Talking Best delievery ever

So i went to sleep like at 5am and I wake up 4 hours later to see if my tires got home. Wronnnng I woke up and did a lap around the house for nothing... lol So I go outside around one and I go to the backyard. I guessed they would at least try to hide the tires, but I didnt find anything. So as I walked to the front of the house I saw this

Ups Faillll hahahhahahahha, I mean they just hid it with a rug and left it in the front for everyone to see.... what if someone took my tires?

The rug nonchalantly draped over the Potenza rubber. hahahaha

Sweet though, new tires are always exciting.

you wont always need spacers for 17s. your probably going to need spacers for your 15s though. its all about offset and width. my 17s were just as big diameter wise as my 16s are now when the tires are all on. but the width and offset was different. your bottlecaps offset is like 42 or something high like that, that means when lowered they are probably going to get really close or touch the strut and you will need spacers. when i had 17s they were bout the same offset yet they were wider so they hit the strut and there was no way to be low w/o a spacer. but if the offset was lower it would have been all good. basically im just sayin get 17s, ive had 15-17 and 17s are the best.

lol I didnt want to go that big cause its gonna be expensive for tires.... thats why I wanted to stay either at 15-16.... damnnnn lol I didnt think there would be a problem with bottlecaps cuz I searched it up and someone else said they did it and it cleared.

it clears depending on the coilover and lowness and tire size etc. but i can be really close. and your wheels are going to look sunk. and bad. with some 20mm spacers it could be cool. tires arent that much more expensive for 17s and you really dont have to buy tires very often..
