    I don't think there's much beyond 225 width in a 15 unless you get into like R888's and the like only. Charlie is running 245/40R15 in whatever the sticky Nankang offering is, and I think there are a few options but not like 225. It's also 5% undersize if that matters to you.

    Edit: I also don't know how the math works out between a standard diameter 225/50R15 and a wider but 5% undersize 245/40R15.
    Can't be far off, and the undersize is probably nicer for a NA car, but I don't think the contact patch is larger on the 245

        Yep. Just posted in the thread on this. At least they won't mention how rare or 1 of xxx anything is, so it'll be better than looking at BaT.

          Suckers. I own a rare 1 of 1 e30. It's the only lachssilber e30 Reichart12 has ever owned... so 1 of 1 = very rare. Worth billions of McDonald's fries.

            You just stumbled on to how to make your fortune, coat cars with the same stuff in McD fries, since we know they don't really degrade over time.

              Oh man, if only I could. I'm not even sure if Rustoleum or Por-15 could save my vehicles from turning into earth dust again.

                they used to fill car's with oil and it dripped out the seams apparently. It was like a service in the 70's on the east coast.

                  We run 225 45 15 BFG Rival on the race cars. The Kids car is 2670 with me in it and 45min of fuel missing (-30lb from Spec) and they are sticky enough to match Spec E30 lap times at Sebring, and 205 50 15 Toyo RR's are the Spec-legal tire. The #13 hasn't been weighed yet, but has a stock motor and same tire, it was about 2 sec off the Kids car this weekend.

                  We have been through the DZII, Azenis, Maxxis etc, by far the stickiest has been the BFG's, and they seem to last just as long as the others (Maxxis were sticky, but wore like it). We were going to go to a 245 40, but the rules state we have to take points for fender flares, and the tire must be covered from 10 o'clock to 2 o'clock - 225's fit neatly under pulled quarters.

                  BTW, the Kids car got punted this weekend - spun us out and backed into a wall at ~110mph...

                  Driver is good and we are taking the car to my buddies frame machine (hopefully after work today if the wind isn't too bad). Rough weekend, and then came home to tropical storm conditions. :/

                          So... since this annoying spammer hits up 6+ WTB ads every night causing me a bunch of work each morning, can you R3V detectives send some spam his way since he has shared a phone number in addition to his email?

                            It's a TextNow number, so the best we can do is autodial it forever, but the scumbag will just switch numbers.

                            I think our time would be better spent PMing James so we can have a regularly active mod who can ban scammers. Or maybe no one cares and r3v is dead.

                              James is quite busy, I had his attention for a minute and thought I was going to get Ban-powers, but the lines gone quiet again. I will message him again.
