Upgraded tyres... heh

Ok so I decided to upgrade the size of my tires. Seeing how it is raining out I did not get to put them on the car yet.

Original size 275x40x17 on a 17x9 rim (you see a spare I had )
New size 335x30x18 on my 18x10.5" rim



As soon as this damn rainy weather stops here I can finish up my suspension upgrade to coilovers and put these babies on.

265x35x18s up front.

Wanted to go 275x35x18 but already know that with the drop I am doing with the coilovers I would have to roll my fenders and I just dont want to do that at this time.
