OK... I am sick & tired of these crappy michelin pilots and the 2.2-2.4 60' times i'm getting, something has to be done!!! I know there are guys out there running nitto 315's and I just want to know if they rub the fenders bad? what did you do to fix it? I already have 1" wheel spacers..will these help keep me from rubbing? Thanks for any help...

I met a guy this weekend that was running 315/17 Nitto DR's on his 17 x 9 "R" Wheels and it looked like it fit pretty good. Didn't ask about having to remove the quads but I'll ask him this weekend and take some pic's. Might go that route if I don't have to modify anything.

Jose,
i too would be very interested to see what 315s look like on 17x9 cobra r rims - pics if you're able to take and post them would be terrific.

take care and thanks,
greg

I have 295/35/18's on my rear and the rear passenger side rubbed pretty bad when i jumped on it hard or turned hard.

But they are 18's and my car is dumped pretty good, you shouldnt have any probs and if you do its easy to fix.

By the way...I agree with you on the Michelin Pilot comment, they ****in suck, $360 a tire and they dont grab even a little bit. They are worthless on the street.. they did ok at the track tho

Yeah I understand. I just found it amusing the way it was phrased.

"these 'best tires in the world' sure suck"

If you want a radial that hooks, try the BFG KD's. Those things are great, and they are cheaper than pilots. A friend had a Vette he kept powersliding everywhere he went. Then he got some KDs. No more powerslides. Just mass traction. They leave black marks on the pavement when you accelerate hard (w/o any wheelspin).

Why not go with a 275/40/17 Nitto or BFG Drag radial and not worry about any hassles???

Disregard if you have a 10.5 in wheel width.
