For tire size, say 205/40zr17.....

205 is 205 mm tread face width
40 is aspect ratio....basically the height of the sidewall, smaller # is smaller sidewall
z (or any other letter, there are many) is speed rating, z being very close to if not the best you can get
R stands for radial belted tire
17 is rim diameter

Hope that helps you....

Now, if only I could afford some rims :(

if these rims were wider I could see you getting more interest but with 205's you don't look too intimidating:D

That tire size is for Civics man. You're looking at 225/45/17 or 235/40/17. Look up prices on those and repost it. :)

right now I have 7.5 all arround but next year I might be looking into something that can sustain 265:cool: A nice staggered set up would be perfect if you can source em out.

Flipping through a magazine yesterday I spotted a feature on the Hamann E36. Seeing those 12" wide rims in the back made mine look like rubber bands.

i'd be lying if i gave an answer to that because i do not know

How much for those 2 piece ones, are they REAL 2 piece?

And bro, i need BIG tires, like 235/40/17's if you can price me, and i need some serious name brand tires if you can get that, like FALKEN's, YOKO's, MICHELIN's
