To you it's "properly stretched", but don't go on like it's a fact when it isn't "properly stretched" at all.
it is properly stretched, that fact is based on it being way under the minimum tyre size for that width of wheel.

just because you have told yourself its completely acceptable, does not make it a fact that its an acceptable level of stretch


but again, your entitled to run your stretched tyres, and yes there are people out there that will go even more extreme :)

That’s the spec of my Zito 935’s...
Very tight on the rear with 255 rubber and needed a light roll to stop it rubbing on all but the smoothest roads :wink:
Follow the link in my sig to my build thread. Got pics of 9.5 et45 with NS2-R 255/35 in there if you want to gauge how close they are (E82 though).
Cheers for the link, car looks good!

but i think that's sold it for me, still too much stretch for what I'm wanting, and that's with semi slicks! clearly 8.5" with a 255 is where its at!

unless i go high offset and jump up to a 265/275... hard enough finding wheels with ET45 out back lol!
