    Jim,
    I know you used to run the 235/45/13 Kuhmos on a 7.5 rim. Was it tight on the wheel? How much better would a 8" wide wheel be(would you gain alot of contact patch)? Could a 7" wide wheel work(would it be to hard to get on the wheel or would shrink the contact patch to much)? Just trying to decide how important a really wide wheel would be in this appilication.

    Kyle,

    1) Yes, a little.
    2) It'd be better, you'd gain some.
    3) No, I wouldn't do it..

    I've never used the 215/50-13 Ecsta, but it might be a better choice for you. I may have to try some for my next set of 13"'s.

    Jim,
    Thanx for the info....the 215 might be a great idea, it would lower the gearing some more and may allow the car to stay nimble. Then again I could go the other way and put 13x9s on it :thumbsup:
