Good to know. I'm going to go with the 305's on the rear, not sure about the front. This car definitely needs a wider tire, mostly for looks as the handling is fine.

Looks ok for 22's. They just barely fit. Nice looking wheel. How did they affect cornering and braking performance? The upgraded suspension should really help. Nice car!

Great idea! Would you say professional results are likely with your product? What tools are needed for install? Tinting in my area will run you at least $200. Could be a good deal.
