[email protected] VIP- I hear ya on that. I feel like the 19x10 has a stretched tire look that is fitting for that. Next time I'm gonna try a 285 tire since I cant change my rear to 19x9.5....

from what i understand theres only certain coilovers that will work with wider fitments or meatier tires??? ground control COs are the best if you plan to be 'slammed'???

good example would be HRE 540 vs. HRE 540R:

Got it, thanks! I usually hear it referred to as something else but can't remember right now...maybe staged lip or stepped lip? I think that is mainly with 3 piece wheels, I don't care for that look either.
