IMO these cars definitely need wider tires. Going taller will throw off your speedo, though. And if you have an auto it could mess with the shift strategy.

Not to worry, I believe you can tune the error out with a Diablo...

So these are the same height as original, they are not taller.

Absolutely perfect so far, no rubbing, handling is good, ride is good. Can't complain.. I was concerned with using this wide of a tire on the front with regards to them looking a bit stuffed. Honestly tho, they look great and look almost staggered.
