    Anyone have any recommendations on tire size to take up the space, sure I know I could lower it but maybe a little larger tire won't be so bad either.

    Also open to rim/tire combos since my girlfriend says my wheels look like flowers! Maybe staggered?

    Lower it! No way you can fill the wheel well just with bigger tire size unless you install some tractor tires!

    Ha! I second Oma's very direct answer to your conundrum.

    Absolutely LOWER IT!

    1st pic, and older one of my SHO, on factory wheels/tires, and lowered on H&R's, parked next to bone stock set up on a silver SHO.

    Remaining two, on powdercoated gloss black TSW Nurburgring (staggered), Conti DSW shoes, and rocking the original 32 way adjustable Megan Racing coil overs.

    Day shot, and a night shot.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    So tempting. I I think I’d start with lowering the rear to level her out and see what she looks like

    Next up will be the H&R springs when they arrive.

    Pretty sure that is the Duraflex front lip from the other thread, and the rest is stock. It is just painted black, IIRC.

    There isnt much of an aftermarket for body kits for these cars. Remember, it is a Taurus.
