Is that the temporary fix for the AT? Did u guys identify the problem yet? Is it the tq converter?

Just enough to fit about 285 in the back and 265 in the front with a crazy enough offset to fit 380mm brakes. I could fit wider wheels with a less crazy offset, but I want to be able to fit monstrous brakes.

Nice, finally someone ready to throw on some real rubber although I think you can go farther, some guys already have 285 out back without custom work. The narrow tires were the Achilles heel of all these single turbo cars, not enough rubber out back.

The back isn't the problem. If I wanted to go super-staggered I could, but that would kill the driveability of the car. Getting the front wide enough to match the back is the real problem, especially if you want big brakes. If I were just drag racing, I would go for it.

CaptainInsano, what size tires are you hoping to run in the back with those flares? 315's?

I'd need new wheels for that. It might be possible to go that wide on these fenders, but I need to figure out how to make the front tires wide enough first. We'll see.

What'd they do with the rear bumper cover to match the flared fender?

And you can do the M3 front end stuff/fenders in the front so that you can do 275/315 if you can fit the 315's out back.

CaptainInsano, I believe there is a company in California who makes M3-style fenders in ABS that don't have the grill, and bolt onto the 335 (no need for a hood or bumper). Probably a bit late to bring up at this point, but I figured I'd mention. Because as it has been said before, doing a 285 out back on stock fenders is definitely doable, it's the front that becomes a challenge...ask me how I know, I'm trying for 245/275 PSS (more like 255/285 in other brands) with no rubbing, no modifications to the front fenders (yes, I am rolled out back).
