Planning to buy the BF Goodrich KDW in 285/40/YR-17 as they are the biggest tire size I can get for 17 inch wheels in BF Goodrich. Are they as good as the KD's? or should I buy the 275/40YR17's in KD's instead.
What are my options with 17-10 inch wheels? I basically like the look of broad tires and also want maximum traction as I am having problems putting power down, as the car is too strong coming out of 1st and 2nd it fishtails and really screechs. What tire and size do you recomend? Tirerack will ship them to me!
By the way I currently have Dunlop SP8000. 255/40/ZR17 all round.
The brand/model tire will have more of an effect on traction than the size. The worst tire for traction in one that is over 75% worn. Tires with this many heat cycles tend to get very hard and loss a lot of their grip. The KD's are your best bet even though they get pretty noisey as they get worn out. I would recommend a 275/40R17 G-Force KD. This assumes you have at least a 40mm offset. If you also need a recommendation for the front, let me know what size and offset wheel you have on the front.
Thanks for your advice! Im sorry to say I have no clue about offset but the 255s in front fit quite easily and have no clearance problem. The rear is fine with enough gap using 255s. Will there be a problem with using 275s at the rear?
How do I check the offset?
Also will Summer heat on tires damage them and make them lose their performance?
After I have installed all the new seals, BCsprings, retainers, locks and buckets,
with T-belt off, put crank at -10 btdc so all pistons are slightly down, install new BC 272 cams, install cam gears, torque cams as per manual. Then turn CAMS clockwise to tdc notches, and than turn CRANK to tdc...
Recently acquired a rhd supra and slowly starting the process of swapping things over. Got myself some glass headlights and wanted to swap bulbs while I’m at it. Been told jdm lights differ from usdm. Hard finding more info on this. Thoughts? Trying to find a quality hid system, seems LED isn’t...
Just installed a pair of S2 taillights on my 93 Supra RZ. I would like to convert to LED. I would like to purchase from here as the prices seem very good.
According to my search in the Forums, looks like I need 2 x 7440 and 2 x 7443 bulbs Just not...
