  • Wide body and 10" wide wheels done

    Hey guys, thought I would share my car now with flares and 17X10 FNO1RC's. Taking the car to Thunderhill on the 21st to see how much more grip I have.

          That's a pretty tall tire. Interesting to see if having to raise the car up slows it down more than the extra grip speeds it up.

            Didn't raise it up at all and so far no rub issues. I will certainly let you know.

              Well that's good that you now have more grip and stuff, but dang is that thing ugly.

                Don't forget this is NRR, not Zilvia, where people on here are exact 180* from Zilvia kids.

                  Even if you kept your suspension the sane, the larger wheels would raise up the car. This change in CG height is what I was talking about. Unless you lowered the car more to accountfor the larger OD of the tires...

                    **** is tall, but works ok for me. I wonder if a 255 on a 10" wide wheel will do any better for lessening the diameter due to a slight stretch. LAst time I ran 255s though I would just spin coming out of a corner all day....those were victoracers so a decent tire too.


                    Looks good to me though, gl

                        dont make petty arguments here, fitting those wheels is a challenge, i got 17x9.5's with 275/40R17's and had rubbing issues with the pinch weld int he wheel well up front on both sides, so bad it would dig into the tire so i had to us BFH to fix that protrusion, but i can still hit but not with the turning i do on track, only with parking and sharp off track turns.

                          Yeah, I already did the pinch weld adjustment with a BFH, we must buy our tools at the same place

                              FWIW: The 285/30/R18's are a bit smaller rolling diameter (24.8" vs 25.6"). If you come across clearance issues or want the car slightly lower, it may pay off to go with slightly bigger wheels. The other option is to swap to Hoosiers with the 275/35/R15's (23" diameter). They're getting pretty popular so I'd imagine it'd be easy to find take-offs in those sizes.
