^total ******* hilarity on the babel translation: "If you send a another message thus to me I am going to kill your dogs, and to do that commas its juevos, crude. Then, after showing its wife as she is to feel as woman by first you see in its life I am going to use that same keyboard whereupon these angering to me to strike your brains until a squid, and taking what it is of your skull. She is your I complete warning *******."

"Commas it juevos, crude." And then a couple of bastardized neo-hustler-isms. Every Friday it should be like this. I knew it would be better ******* with subscribers than newbs on a Friday hate day, it's like priapism, but in a good way.

You come up here this year and I'll do my best to "meat" you there. Not only will I show you how not to turn in early in turn 1, but I will take you sexually in the boot when the day is done.

You're all a bunch of putos!!


Ok, so tire diameter for 225/45 seems to hang at ~22.8" and 225/50 at 23.9" - 24". The Falken 912 that I looked at are 23.9" in diameter, is it plausibel to have them in by bulling the fenders.

Discuss. Try to keep it on topic ********

Increase ride height, pull the **** out the fenders, remove inner fender plastic crap, and have a car that looks goofy as hell.

Here's a side profile with 225/45s on the front and 225/50s on the back. This is on 8s though, on the 9s the 225/50s were pretty stretched. Wish I had some pictures of how it looked.

Ah, so yo had access to a bathtub w/ an outboard motor, then.

(I kid. My father came over on a proper boat with places for people to sit. Despite having a medical degree, he then proceeded to sleep in a public park for some period of time before landing a job as an elevator operator.)

the ra1's were awesome. definately more stick than RA1's, but similar wear and breakaway characteristics. they were very easy to drive at the limit. and i bought them used (they are expensive new) and honestly, i couldn't see any wear after i did 3-4 trackdays and 1 auto-x. i ended up selling them because i bought some new wheels and they wouldn't fit. i wish they made 225/45/15's in those. i would buy a set for sure. i think they are faster and wear longer than nt01's.

Oh reeeeeeaaly? Too bad they do not offer it in a 245 (or larger) in 15". There is more grooving so it would probably be a better race/street(rain) dual-use tire than the NT01.

i was talking about the BFG R1 (only has 2 grooves) no need to shave. never drove them in the rain though. definately not a street tire though.

the toyo RA1 on the other was awesome in the rain. i did a couple wet trackdays on them and they were fast. the grooves are only necessary for deep standing water, most of the time it's just wet pavement and for that it's the tread compound that dictates how good the tire is. i drove both the NT01 and RA1 in the wet, worn down to where they only had the 2 grooves and i was hauling ***. they still needed to warm up though. sorry for the thread jack.
