Hey Guys,

I recently got some Mickey Thompson 255/50/16 ET Street Radials with 94 RX7 wheels as I read on these boards they would fit...

Headed out to the track, put them in the trunk, and tried to install them when I got there...

They would go over the wheel, but didnt allow it to turn at all...

Any ideas as I'm sure their are others who are running this setup...

So basically, grinding off the calipers....


But no spacer required correct?
I've heard some people use spacers. In my case, I tried a set and had to shave the calipers. Fit fine. Very close, but no probs.

Mine fit fine, but it is VERY close. I have heard that they would fit some cars, and some they wouldnt. I would just grind on that part of the caliper.

I guess your question is answered so I can hijack the thread. My car's white, and I found some pics of a local who has bronze te37's. Please post pics of your ride.

You're doing something wrong if you're only getting 3 weeks of life out of your drag radials. :doh:
