This past year was my first in Solo. I have a 2003 350z Performance model, 18x8 rims with the Brembo brake package. The car came with a Injen CAI and needed new tires, so I got wider rims (18x8.5 F and 18x9.5 R) and Hankook RS-3 tires (245/265). Last year I ran in STU. I want to move to the stock class this year, so I found a stock airbox and will be getting new tires for the stock rims.
I was talking with one of our pro drivers in my region (FLR) and he suggested the Direzza ZII Star Spec in 275/35 would fit. I wanted to run the same size (square) on all 4 corners. They are 8" rims and comes stock with 225 front and 245 rear. He said the Direzza's have really stiff side walls, so they would work well even though they'd be pinched. Any other opinion on this? I really liked the RS-3's too. If I went with new RS-3's, what size should I go with?
Another question; The track model that year had 8.5" wide rear rims. Would I be able to get those rims and still be able to stay in the stock class since it is an available option for that year? Thanks in advance.
