Exactly... How short are yours compared to stock height.

I would say they are an 1" or 1.5" smaller with the 30 series. Wish I would have been patient for the 45 series, but oh well. I will smoke the hell out of the ones I got. If you wanna know for certain the size difference I will measure tomorrow for you.

No worries. Should be a 2.5" height difference between the two. Both great tires.

Just got mine together. I went with 305/45/18 NT05R. I have not mounted them yet.

Looks great OP! Does anyone happen to have a picture of 20" on the front w/ the 18" wrapped in drag radials on the rear? I currently have 20"x9" up front and 20"x11" in the rear right now. I'd be very interested in shrinking the rear diameter, wrapping it with more sidewall and better tires depending on the look.

I just ordered mine. Should have them next week. Went with NT05R again (currently run the 315/35/20). Almost went with MT Street R, and although not a daily, i do occasionally get caught in the rain and my current NT05Rs have been decent for what i do on my twin turbo setup.

Very sweet. Looks mean as hell too!

I'm surprised you had no issues running the 305/45's on there being a 2014 1LE.. I just got the same 18"rims but haven't got dr tires yet because I wasn't sure if 45's would cause issues. I am leaning to go with the 315/40/r18 but not sure if it will rub being a 315..

I felt i was taking a chance as well with it. Been driving it all week and havent had any issues. My other choices were the mt street r 305 45 18 (also a 29" tire) or the m&h 325 40 18. The m&h arent as wide as the numbers say so i wouldnt expect them to rub. Since i do like to daily it in the summer if there is no apparent chance of rain, i went with the nitto. My NT05R 315 35 20 did decent last year considering the power my car has, so i went with the 18" version and love it so far.
