Getting a new set of wheels and tires for the track and for use when the roads get shitty in the winter. Want to keep my Razors nice.

 

Staggered looks great yes, but running the same size all around reduces understeer at the track and allows you to rotate the tires, allowing you to get the most life out of them.

 

Im looking to do either 275/35/19 all around, or 285/35/19 all around. Only thing is, I feel 285's in the front are a little much... Thoughts?

I have 275's all around, I've heard 285's tend to rub in front when cornering and turning hard. I know 285's in the front would rub on my brake cooling hoses.

What size rims are you going to use? I always thought that anything larger than 265s on the front would rub on the SGTs. If the rims are 20s, would that limit the size to smaller width tires due to the rubbing on the lowered suspension?

 

I was thinking of using 18 x 9.5 - can 275s fit on those on all 4 corners?

What rims are those? They look like newer Mustang rims, but I can't tell for sure. They look great.

Steeda Ultra lights - (now discountinued) falsely named since they still weigh in at 27lbs each- once used as track wheels but since I upgarded to a 19lb D-force the Steeda's are my daily street wheel.
