Tire set up for rear on stage 2/pro efi

Ok what size rear tire can I use on stock suspension and 19" m6 time attack replicas? I like the r888 but don't think 295s will work. I have TR1 toyo on now. Rear tires are shot. Btw no fender roll either done. Thx

295 R888's are going to be your best bet...ROLL THE FENDERS! Find someone good to give you the space.

Second bet that won't require a roll...275/30/19 NT05's guaranteed to fit...but the 275/35/19's get more traction but likely need some roll...and the R888's well...traction is a guarantee with those.

My buddy Dallas runs those tires on a Cor 19x10.5 or 19x11 with aggressive offset...you will fit with a proper fender roll...find a good place to do it that pulls the gunk out before rolling.

I'm running the nt05's 275/35/19 and they rub slightly. Was told need to raise the rear 1/4 inch so i decided to go get the fenders rolled instead. Going Mon morning and i'll report back with how much it helps and before/after pics.

Here's how my 295's fit on a 19x10.5 rolled fenders running -2.0 degrees Camber.


Here you can see they tuck nicely under load (Watch in full screen)

When you guys go you fenders rolled was it jus the metal that slanted upwards or did you do the bottom part too? Hopefully, I'm wording this correctly as mine we were only able to do the slant and the guy that does the rolling said in order to do the bottom part there may paint damage.

My Ride: e85 turbo m3

this is 275/35/19 rear tires is et20 10 inch wide... my fenders are not rolled although they are cut and sealed for maximum clearance

I also have a pair of 18 apex arc-8 the rear is 285/35/18 10 inch wide offset is et25


both of them hook very nicely and both of them have the same tires on them nitto Nt05
to my understand toyo R888 are the best tire for some grip but have a life spand of 3000 miles depending how you drive them and we all know your not gonna be babying the car around... also if you ever get caught in a rain storm they are scary to drive in the rain

Only 3000 miles on r888?? Well maybe I will rethink the NO5 cause I can let the pro efi traction control do it's job. Thank

Traction > Traction Control...faster as well. You drive a 600+hp car who the fvck cares about tire mileage.

Also the NT05's are great in the rain...R888's also work very well in the rain...I have driven them through a torrential downpour several times.
