Can you comment on this. Do you rub on full turn? (on shock , on radius rod or upper body area). From my knowledge I always thought a 225 would rub on the fender and rub when doing a full turn. And having an 8" wide wheel would definitely run on a full turn. Your thoughts?
the 15x7 with a 225 are +35
the 15x8 are +25

Specification | Sidewall | Radius | Diameter | Circumference | Revs/Mile | Difference
195/60-15 | 4.6in | 12.1in | 24.2in | 76.1in | 833 | 0.0%
225/45-15 | 4.0in | 11.5in | 23.0in | 72.2in | 878 |-5.1%


^this may have something to do with why it fits as well as it does. I am running a slightly smaller diameter than stock tire. And its possible many guys say 225s rub because theyre running 17s or something and using a 26" tall tire.

Does that make sense? Caffeine hasn't kicked in yet today.

love the car man. The track video looks like so much fun. Its crazy the weight you have with rollcage and everything. What front brake/spindle setup are you using? looks great.

Thanks man. It really is the most fun I have in life. But its stock knuckles, ROH conversion with the 9899tl hub
Then fast brakes machined the rotor hat to fit, used their supplier for rotors, FastBrakes caliper bracket and a wilwood superlite 6r. It is very tight, I had to move the wheel weights further in on the rim or they would hit the caliper.

Love the racing vids. It is always entertaining to watch this car working over the more typical race modified Hondas.

Yes, that makes sense. Forgot to ask about the offset of these. I've been running a 40 offset max.
