I slotted my factory strut to get the camber I wanted. It takes very little material removal to produce measurable camber change. I was only able to get around 2 degrees neg up front with camber...

Very true about studded tires being noisy ..they're VERY loud. Although just keeping things in perspective, they're no louder than an aftermarket exhaust system, just a different sound. They're also...

I had the same tires, except on 16x6.5 steelies. Overall I wasn't terribly impressed compared to other snow tires I'd had previously. They were good enough in poor weather when new, like any new...

See, I disagree that 18s look good on these cars. They look clownish to me, like a 14 year old kid drawing a car. Tires need some sidewall to look like real tires...

Hear hear! I've said it before, but I'm absolutely convinced that this chassis was tuned with 16s in mind, and only went up to 17s for marketing reasons. The more dynamic behavior of the taller...

I think it goes without saying that the comparison of wheel diameters is using the same model tire in the comparison. There's certainly no shortage of 200tw, R compound, or even UHP tires in 16",...

Both of those are way too short in the sidewall for a 15" wheel. 225/50-16 is what I run, and that's pretty darn close to OEM circumference. A 225/50-15 would look ridiculous; 205 even worse,...

I don't think 195 is nearly enough tire for ~2900 pounds, but a 15x7 et35 could tolerate a 245/50 tire. Less than ideal for a number of reasons though...needs another half inch of width, and the...
