Yeah I thought the same thing. Now I'm thinking I should go 285 or even 275 on my 18X13s.

Maybe he measured from the outside of the barrels instead of the inside. Another member had a 325/25 on a 13 and it was stretched. I have a 255/35 on an 11 and it's stretched a good bit. The 295/30 sidewall is the same height but not stretched as much even though his tires would theoretically be stretched 10 more mm's than mines. I know PS2's run huge though.

Like tiger4life said: did you measure from the outside of the barrels or the inside? If you measured from the outside, and they measured 12", then I'm pretty sure you're on an 11-11.5" wheel... unless I have my thinking backwards?

First page update PARTS IN and yes guys I can measure inside mounting is 12.7 inches note the 325/25 you posted is a completely different beast each side wall ratio increase actually reduces the amount of stretch so if they made a 295/25/20 it would actually expose the lips on the rims and be more dysfunctional then functional. Now also note the picture angle is terrible as actual real life sees the tire stretched about 2/3inch off of each lip both outer and inner.

Oh and I forgot so asking this Carbon fiber hood and trunk? Looking at oem fit nothing vented. Also carbon fiber front splitter yea or nah? Im also trying to steel the design of the is350 carbon rear diffuser and adapt it to the GS. One last thought we're seriously thinking of keeping the 1uzfe building them and mating it to a nissan 350/370 6 speed manual transmission as they are abundant and 1/3 the price of LSX t56's

Unfortunately that's the point a little secretive till we do some actual fitting sorry but that's why its a tease. We have some full days we can put in on the car so I will photo the car when its in the white primer and that will be the first look at the kit. Till then what does every one think oem carbon hood and trunk with explosion 3 piece wing or aggressive track wing? Also carbon splitter up front or no?
