I didn't do much research before ordering those. I just did it to keep the speedo correct. Wasn't my best decision.
The stretch wasn't horrible, but it was more than I preferred.

In the summer, my Sonic RS runs 225x45 17x8 on Eibach Pros with 19mm adapters. Pictures in build thread. I like the look but experience major rub with rear passengers. Iirc my spedo is off by 2mph but helps because I always speed.

Im looking for a so I can get a little better ground clearance and help me out on the dirt "roads" I like going down in the mountains. I have stock 15in rims and I'd like to not have to buy new rims, but I guess I could save up a bit longer... Any suggestions?
