    Wish they came in 275's...I just don't want to lose 20mm of tire width on cars that already can use everything they have...

    Is tire shaving allowed these days? Since all I got is 16" wheels on a 3rd Gen, I'll be rocking these 255/50/16 RA1's possibly shaved if allowed. (I know I won't be a front contender for awhile and I won't be buying super expensive tires anytime soon)

    I might even invest in these 275/45/17 RA1's while they are a good price:

    you won't, they run wide. Ran a set of used ones on the Vette at Cresson last weekend. NICE tire. reminded me of the old RA1 but not quite as resistant to heat.

    It is my understanding they do fall off lap time wise over the life of the tire but if the set that I have had 8 hours of WRL "arrive and drive racer" drive time on them, they still have massive amounts of tread on them and they work well....even on a 3400# beast.

    Hope to soon run them on the CMC car in the 285/18 size....just have to get the exhaust header found.
    To hell with the rules, the guidelines and the politics....built the car to my wishes and having fun being the underdog running with the Wolves!
