275/35/15's rubbed a lot less but still rubs. Need 5mm spacers with the 949 15X10 wheels to keep from rubbing the inside tire wall above the shock top in the rear and on the shock top in the front.

225/50/15 kumho V710 = 23.7”
275/35/15 Hoosier A6 = 23”

V710 has tread? Mine were almost to cords when finally lowered, maybe that's why? Or maybe my lack of driving skills.

They have tread material not really a tread pattern.

The amount of suspension travel you use has a lot to do with how much cornering grip you are extracting from the car.

i don't know about 215/40R17, thats probably an NC fitment if anything.

I don't get it. why use a tire if you don't use it fully? Some punctuation would help btw.

It wouldn't really matter on a street car. Look at all the people slamming their cars, that's not founctional on the track either.
With big tyres, instead of dragging frame on the ground, you'll be dragging tyre in the wheel well .
If you want to use these 6UL's on the street, a bit of ''unfunctionality" is unavoidable I guess.

sure it doesn't apply for you, no one said don't run them, or that its impossible, we just said fitment is not good.

For him, he is talking about track/autocross. I don't see the point of running 225/50 and taking it easy/easier so you don't rub, when a 225/45 won't.

To each their own!

For the record, 225/50-15s look like BFG Mud Terrains on a Miata. They're almost full on Co-op brand tractor tires.

Damn that's a good looking wheel:

The stretch is pushing it, but I'm curious how this combo would work/look on stock fenders.

I think you would need a pretty severe pull, and enough camber to ruin those nice tyres. Then again tose are 205, you can get that size in not so nice tyres :P.
As for 225/50 looking like tractor tyres. I think they can look good if executed correcly.



I'd Imagine flares with 225/50 or 235/50 on 6UL's looking badass if used only on the rears.
I may be in a small crowd with this, but I think forward rake is awesome :P.

Didn't realize those are 205s. I was assuming they were 225s. I'd like to see 225s on the 10s for that matter.

That would only really work with R888's though. R1R's and RS3's aren't nearly that wide.

those ARE 225s, it says it on the tire in the picture in faded blue letters. Although I guess maybe not, he says they are 205s.

Considering that the blue number is actually 226, the ówner of the tyres claims they're 205's,the fact that a few pages back the same tyres are show with the stickers which clearly say 205/50/15 ánd the amount of stretch, I can say with a reasonable amoun of certainty that they're 205's .

Huh, when was this thread moved to CR.net?

In for pics of these things mounted with non-gay (ok less gay) tires on vehicles with actual uses beyond being pretty and impressing all the boys in the street. Didn't Sav rattlecan those fenders black yet?

Hah. I won't have them painted for at least a couple of months. Theseus is on hiatus for a while so we can get our turbo kits released on schedule and get the Red Rental prepared for NASA enduros next year. Once our kits are close to completion I will have some time to get the new turbo setup in place, get the fenders fully installed/painted, etc.

the 205 on that 10 inch looks less stretched than my 205 all season on a 9 inch.

thinking about getting that meaty *** tire for my 9 inch.

Not the greatest pic, but after hours of messing with the fiberglass the front is mostly together with the 15x10s. This is the first and hopefully last time I work with this stuff. Now for more zipties, brake ducting hose, radiator ducting, and splitter fitment.
