If you have standard 9s in the back, what size are your tires?

Mine look skinny compared to some other car pics here on the forum. I know the rims are 9s, so I may go up one size next time if possible. I think mine are P245-45-16s. Then again, different brands of the same size tires can look fatter or more aggressive depending on the tread.

I think that's the widest you can get in 16", though I have seen 265/40 in some R-compound tires (V710/RA-1 I think).

Meatier is Better!!

Maxx1,

I agree,

The 45 series look too skinny.

I ran 50 series, which looked meatier and complimented the 225 50's up front.

Best of luck

Paul

They were Fuch or maybe Fuch clones in a 17 .... that would explain it.

50s would be a little taller as well. Do you like your gearing with those, or can you even notice it? They look good.

Porsche Crest Here's a shot of mine!

275 front 315 rear



For more info, see the September issue of Excellence Magazine pg 108.

Maxx1,

Since your are running factory 9's in the rear...I would recommend you go with 245 50's. The will not make your tires look wider. they will be taller from the side view.

Best of luck again,

Paul

Porsche Crest How about a sound clip of that Ruf exhaust?

Hey Mark McGarry,

How bout you let us hear that Ruf Exhaust. I have not heard one of those in years. As I recall...that is a $3000 muffler.

Very nice....

Let us hear it...

Paul
