must ride like a brick, and most probably rubs as well I would imagine. Parking must be a bitch too with such large wheels and wide resistance.

I'd say it's overkill. Plus, your camber/caster is probably off and never adjusted accordingly stressing your suspension.

Pics would help.

I'd be willing to bet they would be qute heavy which increases unsprung weight. If you are driving enthusiastically, that ismore weight your brakes directly have to slow. BIg wheels need big brakes, as the extra rotational inertia will have to be slowed somehow.

Oh, and if they are chrome they are rice ;-)
