By the way, not dissing your car at all, mattchatwin. Looks great and I'm actually thinking of those exact wheels in a 20 inch fitment, should Axis decide to make them in 20x8.5 and 20x10. Right now, the Penta only comes in a 20x9 and 20x10. Not sure the 20x9 will fit under the front fenders.
Actually, I was thinking that dropping it an inch would actually give it the illusion of bigger wheels and still have lots of room in the wells with the wider tires. I really thought about 20's but thought it was getting border line on weight issues though I noticed these Rims are super light. In the end it came down to a huge price jump to 20's and the ride quality seriously gets harsh after 40 profile rubber (I've had 35 and even 30 before and though it looks sweet, it rides terrible). For a daily commuter, no way should you go less than 40 (My opinion), on the track, absolutely!

You would go with an aspect ratio of less than 40 for the track?

hmmmmm

Love your car, just got my 08 black v6 coupe last week and looking for where to get the work wheels. Several places I called said they are special order and takes 6-8 weeks. Any info would be much appreciated. Also how is the ride, also going to lower mine too. Great job on your ride.
Thanks, CW

^ really i think it just needs a nice slam.

i have nitto 555 225/35/20's on my car and the side wall looks alot smaller than yours onewheelup. i would feel alot safer in your car. sometimes i get worried, especially when i see a big pot hole.... even worse, if its at the last second.....

I gain an extra 1/4 inch on the sidewall vs your tire setup thats why I have a little more sidewall (245/35 vs 225/35). I was just supprise that the setup Im running the ride didnt suffer much over the stock 18's.

For 19's, you're gonna want to go with 245/40/19 in front and 275/35/19 in back. 245/35 and 275/30 won't provide the correct diameter and your speedo will be way off. Offset should be as close to +40 as possible.

^i just like thin tires, especially if the wheels are 18's and up and the car is slammed. its really just a matter of personal preference. i just think that a thinner tire compliments a wheel alot more than a thicker tire.

honestly i like it in the middle im not too sure if these tires would look too big (therefore causing the rim to look small, which is my only worry) but then again i dont want a rubber band around my rim where ill lose ride comfort and where i could possibly damage the rim with potholes etc.

what profile size do you guys think wouldnt look too big (ex. a bit smaller than the pic) but not too small where it'll be just stupid to put on the rim.. schu you seem to know ur stuff good from what ive learned whats your input?..

^dont get me wrong there is a point where a tire can be too thin. i just think that 45's on 18s are too chunky

What about 35's on 20 inch wheel? I agree, 45's are too chunky. There has to be a good balance between comfort and looks, just my opinion.

I'm willing to bet you could do 40's on a 20 inch on this car. i have 40's on my 19 and there is plenty of room. What would happen though is you circumference would be bigger, thus you're higher off the ground and bigger spin and brakes decrease in stopping power. You'll want to upgrade brakes if that's the case. just not sure how it would effect other things like Speedomoter, etc.

That's what I'm running with my Axis Penta's and Kumho tires, I've posted a pic earlier in this thread (I think it's page 2 and it's the huge one). I think it looks really good.
