I did call BBS. $8,800 vs $10,400 (wholesale price and before taxes)

Both are basically the same wheel in terms of the materials used and construction and weight.

At the rate he's going, Tony's car might end up looking like that! wink wink!

Looking forward to the finish product. This project has my juices flowing and ready to make a few panel changes.

710 = diameter (mm)? thats a big tire..

It's a big tire.... and it's "the" tire to run.

But the issue is not the tire height. It's gearing. Or it's effect on gearing.

I'm going to have to put in a 951 5th gear in my S2 box to mitigate the gearing changes on the top end. It will screw up my low end out of 3rd, but will allow me to run 3rd longer, which will have a benefit. bla bla

Anyway... take gearing into consideration if you decide to run the taller drive tires.

Don't the Cup cars run 710's in the rear but a smaller (680?) in the front for a bit of rake? I'd like to test fit a 710 just for future reference. I can imagine that instead of having to change gear sets which can be expensive, you can run different diameter tyres to achieve a similar benefit.
