Thats Ok Zodiac. I wasnt sure how they were going to look with the Gold Stripe initially. But after I had them put on, I loved it..and still am loving it To answer your question about the wheels, I was debating weather to go with 255's all around or have 275's in the rear, finally I went with the 275's just because I really wanted the meaty look. The ride has changed a little bit, initially i could feel the car being a little heavier, but I got used to it pretty quickly. Since the tires are a lower profile than the originals, I feel the road more, which can be annoying at times, but its not too bad. Overall I dont think the performance has hurt too much, I love the fact that I can take some sharper turns now though. Hope this helps.
