So you want an 11" wheel on the front? That might be pushing it.

My dad's 30 year vespa scooter has some 11" lying around. They have excellent grip from a dig, and take corners like a mofo! I'd throw in a tube for free since you're a fellow forum member :p

Talk to Vorshlag, they sell a set of custom Forgestar F14s that are 18x11. You do need to replace (whiteline's rear sway is about the only option for this) or remove the rear sway bar if you want anything wider than a 10", and with an 11", you would need to go to a watts link (panhard bar would be risky). It is amazing what will fit under the stock sheet metal of these cars.

People say that, but take a look at the Vorshlag TT3 car that broke records at most of the NASA events it entered in 2014. These are very large and extremely overweight cars, anything that you can do to provide extra tread section width will have a nice payout in the results archive.

Its not tire width that does that for those cars. Its steering geometry and suspension. I sized up to 265 and it was god awful. Back down to 255 and am still considering 245s next time around. I've put in a lot of time in autoX, although it was with my RX7. 255/285 worked very well for me there, but totally different front end. Tire size doesn't always produce better results especially on the s197 it seems. Now if you're just going for looks... that's totally different.

I raced on 295 NT-05s in my 5.0, and my fiance on 245 NT-01s on her 3.7. Her car felt more darty, more nimble, and sure it felt better on turn in ... but my car had more grip and i could turn in harder.

That being said, unless you're just absolutely in love with those rims, i dont see the purpose. Your car cant possibly need that much grip on the street, and you're going to basically be spending a ton of money on tires you're just going to burn up in your day to day commute?
