Just remember to do your homework on actual tire widths- Star Specs tend to be wider than their advertised stats (r18/265mm is actually nearly 272mm!) By sometimes 2-7mm

No way dude, that size is going to rub all to hell. Get 225/ 40's. I have some 225's installed on 18" x 9". So on your 8.5" wheels they'll fit perfect, and be a little lighter than 245's. Also cheaper.

Wow, those rotors look tiny.

EVO X wheels for the VR4 acquired, here are the before and after pics of the major cleaning of them I did today. Next will be new tires, still thinking of which brand I should go with.

Looks good, you should paint the center caps silver to match. Maybe red diamonds as well? Get some toyos mang.

Haha get out of my head G! Lol that's exactly what I was gonna do, I don't know why they are white, I'm gonna see if it's just paint over silver, then I wanted to do the red diamonds.

I have 235/40 on my 18" wheels, will be back home this friday, can get you a pic of them, they donot rub and fill the wheel wells good. You do need to get biggerbrakes as the stockers look lost in them wheels.
