Help Needed - SJ Leggro Wheels & Track Tires

I’m considering a 15/16 settup for the track –

Has anyone run 245-45-16 tires on the rear of these wheels?

I am a bit concerned by the 25mm offset

What tires are you running with them?

Thanks -

245-45-16 BFG R1's were too big for the rears. Brent was nice enough to help me at the track and he added a ton of camber, and removed the rear side markers for them to not rub. On the street you may be fine depending on how low your car is, but on the track 245's will not work (again ride height dependent). 235's should work. I contemplated machining the inside of the wheel that goes to the hub but there might not have been enough material. Also depending on the tire you might get away with a 245...the RA1 might work as that is what Neil was using on his Spyder with some ride height. But yeah, 25mm offset is very aggressive I would stick with a better fitting wheel for the track unless you are moving to a 235 or 225.

245/45r16 RA-1's definitely cleared on un modified LSS suspension with rota slipstreams which are 8" wide and et34. The question on there would be if the 9mm offset difference is enough to cause trouble...
