Brakes are the AP Big Brake kit from Lotus and suspension is going to be upgraded with the Nitron 3 Way Adjustable kit from Elise parts, now as for the wider rubber..i don’t know...i don’t want to modifie the rear clam to fit wider rubber..will have to wait and see how traction will be with the stock wheels.

FYI you can fit up to 8" wide wheels in the rear, so you should be able to get 245 to 255 wide tires on there.

Nope. I have 8" with 245s. 255 would be too much for 8". Wish they made 8.5" for these cars. Also, all my camber shims are still on the car.
8" wheels with 245-255 and no rubbing at all?

245/45/16 on a 16x8" rear wheel. No rubbing for me.
