Now it's Officially a Storm Trooper!

So I finally got some new wheels & tires on the car. Didn't go to crazy with sizes because i'm not too comfortable with the idea of fender rolling. That being said, I think the wheel/tire combo looks perfect despite the car needing to be lowered soon.
Car hasn't been washed in a week so forgive me for the dirtiness.
Just took these after getting installed about 2 hours ago, but I'll have some better pics soon once I lower it.
Special thanks to Oakos Automotive for a great deal on the wheels!

Wheel:
Enkei RPF-1
18x9.5
+15 offset

Tires:
Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110
245/40R-18

Suspension:
Stock...for now
































Let me know what you folks think!

Thanks everyone. I'm definitely going to be lowering it soon. Right now, this was a big investment for me as I recently got married and my wife and I are currently house shopping. So the budget is kind of tight. Since this is my DR, i'll probably go with a set of Eibachs and then eventually upgrade to some coilovers.
I love the way the car looks. Even with it's monster-truck suspension, it's such an aesthetic upgrade IMO. Makes you wonder why Mitsubishi doesn't just offer wheels like this from the factory.

Nice, dude. Going the same exact set up. You should Plasti-Dip the front emblem so it's stealth from the front.

After seeing these of 245 I think I'm going to go 255/35 instead of 265/35. Can't decide though...:'(
