If anyone was curious to see how they'd look. Sidewalls look a bit small in the rears. Track testing @ Buttonwillow with revalved stock shocks and prototype sleeve kit this Friday.
yes pics please! I should be getting these tires in the exact same size today.Any chance you have a pic of the whole car with them mounted? Various angles?
Also did you happen to measure the change in ground clearance with the switch from OEM to these? I've bottomed out on some smaller diameter wheels/tires I borrowed at the track one time...
Did you have Bilstein in California revalve your stock shocks? Can you please provide more details?Track testing @ Buttonwillow with revalved stock shocks and prototype sleeve kit this Friday.
The car actually performed fine at the limit and didn't move around. I ran into some "skipping" issues, but that's probably due to the shocks needing more adjustment. When the tires start to howl, it was just a gradual release of grip if I continued to push further. Pretty predictable and it inspired some of the most confidence I've had in the car thus far on that track (I'm still a noob) and set my best time of the day.The 285 results in a shorter tire and skinny sidewall. In theory, this will offer less grip than a 35 series tire. Did the car move around a lot at the limit? When the tire starts to howl, what is the car's behavior? We've run the 295/35/20 squares on 10/11 width wheels and work incredibly well with tons of grip and compliance.
I am interested in your freed back because this tire width is better suited for the stock wheel.
They could be as there are 2 tires in that size, difference in tread depth, tread width and weight only
