Anyone ran 245/35 or 255/35 tires instead of the 30 series instead yet?

    How much is Speedo off with that and what spacers are you using.

    245/35-20 is 12.25mm (3.7%) taller than OEM. Those tires should make the actual speed is about 4% faster than the speedo read. The spacers are 7075 Aluminum Alloy CNC custom made.

    My spacers are custom made from the local shop (in Indonesia). I gave them a simple technical draw and they made it with CNC machine.

    For aesthetics and make the car heavier to reduce wheel spin during hard launches on the drag strip.

    I just had Kumho Ecsta 4X II 245-35-20 all seasons installed for my R. Prelim impressions is the car handles pot holes better but you can feel that you are riding high and car doesn’t feel as firmly planted as before. But good compromise for northeast, BJs team did great and they paid lot of attention to the car which was great.
