I "know" it's not ideal but I have 1 x 1/2 used set and 1 x new set of Dunlop Direzza semi slicks for this seasons racing setup on 7" rims.
I am about to buy a set of 6UL's from 949 and really want 9" (as that is what you FAST guys say is the bees knees).
Problem is I can't afford to restock with tyres until I have used these 205x50x15 sets up.
Can I squeeze the 205 on to the 9" rim and then just start using the 225 or is this a no go....in which case I will just get the 8".
The 205 tyres are MASSIVELY cheaper compared to the 225 down here, nearly 1.5 x again the cost...).
So another question is, is the performance from 8" and 205 to 9"with 225 significant (1 sec + is significant to me...at this point) i.e enough to justify the ongoing running cost? (I want to "feature" in this class)
I am a little nervous on fitment but I have read and (briefly) emailed Emilio that they should fit a 1990 with roll guards and coilovers (Koni race).
Suggestions, experience and thoughts welcomed.
I just want to commit and move on now!
