Try mounting a 245/35/18 V710 in the winter onto a stock RX8 rim. You got nothing on that.

That's nothing. You got more side wall on that tire.

Did you do it old school or with the fully mechanical tire changer?

I know what you mean. My favourate trick is fire.

So I assume your dealer has the fully mechanical tire changers.

Cumhoe has been doing this for years.

it's more visible than those letters on low profile side wall . It looks cool in person, but only if it comes with a better name

385 is pretty freaken wide. but u think of it, the stock lambo merc runs on 355 wide 18s. so for all those ballers out there that want bling 20s or 22s, they need to go a bit wider.

also, these numbers are in mm's too. my little lexus went from 225 to 275, so going from 355 to 385 doesnt sound that drastic.
