What I mean is the stock 18" bullits are like running on Water when I hit it.
I am thinking 20", 19" or another set of 18"'s with wider tires. Staggered of coarse.
I just don not want to rub.


OH yeah. I am Whipple HO.'ed 3.55 geared,spyder shafted and 5 speed.

i'd get an 18x10 rim with at least a 315 on it. just make sure you get the right backspacing so it doesn't rub. as 05KB said the 05+ come rolled from the factory. thats a very nice thing for us not to have to deal with.

Each tire manufacturer has specs to indicate the rim widths for the tire and a specific preferred width. Most tire companies will not recommend more than a 255 on the 8.5 rims

those are decent, but they are kinda small. I would try and find bigger if i were you. either a 295/30... or a 285/35.
Yeah, I did notice the overall dimension was like 26.7 in. The book I was looking at didn't really list a lot of other sizes I could go with. Guess I'll go back to them and try to see if they can get me either of those other sizes.

Thanks.

i have 295's on my 9.5 inch rim. i'd go wider for a 10 inch rim, but maybe it's different for 20's???
