I just purchased a set of the 18x8" pegs for my T5-R. <p>The car is lowered with B&G springs. As of right now I am not rubbing the tires and I even have a set of 205/50 R17 on them (This is slightly bigger than the original). <p>Any of you that have run 18" rims on the lowered 850's, please suggest a tire size. I am afraid these might not work because of my suspension, but it's worth a try.

225/40/18's I prefer a bit more cushion than 35's offer.<p><IMG SRC="http://www.pbase.com/dkauer744/image/62089451.jpg" BORDER="0">

Re: New 18" Pegs... tires size? (jarediii)

I have another question.... and I apologize for not knowing the answer.<p>The new 18" Pegs are 8" wide... aren't my old Titan's 7" wide (according to the picture and specs in the classified section)? Will they still fit? With the stock Titans and my lowered car I only have 1/2" clearance at the fender well.

I have answered my own questions by measuring my Titans. They are 8". Why do the specs on the picture in the classified section show them as 7"?
