S/o/, what kind of aftermarket wheels do you have?
Just how much meat are you running?
If you're still on stockers, post only if wheels are modified/painted/etc or tire sizes notably differ from stock.
C5 Corvette Z06
I now have NITTO NT555's in the rear which are terrible in the rain (summer tire). Zero traction under any hard acceleration. But they perform great otherwise.
The fronts I not-so-recently put on NITTO Motivo's. Great cost and great performance. They've performed flawlessly in wet weather so far. The widest they go are 275's unfortunately.
Any pics of your C4?
Im get TE37s for my STi and there's nothing you can do to stop me

Going to slap bridgestone eagers on here when the time comes
i've run different tires front and rear on street cars and race cars all the time. sometimes on a race car running the grippiest tire for the class up front and a lesser tire on the rear can work well for both handling setup and cost. on some rear driver cars that's the only option too. running a drag radial out back and a front runner up front. don't perpetuate a myth with no basis.
Rays and Doonlaps in the summer
Because I'm not a bitch
I dont really know anything about tires to be honest my family.But i currently have Goodyear Eagle sport all seasons with the stock size of 235/45-17
How do i stop my car from spinning its tires in 5th gear on the highway
Should i ditch the all seasons and get summer tires?(I live in Georgia so we dont really have a harsh winter) or should i get more meat
>procomp 15x8 d windows

Performs great in the dirt, great on wet and dry pavement. Have yet to do any snow driving yet because Arizona. But I'm moving to Alaska in 3 weeks so I'll know soon enough.
Advan AVS Model 6 wheels that were on my Skyline when I bought it. 17x8 and 17x9 apparently with shitty 235/45 tyres all around.
Mammoth OffRoad "8" 17x9
BFG A/T KO2 285/70r17
I didn't want 35s
What kind of rims should I get for my mustang, it's already lowered. Would staggered tires be a good choice?
Are those really 40s? Look anemic on that truck
Sold my Equip 03s, and now I can't find a set of wheels I want to buy. Budget for the wheels themselves is around $1,500, specs I want is 15x8 et15. What should I get? No fake wheels or Advanti Storm, 6UL, Konig Dial In, etc.
Too bad car is ded
bullitt is the best looking s197 hands down.
Eagle alloy 212's, 17x8 up front and 17x10 in the rears. I'm running some 275/40/17R's in the back
finally sold the Equip 01s? how much did you end up selling them for?
and my vote is for Longchamps
Ended up selling them for $900 to some guy who only wanted the set for 2 of them. He drove 4hr from NY to come pick them up. Said he had a 93 Starlet and he was going to have 2 TE37s on one side, and 2 Equip 03s on the other.
I'd like Longchamps, but they're hard to find in 15's. Found a set of EX-C Fins I want, but I'd need to have them filled and redrilled, so they would be around $1,800 after shipping. A bit more than I want to spend, and they're not even the specs I want.
Need some help, how fucked are these tires?
They are Michelin pilot sports, guy said fronts were too big and rubbed. One has chunks missing out of tread, the other is just rubbed. This is the chunky one.
>$150 for 2x 245/35/19 @ 70% tread and 2x 275x30x19 @ 90% tread
Where my 3 piece forged br/o/s at?
17x9.5 front with 275/40
17x11 rear with 315/35
I did, in that post, and I got them off Yahoo auctions for like $1600 USD without tires.
Looking for some advice here, stock wheel size on the fiesta is 17x7 with a 205/40/17 tire.
I think want to go smaller and wider, but the sizes don't really exist for my bolt patteen.
So I've been debating between 17X7, 16X7, or 15x8.
16x8 simply doesn't exist in 4x108.
Application will be a few autox days, a run down the tail of the Dragon, and maybe a hpde day or track night if I can.
Anyway, if it were you what would you do?
17x8 is also an option.
Also debating between Sparco Assetto Gara's or Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2's.
Right on, just don't go making it your only car and keep a nest egg of about $5K for miscellaneous shit that will go wrong or need preventative fixes.
>It is an r32 right
1/96 to 6/98 R33s with dual airbags can be imported and converted to OBDII and a have a bunch of other safety shit installed, but it's not even remotely worth the money.
The only legal R34s are the ones that were grandfathered in after Motorex fucked everything up, and there are only like 14 of them.
That's the short version. Any other Skyline in the US that is not one of those^ and is not over 25 is in the country illegally. Period.
They used to be, but the owner of Motorex got balls deep into debt from giving maid cafe hostesses free cars and such, fell behind on the due dates, released the cars without the proper modifications, and prompted government agencies to cover their asses and just flat out destroy the cars and banned their imports.
1. The car must be 25 years or older to the month of manufacture. This means that a R32 built in September of 1989 will be legal in September of 2014.
2. The car must be in its original, unmodified condition at the time of importation to be legal under the EPA's standards. See the block labeled "Code E" on this importation form for the source
The only Skylines that are currently legal to import are GTS & GT-R models manufactured between January 1, 1996 and June 30, 1998
and only through a Registered Importer with modifications to the car
done by the RI to meet NHTSA standards. Currently the only RI that has the tech to do these modifications is JK Technologies (they have the only equipment and technology to install an OBDII system into a R33)
There are two models of Skylines that are currently eligible to import under the show and display law
1990 Nismo R32 GT-R
1999 R34 GT-R V-SPEC Early Model Limited Edition
Both of these are very hard to find cars, and if you are lucky enough to find and import one, you are limited to 2,500 miles of use annually
