Wheels: Outer Plus Toybox Hethel Wheels 16x7 ET+22 Front, 17x8 ET+35 Rear
Tires: Toyo R888 195/50/16 Front, 255/40/17 Rear
Suspension: Fred's Penske 2-way shocks , 500F/700R (stock aero)
Brakes: OEM S240 BBK

Thought the rear tire sidewall looked small compared to front. So I went to a 255/40. Folks on the forums said it didn't fit. It worked for me. No spacers. Sidewall on R888 also bulged less.
