Got my new Forgelines installed today

Very nice. What sizes are they? Looks like matte black centers with high gloss black rims?

Looks great, except for the rear tires have a "stretched" look to them now.

The specs on the rear Pirelli 285/35/19 call for a 9.5"-11" rim size....that means the stock wheel is the bare minimum width.

True. Just looks awkward (imo) :)

They honestly dont look very stretched in person and now they actually match the fronts better. Factory looks funny to me with the "stretched" look up front and square rear tire. They are still less stretched than the fronts when you see them up close. 9.5" is the minumum that is to be used so these match up better.

I concur, the stock setup in the rear looks like the wheel is actually not wide enough. I love your wheels, although I can't afford them. Awesome job!
