Well, I'm currently running FSP in autocross which allows upto a 225 (wide) DOT approved tire. In fact, the 16 x 8's should fit that perfectly. I know what you mean about the rubbing, I expect that may be the case.
Do you really think I'm going to need longer studs on the wheel hub? In any case, I'll try my theory out at a Junk yard, hopefully I can find one that has both cars and wheels available for fitment.
Has anybody tried this though? Just curious.
Lisa Belgetti: When people risk their lives, shouldn't it be for something very important?
Michael Delaney: Well, it better be.
Lisa Belgetti: But what is so important about driving faster than anyone else?
Michael Delaney: Lotta people go through life doing things badly. Racing's important to men who do it well. When you're racing, it's life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting.
