    Or would going to a 265/35/20 be a better choice. I have Triumph's 20x10 on the fronts. appreciate the help.

    Depending on your offset, that may work real nice.

    Oh, I was reading that again, I bet Biz gave you enough room for those. We can do those on the 9.5 OEM wheels.

    What's the offset of your front wheels? I'm running 285/35s on the stock wheels up front with a 1" drop without any problems.

    I believe one member here has gone with 295-35-20 with 20x10 x 20 off-set wheels on all four! 285-35-20 should be a YES fitment for sure on the steers.

    And for "sometimes" track tires? Michelin PSS or ContiForceSport 5P's would be a reasonable choice, but NOT a hard core racing choice.

    Really appreciate all the feed back. This site has some great people on it. I am lucky that this car is just a weekend car. So going a little extreme with the set up is ok. The Sport cup 2 do not come in a 275/35/20 so it's go up to the 285 or go down to the 265. What would you guys do??

    I always try to stay as close to OEM diameter (28.6) size for the steers that I can find. Steers are always the challenge IF you wish to lower your ride? Drives can be beefed up depending on suspension clearances. -1% to + 3% on OD size should keep the putter happy! :cool:

    Bizmark is a GREAT guy!! Trust in his advice! He will insure you are set-up for the most amount of future tire sizes possible for your rims.

    Sorry for the delay, but 285/35 is definitely the way to go. I had the PSC2 tires in that size mounted up front on 10" wheels with a 15mm offset. I've since gone to 295/35 Pirelli Corsa as was mentioned above.

    What's that about plus or minus od for a happy computer?
    And is a 285/35 better than a comparable compound tire in 275/40?
    Is the small gain in width worth the loss in height?
    Or is going to a 285 simply due to a better tire option like the Michelen?

    Being aware of your + or - % from a OEM dia. is to NOT cause an ABS confusion with-out having to re-program your computer's OEM tire size. A -1% from a 28.66 (275-40-20) oem dia is approx. 28" overall dia. while a +3% is 29.5" overall dia. and may rub?

    IMHO ---- Michelin Pilot Super Sports hands down are the BEST street tire. Conti's DW's are a close second while still staying with-in OEM specs for a 106YXL rated tire. Nitto's 555G2 are 106W rated, so continued high speed runs over 168mph would NOT be a good idea.

    As to width gain? IMHO more rubber on the road is always better! Especially IF one goes with a square set-up for road courses! My next set will be 295-35-20's in MPSS or Conti's 5P with 20x10 with 20mm offset on all (4) unless I lower my ride and then 295's may NOT fit the steers?(full lock to Lock) under hard conditions.

    I currently run Conti DW's 275-40-20 (106Y XL) on the steers with 20x9.5 x 18mm. With Conti DW's 315-35-20 (110Y XL) on 20x11 x 21mm for the drives.

    If you are considering 285-35-20's ---- They may????? be OK (face thread support contact) on our 9.5" OEM rims, but for me I would NOT run any road course with less than 10" wide rim, even on a 285 tire.

    Here are charts to visualize oem to proposed sizes. Rim & Tire Size Calculator. Custom Offsets

    Great info Teo. I'm running Michelin Super Sports - 285/35 up front and 295/35 in back on OEM wheels. My car is lowered about 1.25" up front and 1.5" in back on the KW sleeve kit and I have no issues with rubbing. As mentioned, Michelin makes a very good street tire and I would highly recommend going as wide as your suspension setup and budget will allow.
