I love my Arc-8's. 235/40 front and 265/35 rear Hankooks for me. No rubbing anywhere at all.

Glad I was talked out of trying 245 in the front, with the factory alignment they would not have fit. 235 just barely makes it. The rears on the other hand - the offset seems perfect as my 265's have plenty of room on each side. Don't buy tires on my recommendation but I think 275, possibly 285 would fit if someone was so inclined.

I've gotten a few compliments on the wheels as well - "great looking car, love those wheels" kind of thing, without me even mentioning them.

Picking up a set b4 my track event in Oct. 255/275 PSSs would work correct? What else are people running on the track w/ these wheels? researching now.

255/275 PSS would work, but you will need camber plates up front with around -2 degrees of camber. A thin spacer may be needed for strut tube clearance. I know another member on here has this exact setup. They posted detailed photos in the wheel/tire section.

another popular tire is the Kumho XS as it comes in 245/35/18 and takes less modification to install. camber plates are still needed but less camber is needed. It can also be run square on the 8.5's. But comes in 265/35/18 and 275/35/18 sizes as well for the rear.

For those who don't want to run camber plates, extreme summer tires in 245/40/18 fit up front. That can pair well with 265/35/18's in the rear.

Thanks, running camber plates w/ -1.5 F -2 R. Looking to use only for the track so may move out of the PSSs and into something else.

The Kumho XS setup would work well then at 1.5 degrees would be enough for it to clear the fender.

Group Buy info will be posted in January. We cannot discuss the timing or Group Buys in any more detail at this time. This thread is to be kept to non-group buy discussions, and there will be a separate thread for it at that time.
