hello everyone.....has anyone seen the 300c on 27"s ???
tommy Z
Maybe these are 27"s? :D



Someone would have to make some serious modifications to get 27"'s to fit.
For some reason I think 24"s may be the biggest that would fit the stock car.
24"s would probably have some rubbing problems.

I don't know the sizes of these wheels, but I am guessing they are 23" or 24"

Found this pic and info on a car rim site...



300c on 27" Asanti Wheels on Special 22" Tires by Nitto
NOT RECOMENDED, TIRES RUB TREMENDOUSLY
Unless you plan on doing major body work to your car please
do not inquire about these for your 300c.

That lava red one is actually mine, i built new spindles and the car was only made for the SEMA show in vegas , then i intended to make the spindles for resale so anyone could bolt on 23"s -or 24"S ....my main project is the body kit , i had a friend make the hood for us and we made the grill and body kit with rear lip spoiler, it was called the 300special.....

Search the forum, there are two threads I believe with pictures of it...

Joey, 23 rub and I don't think 24 fit without mod.

~~~~Edited~~~~
I see you posted the same pics as on the other posts... those are 27
http://superbuytires.com/wheels/model/Lexani/Johnson/

they only make them on 27...
Guess I am not a good judge of rim sizes :eek:
I couldn't image 27"s fitting.
I assumed the car pic I attached had been lowered and was riding on something less than 27". But now looking at the pic again, the car does appear to be riding much higher off the ground.

tommyz,
Really nice car. How drivable is that car on the road?
Here is another pic of your car I had saved awhile back. Not much of a different angle, but a little bit bigger. Unfortunately, both of these pics are not the best quality.

The grill on this car is fabulous.
Tremendous mod.

Get that one out there if it is not too complicated.
Nice work.

I am curious how these over sized wheels effect ESP.
Is there an electronics tweak that adjusts for the bigger wheels?

OK, unless there has been some HUGE change ................... THOSE 27's are actually 22's with a "wrap around" on the outside edge of the rim. Look close and you can see it. 22" tires mount from the back side and the front wrap makes it look like 27's. There is no actual 27" wheel yet. And they are not "special" 22's, just normal (??!!) 22's.

;)

You seem to be quite the know it all, Yes that is exactly what they are a plain old regular 22" with a 27" face and the (Not so special ) Nitto tire is beveled around both sides so you actually get a great ride because the tire is in reality a 305/65/22 i think something like that, so yes i only had to strech my spindles 2.5" for the not so special 22" wheels.......lol

I will take your word for it. The picture quality on my laptop isn't quite good enough to read the tire size. I took the tire size from the website with the pics.
