Need More Tire!!
 
2 Attachment(s)
I have maxed out what I can fit with stock configuration for wheeel/tire in the rear. Currently running 18' 305. I need more tire!!!:ben: I'm not really a fan of full body kits. Rather, really just looking for a way to just increase rear fender space so that can run 345's. -yes I know I'm not alone - Attached are pics of a car that is very much what I'm looking for. It reportedly took 100 shop hrs and gained 50mm. Looks like they tucked the rear bumper under, so no wide body rear bumper was requred. In my area there are very few body shops that will even roll the fenders, much less do the type of custom work that is likely required. Need to gain about 1.5". Willing to ship car to a shop if necessary. Looking for suggestions......Anyone.....???

Thanks

:Edit: You might want to think about have them clear bra the under side of your rear bumper. You Will spit rocks and mess up your paint if your fender doesn't completely cover the tire.
Back there.

305 is more than enough to go 4.xx second 60-130.

I ve tested various tire sizes and 305 is ENOUGH.

All you need to do is set the COMPLETE VEHICLE AS PERFECT AS POSSIBLE SO THAT IT HOOKS.

I would not spend any money for widening the rear arches.

My sub 4.xx second 60-130 will be made with smaller than 305 tires as well.

Thanks Mert. But this is not to improve 60-130. I want to improve traction in 2nd gear. As for my 60-130, since I did not spin on my 5.4 sec. pull, I'm confident there is little if any need to improve traction for that.

Do you have a pic of yours?

MaverickM3 11-26-2012 04:40 PM

I will take some pics later today.

305 in a r888 or nt05-r should suffice on an 18" wheel; what tires are you running at the moment? Any pics of your current set-up?

I am running nitto555, and have run MT DR. Trust me with the new 6766 and 750whp, there's very little traction in second.

My next move is to the 295/45/17 MT's. Under the stock arches, that is going to be the most tire and it should give pretty good traction...

Not yet, still on the 6776 for now.

I think the 295 MT will give you more traction than a 345 Nitto due it being both taller and have MUCH more sidewall.

Was going to go 345 Mt which I think is a 35 side as opposed to 30 in nitto 345 Trying not go 17s....

Well, in that case! Damn! Interested in this!

The tall MTs are very unstable at high speed; I would not feel comfortable running a MT at the Shift S3ctor events, where we hit 170+; perhaps, short bursts of 60-130, but nothing greater.

I think they are unstable only when you lower the pressure in them. I was running over 30psi in them and they felt perfectly stable.

With those you will see 1,1g - 1,2 g in 2nd gear.

Jake, I think 1,2 g in 2nd gear will be satisfactory.

Thats why I think 345 is not needed.

str8dum1 11-27-2012 12:08 PM

like others have said, you need a taller tire not wider.
