I have a whole lot of ideas on future enhancements, though any suggestions are of course appreciated. Thanks for looking!

Looks great!

So the 245/45s have not presented a problem yet? No rubbing?

Thanks everyone for your comments!

Mz6GreyGhost absolutely no rubbing whatsoever, in fact, due to the increased tire section width and sidewall height, I'm getting unparallelled performance, being much better handling, comfort, grip, and driving pleasure. It even looks much better on the car which is an extra bonus. Besides, Pilot Super Sport is currently one of the best Summer tires currently out there, I'm pretty much speechless about the improvement this tire has provided, everything feels so much better, like driving a luxury car with all the efficiency of a sports car. I got an awesome deal of 4 tires for nearly $1000, I absolutely recommend these tires to anyone who has enough budget to spare and the same wheels as me.

6Y MAZDA, thanks for asking, I'm from Monterrey, Mexico. Streets here are crap pretty much everywhere, this is why I can't really afford to lower the car, so instead, my top priority was getting much better tires.

Excellent news! I won't be going for the summer tires, since they can't work up here in snow belt, but the 245/45s fitting is excellent news. There's actually more (and better) choices in that size compared to OEM.

That's great, though it's too bad you can't go with summer tires, still you will indeed feel a solid difference with this size, aside from the fact that your wheels will be much more protected. By the way, 1010Tires currently has a promotion, though I doubt it's that good since their tires are usually high priced. Tyrereviews can greatly help you in deciding which tire is more convenient for you, take a look here, here, and here. Once you decided on an specific tire, get back to me and I'll assist you in finding the best deal. Good luck. [:

Hey Aldo, great looking rims and tires.
Very glad that you do not have any rubbing too :)
Could you make one more picture from back of the car, where two tires with back fender will be seen too. I want to put 235/50r17 on my M6 for better handling so you pics will help :)

Wow that ended up looking really great. I also wanted to say thanks for showing off that matte black fog housing. I've been wanting to do that forever but couldn't get a good picture in my head of exactly how it would affect the look of the car. I'm glad to say it looks sick.
