Default Picture request: 15x10 6UL w 245/40-15 RS4 on NA

Anyone got pictures of 15x10 6UL with 245/40-15 on an NA without fender flares, just a pull and roll? I know this won't "fit" but the definition of fit is different for everyone. Dedicated track/autocross car.

I've searched so much but most pictures are NB or NA with flares. I've got a great deal on this setup, but take would prefer not to cut the body to fit flares.

4.25" pinch front, 4.75" pinch rear. -3*F/-2*R
I should add, this rubbed constantly under any kind of load and was extremely tiresome. Also, V720 are a terrible tire.

Your alignment isn't that different than mine, I'll double check my pinch height. Rubbing under load is what I'm concerned about. Sounds like I'll need to do flares.

If you want it to "work" like a stance car, no flares.

You want it to work like a miata, you need flares.

Also, ride height has very little to do with tire clearance if you're actually loading up the car, it makes little difference, as Savington has pointed out before.

I think the not fitting on an NA thing is a bit overblown.

15x10 6UL Charcoal for Miata, 15x10

I've seen this car in person at MATG (Brad something iirc). Fenders were pulled a little but they weren't that extreme past a hard roll. I'm pretty sure he was on 245 RS4's (might have been on VR1's still).

Brad is on VR1s again currently because the RS4s were backordered and he needed tires asap for the tents & touge event in June.

I am sure you could do it. I am going to try whenever I get them in the future. But a 15x8 +0 and 245 on 15x10 have the same effective poke of tire and stretch and that's what I have experience with. I could have played with it more probably, Only had that car a couple months.
