post wheel pics 16"

Can someone post some photos of their wheels 245/45 16 and 205/55 16, I'm trying to get some ideas how my car will look.

Do a search under "wheels" and you can check lots of wheels.

What wheels are you considering to purchase?

Thanks. It's a 10 footer.

yes, it's lowered to below "Euro" specs.

About 25 rear, 25.5 front--wheel lip measurements.

With 245's on 9's and about 2.5 deg of neg camber is there a fair amount of room or clearance on each side of the tire?

Is there as much or more than .75" to the oil lines and arm bolts. And to the fender w a rolled lip?

Do some add spacers to push the wheels out further with 245x9/16's ?

Thx.

OEM 16x7 & 16x8 fuchs, 205/55R16 front, 245/45R16 rear. Set at about 1/2" below euro spec, about 2 degrees negative camber all around.

Here's mine on the track.

I didn't read all of the posts but 205/245 is not an optimal combination if you will be tracking the car. You will have significant understeer. Better combo would be 225/245 but I didn't want to roll the fenders.

Jeff,

Nice, are those 9's?

Just a note, looking at my front tire wear from my track runs it looks like the outside of the front tire is doing all the work so I suspect you are not loosing much w 205's. I think front /rear spring rate balance and more importantly, getting the badly needed neg camber is what helps w pushing.

Thanks. No they are 8's.

I don't track the car anymore but what I recall is we were running as much negative camber as possible...-2.5 I think.

It was a blast of a car on the track when I ran it. Nothing like the kick of MFI! Now it's mostly a garage queen getting prettied up for the parade.

Here's an '88 with 7s and 9s 205/50x16 and 245/45x16

No fender rolling and no rubbing, even with the 9s on the back.

It is going to 225's in the front that caused the fender clearance problem.
