i just made an account on her to be able to see others thoughts on their cobalts and needed some help on mine. I'm looking to get a new set of tires and rims, but i want a wider tire and to have the stretched look off the rim? what can i get that is all season and will perform great with the performance look I'm looking for and low profile with out needing to mod the wheel well

That's gonna be a tuff one. For starters what is your rim size now? 16x6? I upgraded to 18x8 with continental tires. Tire size is 225/40 R18. With a moderate drop you should be ok, but much more than a moderate drop you are gonna get tire rub. I had to flare out my rears just a bit to make it work but I'm fairly low on coilovers.

Also, the stretched tire look is nice but not practical in any way.
