    Aussie Maverick was kind enough to share with me his wheel/tire combo because I'm in the market for wheels/tires myself and love how they fit his car. Hope you don't mind me sharing ;)

    17X8 all around front: 235/45 rear: 275/40

    This is with rolled fender lips. He didn't know the back spacing but I'm guessing 4" or 3 1/2""?
