295's should fit fine from what I've read. As long as your wheels have the correct backspacing. Post pics when your done

Not very big at all,very common size! I have seen a 315 rear with no issues! My 295s don't even fill up the huge wheel well on my 2011..I wish I would have gotten a 305 or 315.

I was kind of apprehensive about mine being too large, but once I put them on, they fit great! No rubbing so far either.

315/?

What size fronts? How much of a drop do the "K" springs give?

I'm also on the F14's, with 315/35/20 and 275/40/20, and want to lower mine with the FRPP 1" drop handling kit, but I don't think I can with the size of my front tires. They measure 28.6". Thanks.

I think wide tires look great on these cars!

Yours won't fill the wheel well like his 315s but you will like the improvement over stock! But if your like me they will leave you wanting bigger, like a 305 or the 315.....

K springs gave me a 1.5" drop and I have 275/35/20s up front. Oh yeah, I tried emailing Forgestar to ask what my offset was, but I didn't get an answer. Do you know what offset they made for you?
