your entire rim and tire size when its stock should not be smaller than your new rims and tires...you know what im sayin like the car would look alright if u got some bigger rims with smaller tires that r the same over all size of the stoke ones....but i would still rather go with the rule of getting 1 size smaller rims than stock..... :puffin:

I thought that was the whole point to going with a bigger wheel, keep the same diameter of the original tire-wheel combo. I guess some people are big wheel happy. Sad how some don't realize that putting too big wheels on their rides makes them look stupid. :uh:

That rule actually does exist. It's called Plus-1 and Plus-2 sizing (and sometimes Plus-3). It goes like this...

Take Plus-1 sizing for example... you increase your whell diameter by 1", add 10-mm to your tire width, and decrease your aspect ratio by 10%.

Plus-sizing is pretty much rule of thumb in order to not GREATLY affect speedo/odo calibration.

you guys are stupid fucks if you dont think lowriders are custom. alot of lowriders have more work and time into them then alot of trucks. seems like everyone who has a sport truck has someone else do all the air bags, shaving etc. im not talking shit because i work on trucks with 20s and bags all day long. but i have 13s on my car. its also completly shaved has bags and a loud ass system and i have done all the work. respect what you dont know because what you dont know will hurt you.
