A 315 would be sweet! I stuffed 315s in the back of my Vette, and while they looked so freakin' wide off the car, when mounted you don't really get the same feeling. On an open three-wheeled vehicle it would be a steamroller!!
Yeah the more open the rear of the car is the wider the tires tend to look. I will be researching hard to find the widest tire I can find on the stock rim as soon as I get my Slingshot. So all the info will be posted up here as soon as it becomes available
I already have a stack of slicks and radials in my garage that I am hoping fit. The first thing I'm going to do is a 1/4 mile run with the stock tire for a base line and then swap it out for a sticky slick or drag radial and see how much time it shaves off.
Tangent: I ran mostly 12.9s all day at a track rental a couple years ago in my Vette, and those runs were with the stock Goodyear Runcraps!
I have yet to go back now that I have Michelin PS2's, but I'm sure it would do better. They're much lighter and stickier.
1998 C5 in triple black (convertible). They are very forgiving of the rules for convertibles, on track rental days.
I think published #s for the C5s were supposed to be around 13.5 sec 1/4 mile.
I guess I shaved off 6 tenths because of my Vararam intake, Stage II Jet Performance module, and B&B bullet exhaust with Borla X pipe.
I picked up a set of 3:42 gears off an '04 Z06 a couple years ago (my stock gears are 2:73), So i'd like to go back to the track with the 3:42s and a higher stall torque converter (yes, sadly it's and A4 transmission - but it's good for the track!) . . .
. . . that is all assuming I don't sell the Vette for a Slingshot!
Judging by the "spy" photo of the tires that the fronts are 205s. The patent drawings show the rear tire just a little bigger than the fronts so I am guessing:
225/45/17 rear (maybe 245)
Please dont flame me on this if it has been answered (newbie here) I have a 2017 sl with 255/35/20 on the rear and was just wondering if anyone has gone to a 255/45/20 on the rear for more comfort in riding without the nanny causing problems. I have read a lot of post and dont understand the %...
Looking on the Polaris site and I see the SLR forged wheels are available for my 2019 SL. I have some credit with my dealer so I can get them for pretty cheap. My question is, with them being forged they should be stronger and have a higher load capacity than the stock SL wheels. I’m a bigger...
My wife and I have a 2019 SLR with factory tires. The rear is starting to wear and I'd like to have a new one on hand to put on soon. The factory tire is a 305=30-20.I want to go to a 295-50-20. I've even seen a 295-45-20 I liked. Any comments or concerns about my plans???
