I have found when the car is significantly lowered the OEM axles are not worth a whit. They can break very easily, especially the driver;s side. DSS axles are a must.
I have never seen CF rear camber arms before. Cool.
Sorry, Pat,,,,you want to play with the big boys, u need the right beefy parts. I dont think anyone has broken a DSS axle yet.

Perhaps you found a source that says 11.5. I believe you. But ALL these different tires in 315mmx17" say the 11 inch rim is recommended.

There are many more. Too many to list.

They are also saying a range of 10.5-12.5 inches. But all say 11.0 inches is the preferred width.
An 11.5" is the minimum width for a 335mm tire.

That is sad, but at least you didn't break the car while you were driving around, I guess once you ll get your car back everything will be ready to rip the ground!!!

As told to me by my supra buddies who run 17s that ideally 11.5 for 315. Which could mean 10.5 is bare minimum? I don't know for sure

All the TABLES and tire manufacturers say 11 inches. If one group of cars likes 11.5, that's just fine. Maybe that is for drag racing?

10.5 is the min and a lot of guys run 315's on 10.5's. I think 11's and definitely 11.5 wheels are very hard to find and are mostly made to order at a HUGE expense. Half an inch does not sound like much but it seems to make a difference in the tire and wheel world.
