Aggressive tires.

Today i pulled the trigger on some toyo r888's. I have stock suspension. with 18x8.5 front and 18x9.5 rear currently running 255/35 front and 285/30 rear. This car has so much grip now its incredible. i will get some pictures tomorrow but as of now no rub or scraping. and this is without rolled or pulled fenders...

Your on stock suspension bud. You could fit a ton under under. Try to lower it properly like it should be and not ride 4x4. Tell me how they are after that.

"Try to lower it properly like it should be?" Since when did lowering your car become objective?

Definitely agree. Sometimes people get a thrill out of being low or trying to see how closely they can come to almost shredding tires on the fenders. It can look good, but not a huge deal.

Agreed. To each his own. It's not all about being "slammed" with "poke."

Will, props for choosing function over form, and thanks for informing the community that those aggressive tire sizes will fit well.

Good to know. I don't plan on lowering my E91 and want to get as much meat in my wheel wells as possible.

What offset are the wheels?? I'm curious as to if I can run them on my et20 front and et22 rears. Tired of having the stretch look.

Fronts are 35 rear are 33 i believe.. And higher in the front and you will rub strut and any lower and you will destroy fender. In the back i think you may be able to fit wider thats my next project trying to fit a 295 or 305 in the back with the room left to the strut and like maybe 5 mm it can move out

Nice! 245 and 285 must be giving you a lot of grip!

And I'm with you in terms of function over form. I will say that I'm lowered right now but only to remove the wheel gap. Im not to the point of insane camber and stretch and poke, I'm actually going to raise my car up a tiny bit when I put the new PSS tires on next spring. I don't understand how some ppl will get a 335 and make it FBO and make a lot
Of power and then lower it so much it rubs and scrapes everywhere, what's the point of that? Not like you can go fast now :S

He has a ton of grip because of the R-triple-8's. Beast tires.

PSS's will last a lot longer but have a lot less grip. r888's are track tires basically

How much wider are the PSS compared to other summer/all-season tires? Is it safe to say that a PSS 245 is more like a DWS 255, etc.? Smaller/bigger than +10mm?

I'm not an expert, but I was surprised and happy to hear about the large tire sizes fitting!

what are the specs on your wheels? Not really looking to lower my ride but looking for known good wide tire fitments in the front. Really looking to go to a square setup, was thinking 245s were the max but if you fit 255s...?

how far out do the tires stick out past the wheel? I am running 245 and 275 and the tire is pretty square with the wheel (same size wheels).
