my build thread (and my sig pic) have a few side pics of my car with 22" replicas on stock ride height, scroll down this page and you'll see pics of it parked http://www.jeepgarage.org/f167/my-bi...d-64491-4.html

and this page while in motion

page 6 onwards is when it was lowered

Thanks. Sweet ride by the way. What was the ride like before lowering? (Notthat it will deter me. It is a sports car after all and not a grocery getter). I wanna lower it but since I'm living in southern Italy and don't have a trusted shop yet I only want to do mods that I can do on my own. Luckily I have access to a lift, but don't have ability to do an allignment. That's why I am scared to lower. Unless anyone knows a good trustworthy place near Gaeta. Lol. (In between Rome and Naples). Can't wait to take delivery! Gonna take a while through military channels.

I went to Italy twice, not once did I see an American car, this beast will look great there, the ride was horrible when I had the run flats on stock rims, then I got 22" rims and non runflat tires and the ride somehow improved even with the larger rims, so whatever tire you end up getting, from a personal experience, stay away from run flats, looing forward for the pics once you get it, I love when I see pics of these beasts in Europe :D

They are running 305/35/22 on them. They are a 45mm offset. I was speaking to Chad @ Blackops today and with that offset he told me that there is no tire rub. Even with a lowered truck.

jerzjunior 12-24-2013 07:25 PM

That's sick. Thanks for the info gonna have to get in touch with blackops especially as delivery of my SRT gets closer. Just wonder if they can mount and balance pre shipment, and box each individually and ship USPS instead of UPS since I have a military adress here at thebase I work on.

sorry I took a while to reply, here is a pic of how they ship them, I have the 285 40 22 Nitto's on them, the tire was mounted to the rim TPMS installed and they were balanced, essentially they were plug and play lol

I now have my car lowered with Roadmagnet's mid level drop and no rub what so ever, let me know if you have any more questions
