Sure....Just before the UCONN car show!   Cry

I may hafta inflate my 205's to 60 psi to compete!  rolleyes

Those look to be 9 inches wide before mounting.  Very impressive.

Just be careful of the temperature restrictions, this week is right at their lower limit.  Enjoy.

It'll be interesting to see  the difference.

yea i checked here, m.net, cr.net, scca forums... I might be the first to run the 225s  Cheesy

From what i WAS able to gather from the forums... they're mighty sticky, but not necessarily any faster than dunlops or bstones, however the wear is fast and can be inconsistent.  As far as the wear inconsistancy goes, they seem to be very sensitive to tire pressure and you gotta find just the right sweet spot.  Basically... I expect to be throwing them out in the late fall when I switch to winters, as this is my DD and I occasionally autox.  A comprehensive review from me might not be very useful because I let my azenis wear down to nearly nothing so I'm going from slippery to ultra-sticky.

Well, there's definitely a little more stretch that I hoped for... definitely looking kinda clubroadster.  Ohwell, they'll haft to do for this year.  Also, the rim rubs against the shock's top hat at full lock... but only one side, so maybe I'll be able to figure something out... maybe a touch less neg camber.  Pics late tonight.

im not sure what youre asking... Such that the wheel is facing the camera? Either way, sure... Just gotta wait till tomorrow afternoon.  Also, the rub at full lock is now very very minor.. And mind you im -1.7 camber up front.

Wow! Those are wide tires.  I really like the mirror finish on the rims.  6UL's are so sexual.   afro

Looks beautiful, and should really stick.  drivingss

Any thoughts on the best pressure yet?
