Wheel / Tire FAQ
Tire size calculator

Both of these are in the Wheel/Tire Faq of the suspension forum. I hope they help some. Also do you know or looked around at like tire rack or discount tire? You can buy a package deal and it will give you the size tire also. So there you can eiter purchase that set or use it to compare to a rim of the same size and look for the rim and tire seperately. If you get the proper tire on your rim your cars height will not change at all. Or it will change within fractions of an inch to where it wont hurt or be notices. To lower the car you will need springs or coilovers.

Check what NTTG posted thats a good one for calculating sizes. Also what I did with my Audi was I found someone on the forum whose stance I liked and asked them what they were running, including suspension. If you can compile pics of what you like and compare the measurements you can create for yourself a visual idea of what you want and like.

Still love my 4 rings, but now all I see is stars.
