    Default Meaty, Meaty, Meaty Tires!!

    So no offense to anyone on here, but this is for all these fake a** people telling me. "Oh no, it won't fit, ruin your suspension, take those tires back, your fender will cut them up. Your ride quality will ruined, any bump you go over will crack/bend your rim, those are too big!! You're not going to be able to turn" All these things people said to me, but I still was not going to settle for less. Yeah that's right, I'm running 305/35/20 in the rears, with 42mm offset. See they don't have the NT555R's in 295 or anything like that. In fact I think they only have 2 sizes in 20's and that's the size I have and 275/35/20. I was not going to settle for that size of tire, while all my friends are getting 305's why couldn't I? Yes they have American cars, but I thought I could participate with having wide tires. I tested them for a few hours today driving aimlessly, and wow the grip is amazing.. I can finally pull the ESC fuse and not have lame nanny lag. Anyways, I went over bumps, train track and potholes (on purpose) and it was fine. Ride quality feels the same, if not better! Oh, and let me know what you guys think of my new wheels btw!! They're pretty pricey, but if anyone wants to run the same wheels I can link you!

    Do you plan to roll the fenders in the future?

    I tried getting the fenders rolled prior to install, guy said they were pre-rolled from the factory already. He either didn't know what he was talking about or what, but then again when filling around there is no metal plating like you would feel on a different car, so he could've been right.

    84FordMan, glad to see you on my thread!! Have to say you are one of my favorite members here. The rear is 20x10 42mm offset, fronts are 20x9 38mm offset. I'm pretty sure 38mm offset is the same as the factory wheels is why I went with 38mm.

    Since you're 19....I'll forgive you.

    285's would be a better fit and the wheels would look much better (imho)

    2013 Hyundai Genesis 5.0 V8 R-Spec Titanium Gray Metallic (fastest color Rspec) (sold)

    Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience

    Haha yeah maybe, can't be settling for less tho man. I wanted wide tires to have zero wheel spin, 285's are wide yes, but there is still a chance of wheel spin. I can let you drive my car, and you can literally feel it stick to the pavement!

    I understand what you saying, I had a '13 Rspec and those OEM tires 235's were a joke, seriously. I'd probably went with wider tires, but I traded it in for a '15 V8 and now I have 285's on 10.5 width rims.
