don't go anymore of a diameter then 27" and you won't need a recalibration...dealers usually charge $50-60 for that if needed though...

as for what's the best combo...thats an opinion for everyone and there is no 1 correct answer

yes...any tire that follows that 27" diameter will work perfectly fine

^^ correct. basically as long as you maintain the same overall diameter that your stock setup is supposed to have you wont need to recalibrate the speedo. if you want to find out your exact diameter of your stock tires go to Tire Rack - Your performance experts for tires and wheels

99-04 is a 27" diameter just for quickness, but thanks for the link if they need it...

@2000...im selling htem to a friend..then ill save for some hypercoated GT4 wheels with a nice wide rear...but if you think i change alot you should see my friend gage...he'll go through maybe 20 sets a year...i know so far he's changed 2 time in 2011 lol..he buys and flips wheels for profit so he never keeps them for long and they always have new tires...now he's rolling on 18" DD black bullets...last week were 18" chrome fr500s, and in Dec they were hypercoated 18" saleens
