picked that up at pull - a- part for 12 bucks!!Well,$19 counting the extra warranty.Im wanting to go with 8" rims instead of those 5.5's.What do you think?Think that would push the limit too far for the 235's???Oh,hopefully by march I can order Shrockworks stuff all around!! Going to run about $1200 for all 3 (front & rear bumpers and sliders)

Here is a decent tire Calc that I found that will give you a good idea of what the cross section looks like on the tire/rim configuration you are trying for. Looks like you will have about 1.3" difference between the footprint and the rim width. I like at least 2" difference myself. Check out the link:

Thanks,that link is pretty cool!I think im going to try the 8's.Bad thing is I just had these tires put on last week and already threw a weight and now I have a bad vibration up front.The dude that put them on at Walmart said I had two warped wheels?Would this be a common problem with the factory rims to anyones knowledge??

The factory rims are prettystrong, and unless they have been abused offroad or whacked on a curb they should be fine.

When someone claims there is a problem with the wheel, have them show you on the balance machine. if the problem is legit, they should have no problem showing it to you.

If I get motivated enough I'll be picking up a second job for some extra play money and I might get a nice zuk\geo and make it a project.

Love what you've done with it!
