335s on the stock rear 10.5J rim? that must have been stretched!

I've seen 345s on a 12J rim which fit nicely and used on track.

I think the opposite of stretched dude! If the stock tyre size is 285 a 335 is hardly stretched in fact I would imagine it wobble about like a jelly, my forgelines rears with 305 888 the guy struggled to get them on and the 335 were perfect (for road use) but not as sure footed as dunlops or the 888

whoops, yes sorry was thinking about vee dub craze with stretched tyres on wider rims with crazy cambers

Were the 335 MPSSs?
R888R 315 fit the 10.5J ok, ideally a 11J is better suited thou

Yeah the 335 were MPS ran at about 35 psi not too wobbly but I prefer the Dunlop or 888 for decent roads and track, I did a whole weekend at Dunsfold on the Dunlops and only thing that overtook me was a Radical Id put em not far off the 888 but last about 4 times as long.

MPSS are available in 255/35/20 XL, according to the interweb that makes it a better match for the 305/30/20, but it differs from OEM in that the fronts are smaller than the rears by 0.7% whereas OEM fronts are larger than rears by 0.4%.

Tempted just to change for OEM sizes now.

Any thoughts on running 305/30/20 and 255/35/20?


Also for ref even better sizes:
295/30/20 with 255/35/20
AND
295/35/20 with 255/30/20



The advantage of 295/35/20 is you retain stock speedo readings which are off with 305/30/20 (2mph off at 80mph)
