    I have a 2012 3.73 AED tuned 5.0 with brembo brakes, cat / resonator delete , magnapacks, Prokit, BMR lca relocation brackets / panhard and a sound tube delete.

    I also picked up a set of 17x4 15x10 darkstars (thanks terry!) and now I am ready to put some meat on the wheels.

    Any suggestions on tire size? I hate the fact that i have to shift into 5th gear with my factory wheels.
    Would I need to run tubes with the slicks?

    I don't run tubes.

    28X4.50X17 M&H RaceMaster
    Same height, front and rear, keeps the ABS from going nuts!

    As noted, 28" rear is almost a must for a 3.73 car. I ran a 26"/28" combo and never had a ABS fault on highway cruises at 70-75mph. Also never triggered on runs up to 120mph.

    My ABS went nuts with the stock 28" tall fronts when I had 26X10.5X16s on the back.

    Hmm odd, cause the stock fronts aren't even 28", actually a little over 27", so should of worked fine with the 26" in back. I never ran that combo, always stock front and 28" back or 26" front and 28" or 26" back.
