eh? What's your recommended sizing oh racing car padawan?

Part was bad driving, just too fast for the conditions, on cold tyres, and went too wide in the wet on turn 7 through all the shite that collects out there (even thought i've done this 3 friggin times before). Actually thought as I went around 'wow, have lost it bad here before', then BOOMSKI, back flicks out and I'm spinning and no amount of fast twirling has me back on the track. Once on the grass, both feet on the brakes, car stalls and I'm a passenger slowly sliding towards the wall. Ended up a few metres away, bogged of course and had to slooowly reverse out.
C'mon, do it!

I've just checked my video footage, but with the camera angled towards the driver's side, it only shows me slowing right down to check you're ok, and then my acknowledgement of your "the car is just close to the wall, not in the wall" thumbs up.

std size is best  :cool:

or pump it up to 295/35/18

running 295/30 is shite (but it's what many do as the tyres are cheaper/more readily available)

as is anything less than original correct rolling circumference.

Looks shite too with great big wheel arch clearance like that.  :tilt:

Furry nuff. These tyres have a little more love in them, then I'll whack a set of ADV 19"s on the bring the diameter back up. Unless of course I have an Ultima to distract me instead! HINT!
C'mon, do it!

Which is?

I think these are 275/35R18 rear.

275/40 req'd

or 295/35

NOT 275/35 or 295/30

Best to run 18" wheels, and challenge car wheels are half inch wider... which means better tyre fit/choice again.

Not a fan of 19" wheels... tyres too expensive and less air inside makes pressures unstable.
