You all are talking two different sizes

The 255/40s are coming in January, but the 245/40s not until March.

Scooby South, what wheels and offset are you running with the 255s?

I want to go with 255s on 17x9 +42 RPF1s but I am worried about rubbing up front, do yours clear ok with coilovers? I saw Vorshlag had rubbing issues with 255s, but that was with oem sized coils.

Braces....not at all..
Pulley-
Quote:
H. Any accessory pulleys and belts of the same type (e.g., V-belt, serpentine)
as standard may be used. This allowance applies to accessory
pulleys only (e.g., alternator, water pump, power steering
pump, and crankshaft drive pulleys). It does not allow replacement,
modification, or substitution of pulleys, cogs, gears, or belts which
are part of cam, layshaft, or ignition drive or timing systems, etc.
Any crankshaft damper or pulley may be used. SFI-rated dampers
are recommended. Supercharged cars may not change the effective
diameter of any pulley which drives the supercharger.
hope that answers your question..

Bill

Strut Braces and Sub-frame connectors:

Quote:
G. Strut bars (per Section 12) are permitted with all types of suspension,
subject to the following constraints:
1. a two-point strut bar may be added, removed, modified, or substituted,
but only with another two-point strut bar.
2. A triangulated (3-point) strut bar may be removed, modified, or
substituted; substitution may be with either a triangulated or a twopoint
strut bar. The connection to the chassis (i.e., firewall, bulkhead,
etc) must be in the standard location.
3. Lower suspension braces must be attached to the lower suspension
pickup point locations on the chassis within 2 inches (2”, 50.8
mm) in any direction of the actual suspension attachment to the
chassis.
4. Except for standard parts, no connections to other components
are permitted.
Additional holes may be drilled for mounting bolts. Only bolt-on attachment
is permitted. Interior trim panels may be modified to allow
installation of strut bars. Holes or slots may be no larger than necessary
and may serve no other purpose. This does not permit any
modifications to the frame or unibody beyond the allowed mounting
holes.
H. Longitudinal (fore-aft) subframe connectors (“SFCs”) are permitted
with the following restrictions:
1. They must only connect previously unconnected boxed frame rails
on unibody vehicles.
2. Each SFC must attach at no more than three points on the unibody
(e.g. front, rear, and one point in between such as a seat
mount brace or rocker box brace).
3. SFCs must be bolted in place and not welded.
4. No cutting of OE subframes or floorpan stampings is permitted.
Drilling is permitted for mounting bolts only.
5. No cross-car/lateral/triangulated connections directly between the
driver’s side and passenger’s side SFCs are permitted. Connections
to OE components such as tunnel braces or closure panels
via bolts are allowed and count as the third point of attachment.
No alteration to the OE components is permitted.
14. Street Touring® Category — 83
6. SFCs may not be used to attach other components (including but
not limited to torque arm front mounts or driveshaft loops) and
may serve no other purpose.
