Default Please help - slick tyres. Diameter

hi guys,

I'm a guy from the other side of the world - Lithuania and this is my Mia





it's a 420 hp time attack miata. or time attack wannabe so far.


The problem is why i'm here that in my country there is no normal full-slick tyres dimensions for a little wheels like R15 or R16.

is there any possibility to fit 17" in there using 235-240 slick tyre? any suggests what should be use for 420hp powered Mia for the front and rear and how the hell to fit there??

I'm really rubbing a lot already with 225/45 16"

CSP Miata Build - Joefis Racing

This car uses a 17 inch Hoosier, but those might not be available on the other side of the pond.

Then use different brakes. You are limited to a 23" tall tire unless you want to cut the car to pieces, and there are no wide 23" tall tires in a diameter larger than 15".

is there any chance to get those in UK? it is more easy and quickly to get shipped from there.
