I need an opinion from my TEXAS peeps

First, my question is about tires and racing, and yes I understand the hierarchy of the forums ... but I bring this up among our Texas Folks, because we understand the heat and average rain we get that effects tires. I did of course make a thread in the AutoX area as well ... but again, to my TX peeps.

So with out further adieu ...

I have been Auto-Xing with 16s and was thinking of going back to 17s for Auto-Xing this next year. Also looking at 215/45R17s(the standard on SVTs) or thinking of bumping up to 225/45R17s ... a bit wider.

Do you guys think I will rub going up to 225 width??

For those of you who don't know what I drive, its an SVT Focus sitting on H&R Race Springs and Koni Yellow Shocks.

Thoughts?

Ray

Yea, but the side wall was 55 on R16s ... so the 17s would be 225/45R17 ...

Just trying to figure it out that's all.
