Does anyone know how wide I can go with a new Nitto's on all 4 corners?

The car is lowered 1" in the front and 1.5" in the rear, but she is a nasty bitch on all paws!

Thanks in advance.

The largest you would want to go on stock rims would be 305/35/18's in rear and 275/40/17's in front.:thumbsup:

I happen to have that setup in my kitchen for my '02 Z.:thumbsup:

The tires I run on the track are the Nitto 555R-II's, which are in those sizes. This is not recommended to be a street tire. But certainly check Nitto's other offerings. :thumbsup:
