If I were to run 4 rear oem 19s, what tire size would be recommended for track tires./ Stock other than brake pads and fluids, but advanced/instructor level driver.
I asked same in wheel forums.. one person said rears in front would rub strut ? but didnt hear much from anyone else.If I were to run 4 rear oem 19s, what tire size would be recommended for track tires./ Stock other than brake pads and fluids, but advanced/instructor level driver.
I'm sorry to read that happened, but thank you for the valuable information! I'm just going to stick with stock sizes I believe, for now.Don't!
Learn from my mistake! For some unknown reason, I mounted rear (275) to front and front (255) to the rear on driver side only. I usually mark them to be on right corners but for some mysterious reason, I switched it. During track days I did noticed funny handling characteristic but I thought it might have been alignment or something. As I was replacing brake pad today, I noticed shiny spot on front driver side strut where spring seats. Further investigation, I realized I put rear wheel/tire to front! yikes! more comparison of tires revealed my inner wall of the tire was carved out about 1/4 inches and almost showing fabric! it was down right to dangerous situation. Another thing I noticed, when the wheel is turned all the way to left, tire was rubbing inside of wheel wall. Now I have source new tires before next track day which is in 6 days.
If you want to use rear wheels in front to have square setup, you may have to use 10mm spacer. That will clear the strut but I cannot say for sure that will not destroy hood.
So, in short, don't do it. look for other option to have square setup.
https://support.apexraceparts.com/hc/en-us/articles/1260802325669-GR-Supra-Wheel-Tire-Fitment-GuideI'm considering running a square 19x10.5 with 275/30-19, anyone with this experience? will it rub the strut or anything within the wheel hubs.
appreciate all the responses.
