on a 10.5+22 you're looking at a 265/35/18 with a roll/shave or 275/35/18 with a minor pull.

Lol all 4 tires are 245/40s ( if I can't trade them back in I'll keep them for the fronts) I know the rears would have to be wider to look decent, I'll probly go either 265 or 275 size
not worrying about the roll or pull, I got a roller on stand by if I need it, I really wanted to roll this anyway from previous owners accident it's all wavy as flock.
i can't wait to get the wheels

To give you an idea of what it's going to look like this is a 265/35/19 Yokohama S. Drive on a 19x10.5 +23 with shaved fenders and -1.9 degrees of camber. From what I can remember, it only rubbed on big dips and occasionally going up driveways (it was never able to make it up my driveway in this configuration). If you're willing to pull just a little, then you should have no issues.

The only reason I mentioned doing the 9.5 +22 instead was because I figured you'd want more tire once that na-t engine goes in.

Fronts were 19x9.5 +24 with a 235/35/19. The car belongs to one of my friends. I've put enough time into this build that I can answer questions like it's my own car.



Meisters were eventually refinished and installed on this manual swapped SC400.

Thanks for the specs and pictures I have some rebuilt Work Equip's in basically the same size (19x9.5+28&19x10.5+26) that were gonna go on my GS. After seeing those pics though, they might be going on the SC instead lol.

Yeah, that's perfect sizing for the SC. I can show you exactly what it'll look like. lol

Default Can some please help me, today been trying to find why my 1992 sc 300 is in safe mode

I am trying to find out why my 1992 sc 300 is in fail safe mode. No overdrive. No check engine light/ trans light. I had a o/d off light flashing while drive for a while. Replaced shift solenoids. Light went off still not overdrive. Transmission does not slip and feels strong. Last time it was not in fail safe mood was in the highway before the solenoids was replaced. Had no overdrive but have it near 70 mph and than for no reason and car did not skip a beat or slow down rpm's jumped from 4,000 rpm to 5,700 and damn I really hit the brake. I am think bad sensor. Can a o2 sensor make it go into fail safe mode? I have had 3 people say it needs a dealer level scanner, like at Lexus or transmission shop, but they all said that in the phone. But would they even be able to see it was o2 sensors? I hate to say someone and get no where. Damn obd 1.

Congratulations on hitting 200K! I have 123K on mine and I'm trying to baby my miles. Sometimes it defeats the purpose of enjoying such a wonderful vehicle.
