[DML] Re: all this tire stuff brings me to ask a question.

You must be extremely careful if you are considering changing the size
of the tires. You MUST make sure you will have the clearance required
at all positions of the suspension. Harder to do if the car is
lowered. It will also affect how the car handles, accelerates, and for
the front you will mess up the speedometer calibration. You will have
a hard time finding rims that will work, not many stock choices. You
might have to have something made up custom to work.
