    New wheels and tires mounted.

    I know, I know. . .everyone said you can't fit 345's on a gen.1, so I went and did it.
    The wheels are Motion Wheels, 20x12+51 & 20x8.5+37
    The tires are Toyo T1R's, 345/25ZR20 & 255/30ZR20

    Toyo runs a little narrow for their rated measurements, so they're probably closer to 335 & 245. They aren't expensive tires, but Toyo has surprised be in the past, and when I put my desired sizes into TR's website, there were only two matching options; these and some Pirellis. Having had my fill of Pirellis, I decided to give these a shot at nearly $700 less.

    There is no rubbing at all following my spirited driving test this evening, and I love the look of these wheels on my multi-grey car. What do you think?

    I think it looks fantastic! I Love that meaty look . Do you have a shot of the rear?

    I was curious if I could fit a 335, now I know a 345 can fit. Thank you sir .

    Love the look. They really suit the colour scheme. Let us know how you get on with the T1R's as they have a poor rep here in the UK.

    I like these wheels better than the last set you had.

    335, yes, but a 345 will depend on the actual tire as tire sizing varies greatly between manufacturers and even models within the same brand. Also, the offset of the wheels is critical. On the rear, when selecting a wider wheel, don't go with a more negative offset. Stay between 54 and 50 when cramming meats in the back. As for more pics, I'll try to get it cleaned up and snap a few outside from various angles this weekend.

    I shall. As I mentioned, I've been pleasantly surprised by Toyo in the past, but they weren't this performance category. $700 is a significant savings, so we'll see how they do.

    Thanks! Hopefully, I'll stick with this set.

    Did anyone notice the Northern Tool jack? I picked it up for two Franklins because it already has the rubber pad (no additional puck needed) and fits under the vehicle. It's really quite nice for the price but like the Toyos, we'll see how long they last.

    You should see them in person. I can't believe I stumbled upon something so perfect for me for half price!
