Pushing for it. Anyone else who would like to see such a tire exist, go email all the manufacturers currently making fast 200tw tires. More voices helps. I'd recommend "Here is why you should make this" rather than "Hi are guys going to make this?"

If this is real, it definitely adds an incentive for me to go with 15x10 wheels instead of 15x9.

I'm seeing chatter from Miata Parts Source on Facebook about a 275 and 295 200tw street tires to be released later this year. Any truth to that?

He's saying federal's......meh we'll see. Hopefully it justifies some real 200tw tires.

Got a response from Maxxis:




We are glad to hear you are loving the 245/40R15 VR-1! Thanks for the support. What type of motorsports are you using them for? Track days or competition?

We have been asked to make a 275/35R15 in the past for Miata racing and are continuing to investigate the possibility of making this size. Are you also requesting this size for Miata racing or do you have an other use for the tire? Any information you can share with us would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your request.

Robert

I also emailed maxxis to try to get them to make them. Im sure if we got a bunch of people here to send emails it would happen.

Send some emails people!

If any mods see this, is there any chance we could mention this thread in the racing section briefly? The wheels and tires section is pretty slow and I think a lot of people that may be interested won't see it.

We are talking about a street tire, not a race tire. This is the appropriate section.

I don't need a 275 tire at this point in time but hopefully this will go through. If it does surely others will follow suite.

A nice non-slick way to put 400#tq to concrete is always welcome. Would make mods for 15x10s (maybe 11s?) if I could get street tires for them.

IOW, a 275/35 VR-1 overlaps with smaller Hoosiers in terms of $/speed. It's not practical however, to run a full slick on the street as a daily for most drivers. Thus the need for the biggest damn street tire evar.
I've thought of this post several times over the past year or so and would really like to see Maxxis make both tires in this size. Overlapping with smaller Hoosier grip or not, I feel like a 275 RC1 would probably be a great tire for a 100TW class like Limited GTA. I remember Thruxton Booth had to run tall 17's on his Civic because they don't make a wide enough 15" RC1 for him. Ryan's Hyper Miata might could benefit from something like that as well (if only someone would make a 275 super 200 like a Rival S). That kind of tire might also make an STU MSM a bit more competitive. Not holding my breath on anyone but Maxxis taking the plunge on that for a while, though.
