    that last pic makes it seem worse then it is but they are indeed reps and it's not that bad in person I just think they would be a bit better if they sat like the calypso car . I am 245 all around he looks to be 255 265

    Do you ever intend on a wider tire? Possible that could be a solution

    I'm thinking that may be the right route think I can get away with a 265 on a 8.5 wheel ?

    I don't think the .5 will be a big deal

    usually the general (unofficial) rule is 2" of tire wider than the rim

    265 would put you around 10.4".

    So that's pretty good.
