5/24/06 8pm. Help, I think i made a mistake just a minute ago(tire purchase)
Posted 24 May 2006 - 07:03 PM
I ordered the 215/85/15 TSL radials for my impreza. I heard good things about the tsl's and they were cheaper vs the newer ssr which i have heard isn't as good. I thought the size was 27inches but i just redid the math and its coming out 29inches. Ut oh.
So i suppose my question is, will these clear the spring perches or should i call 4wheelparts and switch the tsl's for 27inch ssr's. before they ship out.

I have a feeling i will need to call them and switch to 27" ssr's. Its going to suck because 5 tsl radials cost only $459(4wheelparts.com has free frieght shipping right now). 4 ssr's are gonna be $420. I dont know if i want to spend over 500 for tires.
Do you think i can squeeze 29's with a BFH? i am worried about not having enough fender to cut to make room.

Btw, what secret project would you be workin on?
I don't plan to go any further than an allied armerment lift and maybe swap in a rear lsd if i can find one cheap.

In the front they rubbed bad on the plastic mud guard in the wheel well, but no biggie. There's plenty of cutting and trimming to be done to squeeze them.
I'd say go with the 27s.
