Anyway, I suspect you'll never get a 9" On the front of our cars anyway as it takes careful fitment for a 225 on 8" wheels.
What is the limiting factor for the front fitment? Why is it not possible to fit a 245 or even 255 on stock suspension and body work? Here's a thread showing 245 fronts with stock body work:
Also it is said on page 1 of this thread:
So effectively a 15x8 +5 front wheel with 225/45/r15 tire?
With that low of an offset, we're giving up inside tire clearance, no? If the above fits, why not the 245/40R15 Hoosier A7 with around a +15 offset?
Here are a couple of size/combos I am curious about--I am in no way endorsing these, more like requesting feedback. The first is probably too aggressive for stock bodywork, but I was inspired by ///MD's thread that I linked to above. I wonder if I could fit this with a stock LSS?
Front: Hoosier A7 245/40R15, possibly on 949racing.com 15x9et36 6UL wheels (probably with spacers)
Rear: Hoosier A7 275/35R17, possibly on 949racing.com 17x9et? 6UL wheels (spacers needed?)
Perhaps a more tame option, again curious about using this with stock LSS and bodywork:
Front: Hoosier A7 (plus lots of other tire options at this size) 225/45R15, possibly on TRMOTORSPORT FF10 15x7et30 (tirerack.com 92 Miata fitment) (probably with spacers)
Rear: Hoosier A7 (plus lots of other tire options at this size) 245/40R17, possibly on TRMOTORSPORT FF10 17x8et40 (tirerack.com 05 Mazdaspeed Miata fitment) (spacers needed?)
