Customer of mine with the new bullets laced up. Could not be happier with the fit.

18X9 fronts
18X10 rears
YES they are in the Tbird Bolt pattern. All you have to do to run these is tie up your ebrake cable & run rear airlift bags to keep from rubbin the fender lips. Or roll the fenders if you would rather. I recomend the bags though.

Recomended tire size is 245-45-18 fronts & 275-40-18 rears. We have tires available as well. Just ask...

Questions and comments welcome.

so what exactly is the reason for the way stretched 275 on the wide rim?

do the tires hit the sway bar or something if they are any wider?
Simple explanation...They are probably a 265-35-18 since the Dunlop Direzza is is not even built in a 275MM tire in an 18" option in the DZ101 which is what appears to be on the car.

A 275MM tire fits perfect on a 10" wheel...

I would think so because I am running 275-40-17's on 10.5' inch wide rims in the rear and they are flush. When I first got my rims the guy put 245's on there and they looked rediculous so I had to swap them out.

I think i've said it multiple times now but they are 275/35/18. They ARE a 275 mm tire. I am not sure why you keep insisting that they are 265-35-18. I know how to read tire specs. Now i am not sure if this particular dunlop model or dunlop tires in general run slightly small for their size. I can't imagine a tire being misprinted. Here is a link to a nationally known and respected tire dealer that HAS dunlops in multiple models in a 275-35-18 NOT 265-35-18. I don't see why i'd need to prove something like this, but i can take a picture of the side wall if an interested buyer inquires about it. Again i agree that the tires i am running do look stretched, but i can reassure you that the tire itself reads 275-35-18, i will say again as i did before i am unsure if these tires just run a little small or what, but they ARE listed as a 275mm and dunlop DOES make these in this size. Thank you everyone.
