Thanks for the info on those Toyos. I guess I missed them because at the time I was shopping on tire rack and they don't carry Toyo. The RA1 and r888 are R comps I think. The Toyo R1Rs do look good maybe next time around I will get those. Thanks again

I'm using the RS3's as street tires, don't have many miles on them yet though so no idea how long they'll last. Given I only put maybe 5-6k a year on the car I'm guessing a year or two. I have a second set of 15x9s with NT-01s for when the car sees the track.

The other downside to running a staggared setup is that you can't rotate them front to rear. I'd go as wide as possible.

You don't need the fares for the 15x9 with a 225 just a roll and pull.

I disagree. I think he should keep them, buy 2" spacers, racelands, and some BE framerails. He should then proceed to slam the car to the ground, swap the turbo for ITBs, and never get an alignment so the fucked up camber makes the car look mad tyte JDM....Oh ****, wrong forum
