    I know there are a million threads on rims, tires, and everything else under the sun. Search function sucks when im just using my phone, but my question for the tire gurus out there is will 305s fit on the stock rim. I wont be using these for racing as i already have a dedicated rim and tire for the track. Just need some more meat on back when rolling around town.

    You don't want drag radials on all 4 corners. The car will not handle well in turns. Discount tire had the best prices that I could find.

    Huggytree has been a good/solid resource on the 305's to me. I want to upgrade as well to 305's, as I've heard they fit just fine and don't extend from the fender wells in any unusual manner. For me, I'm waiting for a non Drag Radial 305 much like my Pirelli Summer Tires. Many of the DR's have top speed restrictions (lower speed rating).
    I'm hoping the Nitto 555 G2's come in a 305 that fits our wheels soon.

    I do agree with the above post. Just go with the 305's on the rear and save the old ones to transfer to the front when needed.

    They fit just fine...even lowered... stay away from the Nitto.. junk. I would stay with the stock tire before I bought Nittos. 20151007_161136.jpg

    The Nittos just need so much heat to hook that they won't and don't work all that well on the street either...

    They DO work well on a VERY well prepped track when you put a lot of heat into them.
