What size are those tires? 215x?x18?

They look kinda narrow for the rims. Do you know how wide the rims are?

I think your tires are too narrow for the 8.5" rims. This would also explain all the "rim bending" issue. The outside lips on your tires are just hanging in the air. A little pot hole and BUM!...you dent your rim.

just my $3.18

Car looks good but you gotta lower it.

new tires and lowering springs lets go chop chop!!!

its not a big investment the tire thing may effect your car long term to .

p.s i'm not a big fan of lowering the car just get the side skirts and bumpers painted instead.

i've got 225 rubber on my 8.0" wide rims, and i feel it's not wide enough to protect the lip of the rims. I would much rather damage the tire in a curb bump than my rim.

What's the widest i can get on 8.0" wide rims?
