Here is a sneak peak of what I decided on. Sorry but they will probably not get installed until end March/early April when a) the winter breaks in NJ and b) when my vibration problem is completely solved.

Wheels are staggered: MRR Design GT5's, 19x8.5 front +38 offset, 19x9.5 rear +45 offset. Fronts weigh 28.5# each; Rears weigh 27.5# each (the wider rears are lighter, I weighed them myself - weird). My G8 is Silver with Black accents and I love the deep lip so I thought these would deliver the look I am aiming for (new front lip spoiler will be dark carbon fiber too).

Tires are Hankook Ventus V12 EVO K110's, 255/40-19 Front and 285/35-19 Rear. Fronts weigh 29#; Rears weigh 30#. Total weight for all 4 wheels and tires is 230# - almost identical to stock. If I find that the 285's no longer light-up at will, the 3.70 rear will fix that. LOL.

New TPMS's came from our vendor, TPMSXpress.

I will remain at stock height for now. Once they are installed, I will check fitment to see if I can do a 295 on my next rear set.

Here are the pix...I'll try to get them installed as soon as it makes sense. Enjoy!

Wow, and I am not talking about the wheels. Interesting choice of color for the leather.
LOL. Leather couch is from 1991 when laquer, mauve, and teal were in :mullet::barf:

Last 10+ years, it's been in the basement where the kids can't detroy it because it's built like a tank. :)

Ok :judge: one single question
Why we are talking about the couch instead of the video game on to the second tire? By the way which game it is?

Finally! We have a Winner! Someone noticed it. It's the latest Forza that my kids play. My son built and races a G8 GXP in the game that looks a lot like my car. I just thought I'd throw that in there for fun.
