275's and 315's

I came across a good deal on a set of 275/40/20 and 313/35/20. I have a 10" wheel out back and a 9" in front, will these tires fit on my wheels? Im more concerned about the rears fitting. Anyone have pics of a 315 in the rear?

Front is fine. I would only put 315s on a 10" if you get a super amazing deal though. 305s are the max I would do on a 10


Bullitts are better than Bullets

Thanks

Yeah I was doing a little more research and it seems even a 305 might be pushing it. I probably should stay at 295.

295s and 305s are most common. I'll be running 295s on my 10" soon.

There are few tires wider than a 285 that are a "summer" or street tire. The 295s i'm getting are a 200 tread wear tire. Technically they are a street tire, but people pretty much only get them for autocross or open course racing. (BFG Rivals)

Its basically a stock 2v. Probably 240hp and 280tq.

What makes it good at autocross is:
Subframe connectors
LCAs
Torque Arm (replaces UCAs)
Panhard Bar
Coilovers (with spring rates for AutoX)
4.10s (short gearing helps keep me in the rpms)
5 point harness with the harness bar

Skill. While there is skill in drag racing, autocross takes a completely different driver. Also don't need much power for Autox, thats why Miatas have a HUGE presence in autocross.

Also my car's alignment has negative camber and toe out, both of which help with turning (too much can hurt straight line).

Probably won't find much for tires that wide and last longer than 20k.

That's simply because of better compound. Tires are still too wide for the wheel. You are going to get more wear in the middle than evenly. That means when you launch the full tire isn't even touching.

All I can say is that they are doing their job and ill post pics later on to determine the wear characteristics. I believe they have full contact considering I run dr's at 20 psi in each tire. Didn't really have traction problems with the prior nittos and they lasted me 2 years. I'm not one of these guys that daily their mustang and all i was looking for was optimum traction in a streetable tire which I just found. For most maybe a sreet tire would suffice but not for what I'm about to do. Nt05r would be a good match if you need some straight line traction and you are making over 450 hp
