Again, it depends on the section width (should be in the tire specs on TR), because a 275 Dunlop is going to be way wider than a 275 Toyo, and the sidewall aspect ratio and wheel diameter will be a factor here as well. Likely anything in a 275 will require cut in flairs unless you're rocking stock ride height.

10.8" on early model will definitely require rolling and pulling, but may be achievable without cutting. 11"+ is going to need some fender surgery.

going for that street touring look now. scca has a max of 275 allowable with out a weight penalty. anything less then 275 is giving the competition an edge.

Weird, looks like some OLD tech stuff got blown away during the down time. OG's probably remember the Big Rubber Turbo thread: http://www.e30tech.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=39088

Even the Wayback Machine doesn't have it...

Dude put 18x10" wheels running something like 315s on them. Looked stupid, and was a prime example of too much of a good thing.

Looks like the apex wheels are back in stock.

https://www.apexraceparts.com/shop-b...c-8-wheel.html

or atleast ordered.

Dont want to drop cash on this yet but good to know apex is still making them. Maybe i try to find some used ones?

You'll have to report back on fitment of those. I've been thinking of stepping up to 17" because I got a good source for lightly used 17" R compound tires for cheap.
