    265/75/16's on stock wheels with no lift. No rubbing even at full lock unless suspension is compressed. Hope to get my coilovers in a week or two. I took a short trip out on the highway and with windows up you really have to listen to hear them hum. I'm sure they will get a little louder as they wear but they are way quieter than I expected. $759 out the door.

    Good looking tires. I've had a lot of luck with Kumho's on-road tires. Keep us posted on the performance of these things!
