    Who loves meaty tires? I love meaty tires

    I have never been a fan of "rubber" band tires. In the ideal world, I would have ran 15X7 RPF-1's on 205/55's...

    but the Sparco's will have to do for now :) I have grown to like them more and more. Made by OZ, light weight, you can't go wrong for the price!

    If you have some meaty tires love, throw them up here

    I love the look and I bet it's so much more comfy. I'm debating on going down to 16".

    I hope to go meaty in the other direction eventually. I want some 225-235 on 17x8 all around in a nice sticky tire (like nt-01 or something). Problem is getting the wheel fitment on point, which I WILL do lol.
    A question that sometimes drives me hazy: am I or are the others crazy?

    My tires just came in for my 17x8 wheels. im running 235/40r17 on the federal rsr. Not as sticky as an r-comp like the nt-01 but should be sticky enough, ill post up pictures.

    What offset are your 17x8? My 17x7 +42 with 215 Z2 starspecs barely clear my coilovers with -2.1 camber. I think you would need to go to at least a +38 for 225+ performance tires.

    Of course, if you use upper camber plates then you gain back a bunch of tire to strut space for the same amount of negative camber, but that also brings on a bunch of other problems, specific to the FiST platform.
