Nitto's and Toyo's are subpar, the BFG Rival S is a great tire, the PS/2's and Super Sports are better though, more stability and they will pull over 1g consistently, I've run every known quality brand of tire (even Vredestein's) over the last 20 years and I would say Michelin is my favorite brand ! Bridgestone and BFG are in 2nd and 3rd.
Offer much appreciated but ordered wheels & tires yesterday thru Forgeline & JonB.

Do you have lowering caps? Are you having any rubbing issues?

Since OP doesn't need them, I might be interested. How much $$ are you looking for? What's the manufacture date?

Fronts tires are Michelin SS Dot Code Aug 2014 8.5/32nds of 10/32nds new , Rears are Michelin PS2's Dot Code Dec 2008 8/32nds of 9/32nds new I put on 4 months ago , always kept in a climate controlled garage, car has never seen rain, only 3k on them. Very good condition as they were on a rarely driven showcar.

Make me an offer !!

Decided on VR3's, graphite vs black, polished fasteners, 19/20 stagger.

Owner of this ride on the board?

Bonus: Forgeline is 30 minutes up the road so was able to meet with Mark in person & look around their manufacturing operation, impressive.

Worked with JonB for the package deal at Viperpartsrack... thanks Jon

What widths for the wheels did you go with ? Tire sizes ?

That's awesome Forgeline is your neighbor, they make quality wheels indeed !

It's not lowered, I just went with slightly thicker tires, rear has increased from 25.9" to 28" in diameter and front from 25.5" to 26.2" , it fills the wheelgap and gives a smoother ride, as for rubbing I had a few issues in the rear but power sanded the rear fender liner down 10mm, that fixed the rubbing completely !

Hmm, I'm reluctant to take a punt on 9 year old rears now to be honest. My current rears are 11 years old and almost look showroom new with plenty of tread but stick like hockey pucks . Thanks anyway!
