I know what I'm doing if I ever bend-up a quarter-panel.

Word. I've always been paranoid about screwing up a rear qp due to the amount of work required to fix it but that might be a good excuse to get these over fenders.

And 15x10 6uls. And new tires. And the front fenders.

I don't remember if I have posted these here before. If I have I'm sorry for the double post. Here are the 275's on 15x10's and the "larger" bolt on flares.

Wish you weren't all the way on the left coast. I would love to run against you sometime. Love the looks of your car.

Jboogie I try to hit most of the events within a couple hours of Chattanooga. I run most of the TRSCCA, ETRSCCA, CRSCCA and TVSCCA events. And the plan this year is to run all the tours and pros within a 12-14 hour tow from Chattanooga.

Sounds good, I'm focusing more on track stuff this year than autox but, i'm sure i'll run into you at an event somewhere.

Autox season just started up here so I finally got a chance to use my new 15x10 6UL's and 23x10.5x15 Avon bias-ply slicks.





We've run on 13" Hoosier cantilevers up until this year, but rules changed so we're now on the bigger tire/wheel setup. Worked pretty well, but I've got still got some adjusting to do both in setup and driving style.

Those tires look ridiculously wide on that red car.

Trying to recap now that I will be in the market for wheels after my 205s are used up.

NA fitment:
The poor man's fix is extremely large fender flares, but then the 15x10s will fit. Baller fix is a widebody fender kit? The downside/caveat for a person that still drives to the track is that only slicks come in a usable size.

This sound right or were there other modifications I missed? I know 5mm spacers and NB knuckles were thrown around, but I thought the large fender flares fixed everything.

Looks like I'm a 15x9 man :(

245/580-R15 Hoosier slicks
15x10 on left, 15x9 on right (both 6ULs)



Look at the sidewalls. Look at the tread profiles.

I am installing the requisite fender flares this weekend.

Looks like Hoosier added a R75 compound for extra stick in the 245/580/15 size.

I have run the R80 compound. Crazy grip through the first 5 heat cycles. Slight drop off after that. I corded them at 8 HC's from improper setup/care so no further info.

Friends that run the R100 compound claim consistent grip from sticker to cords. They are getting 18+HC's on a 2,600+lb mustang with proper rotation etc. I expect the Miata's to get 20+HC's.

I justify the expense of the stickies by the savings on fuel (E85), brakes and maintenance over my previous track car.

Thanks for the heat cycling info. I could live with 20 HCs as long as they do not fall off too much. I usually use NT-01s for my first session of the day (TT) when I am warming up. So 20 HCs, at 2-3 HCs a day, 4-6 a weekend, could last 4-5 weekends. I can live with that especially if I manage to win 1 or 2 tires.
