FInally gettin my tires mounted up!

So i ordered a pair of Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3's for the rear about a month and a half ago and have been loving them. I didnt' have the cash for the front at the same time so i got cheaper kumho ecsta supra 712s. These are rated as a performance tire but when i took corners they had way too much slip. So i went back in and told Discount Tire i was dissatisfied and wanted the eagles up front as well. They are givin me full coverage on the current tires even with the mileage i put on em and just chargin me the original price difference between the two.
So either today or tomorrow i'm gonna be rollin with 4 245/45zr17 Goodyear Eagle f1s!!!

Ya that is almost 10in wide on all four corners! can't wait to get my springs

Will the rears fit? And after lowering will you not have to roll the fenders?

Yea its the one on lakeway

no its not a free upgrade. They are just giving me the full credit on the other tires so i just have to pay 170 to get the front two now cause i already paid for the kumhos. My point was that i have put quite a few miles on these tires and they are still treating them like new (full credit)

I'm not sure about the rubbing i think i may have to roll the rear fenders. the fronts will be fine for sure but it depends on how stiff the springs are. i had 4 full grown guys in my car and i wasn't rubbin in the rear yet. i figure the new springs won't go lower than it was then so hopefully it'll work!!

But yea right now the rears fit fine.
