    soon I'm going to be at the point where the rubber is going meet the road. Existing wheels and tires are N/G. My sizing research is getting nowhere fast.

    This the undetailed effect I'm going for w/o compromising steering or rubbing.

    - rear=> Wheels 16's maybe 17's x ? to support med. profile FATTEST street tire that will fit. In other words more rubber than wheel.

    - front=> tryin for that raked look so I could drop down on the wheel dia. and a tire size that wont look odd compared to the rear w/o jagg'in w/ the handling.

    Also I'm buying new springs so should I get a drop size? if so how much!

    I know this is vague but any advise or pics would be appreciated. thanks

    Man, there are so many tire/rim choices...can you narrow your request down a bit more? Also, what looks like a tall sidewall to me may be totally different from what you had in mind.
