Trackspeed fender/tire/15x10 kit in the works? Complete with "cut here" template and fancy 3M sticky tape. Prepainted in your choice of 14 dazzling colors?

The 245/580R15 Hoosier on a 15x10 wheel is 0.8lbs lighter than a 225/45R15 NT-01 on a 15x9 wheel, too.
Make sure not to post pics or anything. TSE sucks.

So, if your suspension moves 1/4 inch it rubs?

Pretty much. +30mm fenders are on the way for all 4 corners.

I got my wheels today and they are real purdy. I'm not used to seeing 6uls that aren't caked in brake dust. It's a little disappointing to hear that pulling the stock NA fenders isn't going to work. Not much of a fan of the various body kits and flares, but I'll probably give in after seeing what everyone else does. Getting the 245s on 9s to fit under stock fenders is probably not worth the effort with the 10s sitting around to replace them.

Me neither. I can't stand flares. I'm going to try to make the Autokonexion fenders look as factory as possible.

The Autokonexion 30mm fenders and 30mm overlay rear quarters maintain the factory look. When I spoke to Mike Burlas the owner/designer and he said that's what he was after. I think you guys will be quite happy with the look. http://www.autokonexion.com/product_...vkt9cm80sc2h91

The wide-body kit is something else all together. I liked most of it except the rear quarters. I bought the 30mm overlay quarters and blended them into the rockers of the wide-body kit for a much better look.

The wide-body kit does benefit from better aero because the front bumper and rocker panels direct air away from the front of the tires. Most of you guys have already addressed the front aero as part of the splitter.

if you guys are worried about the look of flares, but why not just cut the fenders and leave it alone? I am not sure how that would affect you guys on track, I do that with my autox car.

Also just got my wheels today, omg they are nice. They weighed 13.6 on my scale at work(no idea last time it was calibrated). For the record that is a whole pound less than two of my spinwerks and 1.5 pound less on the other two(dont ask).

Is getting the replacement 30mm fenders for the front and extreme pulling at the rears an option? I don't have a tire on the 15x10s yet to check the fitment.

With NA rear spindles, probably. I ALMOST got mine to fit in the back by cutting the inner liner away from the outer fender, then using a bottle jack to pull and stretch the outer fender until the quarter buckled slightly. They rub at full bump, not sure if it would work on track.

Hope you aren't fond of the paint in the rear - it won't survive the pull job required to fit them.
