You spent all of that money on new wheels and tires for such a nice car, and then you cut corners by getting the wheels in 16's and put a big sidewalled tire on?! You should have gotten the 18's with the different width front and rears, and at least get a performance tire to mathc the performance engine. Save the anger flames everybody, just my two cents.

Here are pics of my car and my wife's car (picture quality not that great - I'll have to work on my digital photograhy skills. Thanks to Jason Blitz for his insight on wheel selection.

If I went with 17's or 18's with lower profile tires, I would have spent even more money on lowering springs and shocks to get rid of "fender-well gap". I also drive this everyday and need the balance of high performance and comfort; 18's would be a little harsh riding, especially if lowered.
