PostSubject: Which Tyres..   Thu 14 Apr 2011, 9:34 am

Right. some of you will have seen my (shit) progress thread..

I've got some 7J bbs's (tbh they're not even bbs's they're some italian things, pretty light though)

And they're currently sittin on 205 55's, n theyre et24 so you can imagine it scrapes like HELL. silent

I don't really even fancy stretched tyres though cause im not feeling getting new tyres every few weeks..
So im wondering what common sizes i can get that will give me alot more clearance without to much stretch..

195 40's or something?

And also.. 7j with 205's? im sure thats not even right arent 195's more suited? Rolling Eyes

same goes for me, i got a mate at a garage local to me, i used to work there so get on well with the guy, he can do pretty competative prices for brand new tyres and he can also do ultimate stretch, dave_t can confirm this lol

forgot to add that if you did get stretch it would leave you with enough room to correct it with camber adjusters, so that you didnt get wear with neg camber.

New? forget new ones. Part worns will do me fine for now. They havent even got to last long, just for a month or so
Im gettin strapped for cash and i cant roll on 55's! any part worns with abit of stretch will do me nice for now.

you'll have a hard time gettin 4 part worn tyres in the spec you want, trust me i tried before went to evey local garage by me managed to get one that was a bit out the way.

you can try but if you only manage to get hold of one or two your mission will be incomplete lol save yourself the hassel and just buy some cheap new one's you tight bastard!!! Razz

I've got some nearly brand new tyres in the shed.. off some old disgusting 5 spoke's
185 50's i believe, i was gonna get them fitted but tbh theyre not even going to be much lower in profile then what i've got so there's no point.. My steelies have 4 brand new tyres aswell.
These doughnuts i've got on are continentals aswell! piss take.

But no yeah i am a tight bastard. (Im not when my bank balance is bless.)

haha nah im only messin dude.

some garage's take exchange's, ask your local and see if they can do anythin to help you get the new one's, there are also tyre for sale threads on the drift forums have a go and see if you can shift some that you dont need anymore to get some cash Razz

Lmaoo its cool. I know im being TIGHT here.

I know i know, the one by me do exchanges, if push comes to shove i'll go and exchange some, but then i won't have stretch...

I wonder what a 185 50 would be like.. theres no pics of them on tyrestretch.com
Thinking of flinging them on the back to be fair..

That way i could get some nice new stretched tyres on the front n have the front slammed
Back higher but the rubber will be fillin the arches so it'll be Acceptable(ish)
