    Question What do I need to know before slappin on some 24's???

    Hey all,
    I am getting an unbeleivable deal on some 24's, need to know if there are any issues with just throwing them on??? Brakes, suspension, whatever or can they just be put on? Also, what size tire are you all running with 24X10 inch rims. Most rim places suggest 305/35/24, 305 just seems offly wide, don't want them to stick out past the well. Thanks in advance! Mike

    I've got BFgoodrich 305/35/ZR24. Bolted them on with no mods, but a new alingment is always good. I shaved some of the plastic wheel well in the rear to fix some minor rub on bumps. I get a very minor rub in the front now and again at u-turns. Tire look great and dont stick out. 24's are much heavier than stock so you will notice a reduction in break response. Not required but if you got the dough go for bigger breaks and rotors.
