    Not meaty by most standards, but I think these BF Goodrich have a more meaty look than the stock Michelins.

    The stock Michelin's were probably the narrowest 215's I've ever seen, the BF Goodrich fills the wheels much nicer.

    I'm planning to get the Megan Racing Lowering Springs (~1.3" drop). What is a good meaty setup for my car ('15 Si Sedan), that doesn't require much camber or rolling fenders. I really want 18x8.5 et35-45 (rather 45 than 35) with 245/35/18 tires. I like the meaty look and massive camber is . I already checked willtheyfit, just need some real person advice on this.
    These will be the wheels (either powdercoated or dipped a darker bronze)
    (Konig Milligrams, they are a pretty decent brand from the reviews I read)

    IMO 245/35 is not meaty. yes it is wider but you will have less sidewall than stock. and the overall diameter is smaller than stock. maybe just go with a 235/40?

    So it would fit without much rolling or camber (with 235/40/18 and the 18x8.5 et45)? I'm not really so hot with rolling (because the ones I see are horribly done, with paint chipping and uneven rolling), or a lot of camber (because you know #slammed and not being able to get anywhere in Chicago at all), some is fine though.

    With the mild drop, you should not have any issues. 18x8.5 +45 only pokes 14mm more than stock
