Awesome pics! It'd look a bit more proportional with taller tire profile in the rear but then you'd probably have fitment issues though.

Is that the Nyan cat 280zx? lol http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yp7g_xUJ ... ure=relmfu

taller tire in the rear would look dumb, fitment issues aside.

I had nothing to do with that video.

nvm if you're already running 50's all around, I guess the slammed height and over saturated pics made it look thinner than they are. I'm running 225/50 all around and feels pretty good. Even at my ride height it's mm's away from the air dam.

Taller just in the rear like a dragster is not what I was implying, like I said some of the pics made it look like 35 or thinner sidewall.
