After thorough research on tire sizes that would fit the bill for me (sticking with 18s), I installed a new set of wheels/tires on the car.

I have had several sets of Fikse wheels and have always had really good luck. I have a set of FM5's on my Vette now. Anyway, I went with 18x9.5 front (275/40-18 Nitto 555) and 18x10.5 rear (305/40-18 Nitto 555R).

The pics do not do them justice, but the lighting wasn't the best when I snapped these. I think they look terrific on the red car with black side stripes. I run the same tire combo (not necessarily the same size) on my Z06 and Lightning, so I knew what to expect from that and am extremely pleased. Car hooks up great in 2nd gear, even at nearly 580rwhp.

Fikse has always made a great looking, high quality product. Those look very nice!!

Could we get a profile shot? I am curious how that 40 series tire looks on the rear!
