From what I recall, 275 is the max width you can fit on a stock bodied car in the front.

it will be 2-3" wider or whatever is needed to fit it, turning and such is the problem I can forse, modding fenderwheel wells and such is allowed, just not tubular front.

question is where it will rub, wheels are built to spec, so i can decide offsett.

Car handles really well, especially on higher speed tracks.

The key to making the spread from front to rear on the tire/wheel sizes work is in the spring and sway bar settings.

I run a relatively soft 550lb spring in the front and 750lb spring in the rear. This setup allows the rear to slip more and rotate better with no pushing (understeer) of the smaller fronts. The rear weltmeister bar is set soft and the front is a bit stiffer. This way I can dial in more rear sway bar if the front starts to go. Push is slow, loose is scary but fast!


Works for me.

Neal, you and Chris should meet up for a east west GTG for two super fast 951 track cars

Chris, feel free to post some updated pics, can't wait to see an even faster car at the track.

IIRC This car was actually an ex-Turbo Cup that had been wrecked and rebuilt. But I might be mistaken on that fact, it's been a few years since I talked to the owner.

Those Wiggins IC piping clamps are no joke on that car. We used a set of them on our turbo FSAE car. Those suckers cost $80-100 each.

295/335 on a widebody car. Maybe 305/335 I cant quite recall.
275/305 on a "stock" bodied car that had been worked to fit them.
