I was reading the newest issue of SCC (with the USCC cars) and noticed that the HASport CRX has 255 XX17's on his car. Wtf?! The widest tire I have been able to run is 205. (And I mean street tires to, not giant slicks that you rasie the entire front of your car for and cant turn the wheel more than a half turn without rubbing.) What size tire do you use on your FWD car? I am thinking maybe with my new coilovers (that dont have massive spring perches) and some wheelspacers, I might be able to get 225's on there, or bigger hopefully...

search the autocross/road race forum under my screen name for something like "official wide tire thread". You'll find all the info you are looking for their.

Post #8 has a link to that thread... a good read for anyone that's looking to go larger than a 205 width tire :)

If you google "Spec Miata Wheel" you can find 30 offset 4x100 15 inchers pretty easily. Thanks for Spec Miata!

Falken Hanabis are available in 17x9 (Wow!) with a 20mm offset. I totally want someone to guinea pig those and try for 245s.

I'm probably going with the 225/50 RS2s next time around, supposedly the 225/50 615s are coming out this fall.
