Im picking up these rims Gram Lights 57F

they are 8.5 wide but regardless if i choose the 7.5 wide or the 8.5 wide it says the tire size for my car should be 225 wide, how wide can you go on a 8.5" wide rim without sacraficing performance and safety, furthermore, is that too wide for the supra to worry about rubbing *im lowered 2.5 from stock all round* and furthermore to that, would it make more sense to go 225/40/18 on front and 245/40/18 on back? I remember hearing that different sizing upsets balance.

haha yeah, but i have realized 2 things about dealing with supras this long. 1) 95% of supras are rusted, so ill make this one rust free and make it so it will never rust again and 2) id like to do up my first car so when im old i can say i still have my first car, and besides, im ordering a jdm 1jz and stroking it to 2.8L

Gross, 245's in the front? Silly! If you like having your car being *pulled* into grooves and recesses on the highways sure.

No, 245 is too big in the front. The thicker the tire is, the harder it is to drive on streets where there are grooves from wear/over weight vehicles (ie mckenzie, quadra, douglas etc.) as it pulls you into those grooves.

dude it is all based on the tire and it's called tracking on how well your cars blet will react to the uneven pavment
