I can feel the difference with the lower profile tires, more stiff you feel everything on the road. I prefer the feel of the 16s. Mine is an OB, with nearly no options, so its a light car. Its different on an S4

I just put Carerra IIIs (18x8 and 18x10) on my '81 auto. I chose Conti Sport Contact 225/40/18 on front and 265/40/18 on back. Mine had the competition package 16x7 inch wheels on it, so there were spacers on the back that, if not removed, will cause rubbing. So remove those, trim down your lug nuts, and the wheels and tires fit absolutely perfectly. Handling is superb, although as noted it is a stiffer ride. You really do feel more of the road.

Question




Time for new tires, I finally wore out my old ones.

I have the one shown about they are the lightweight 50mm offset so limited to width.

Most have 225/40, has anyone tried a 235/35? I have not rolled the fender, wondering how much more room do you get without cracking the paint?

Will be getting a new alignment with the new tires, how much does changing the camber effect the clearance on the fender? (last time I had it done, I did a mod some one here suggested and the caster to make it feel more nimble, which it did, but once I added the 18" tires, to nimble, hard to drive on the ruts on the highway, so will be changing it)

And for the rears, 265, but I like the look of the bigger the better (not tracking the car) some have put 285 on the 10" rim. Do I HAVE to put a rear spacer, or is that just to make it look better?

For a street car, the factory alignment specs are best, stick to them.

One'll never be able to out-drive their settings on the street.

III's are great!. No Mods, easy to clean, and allow for a range of tire sizes. I run Mich. Pilot Sports, 275 35 18 rear (10) 235 75 18 (8) front. Better ride and warranty than wider tire.

The BUFF rides on Mich specials, 56 x 16 @ 240 psi...


928's rule the ground, B's rule everything else!

Default Cup III's

Thanks, both me & dad USMC, this is a recent pic from my son on a recent NATO deployment. The Brits camp out at the airfield and really love the B 52's. They take some great photos and share them with the crews. The roads there made him really appreciate ours here in the USA! ( Not to mention driving on the wrong side and the numerous suicidal roundabouts so prevalent there)
