a big fan of having my tires normal.

    Orange seems like a stronger color for a sports car, and green seems too child-like in my opinion. But, then again, it's all on what you want and you prefer.

    Lol part of the reason actually why I got 17x8s. Running 235/45 on 7 inches atm. Should not be a problem anymore with the wider rims and shorter sidewall and a stiffer tire.

    Stretching the tires seems a bit too risky for me.

    It depends on how much, the tires, and your driving style, as well as road conditions. I got the lips of the last wheels nice and nicked up thanks to the stretch and needing to travel on gravel (poetry) from time to time.:cry:

    That's one more reason why I don't want want too. Hawaii roads will mess up nice wheels in a heart beat. I really don't want to pay a decent amount of money for something nice to look at to nick up just by driving down the road. My wife still hasn't messed up her wheels and sue has normal tires on her rims

    I wouldn't do it on an AWD car I planned to beat on/go fast with, anyway. It's for us slow, old folks and kids in skinny jeans.

    Yes JNCOs are forever the best jeans I still have two of their shirts hanging on my walls. I'll say this stretch tires look good on a lot of nice cars.

    I think the only color for rims on white should be black or chrome. Anything other just looks too rice for me .
