I fall in the same boat I like to modify my cars I can't leave well enough alone so I'm not worried about purchasing a slightly modified car My Ford Gt is "slightly modified" (1243 rwph)

I just picked up a second set of wheels for the car that were not painted once i get chance to put them on I will take some more pics and post I want to put slightly wider tires on those wheels as well and I will lower the car also but making sure nothing rubs again

any one use the wisetech coilovers ?
Yeah, people roll the fenders when they run bigger tires or less offset. Had to do that on my previous car, but I would cringe to do that on the SLS.

Probably a good idea to check you have the factory suspension. Might be happily surprised to find you already have something aftermarket. Should look like these. http://www.ebay.com/itm/281699092732

I'm thinking of going to 275 upfront and 305 in the rears on stock wheels. Anyone have that set up?

You can't get the correct tire height with those widths. I wanted to up the size in the rears, have to go to 325/25 to get the correct diameter. Otherwise car will sit high and speedo will be off. Also have to be careful front/rear are proper so you don't get issues with ESC errors. Unfortunately I still have a lot of tread on the crappy Continentals so it'll be a little while before I can test that.
