Yes, i put the car on the rack and it had toe out in the rear and started the event with too firm of a setup in the front.

The car was better on the stock struts and shocks, i am going to soften the wholecar up. I think i am going to need to take the h & r front sway bar off and go back to the e93 bar while running stock springs.

I am going to run it again next year.

No real understeer that I cared about. I liked the way it handled. Not sure how I'd catch the 3.5 second the leaders had on me but I'm not alone in that mind set. I need to play with the KW settings too.

55 gallon drum of Crisco. Actually there are no issues with fitment. I was surprised too and happy. Especially for the Pro Solo launches.

Just got the 295/30/19s installed last night. Went on the wheels without issue and went back on the car without issue. Seems like an easy fit. Very happy with the increased grip. Can definitely tell the difference on some of the off ramps compared to the 275s I had on back.

Any updates on the 295/30 19s at the rear? Other than increased grip did you notice any change in the handling of the car? By the way, are you on stock sizes front?

Hey man,

Tires are doing great! The increased grip is nice. Car is still very playful and the backend will still come out on command. Just doesn't light up the back end quite as often now. I am still on the stock front tires.

That's what I was hoping to hear, thanks!

19". I had heard from a friend that his 315 18" fit a 1M and that I should try a 19" 315/35 tire.

Where do you find 265/30/19 A6s?

Thanks! Why just 255/30 on the front if I may ask? Or, maybe 35 not 30?

I wonder how much worse the ride will be with fr/re 30 profile tires, like 275/30 fr and 295/30 re.

I'd imagine that there's an awful lot of push with that much of a stagger.

I'd go with wider rubber in front.

My Hoosiers as mounted today at the NJ Pro Solo.
The not so panarama is of the course, timing trailer with the Empire State Building and Freedom Tower in the background as part of the greatest city in the world (I might be biased). The ESB is just to the right of the "ugliest building in New Jersey* and the Freedom Tower is just above the timing trailer.

Nice! Couple of question though....How does the hoosier sizing compare to PSS...What offsets are your forgestars? And assuming from your last post, there are no issues with rubbing? I would love to fit 315 PSS on the rear. HAHA!

I'm not sure on the comparo with the Hoosiers and PSS. Tirerack would have the specs. No rubbing in the 315s. I'm just not fast enough at the Pro.

You dont want to over stuff a street tire. The hoosiers have a stiff sidewall and over stuffing has always worked with them.

With a street tire, i think you are going to lose contact path at some point beyond 295 in the rear.

With that said i am looking for the right size combo for my 1m to run in the street tire class, i have been looking for a 265/295 combo in a known good autox tire.

Pss are not on that list. I dont think i have ever seen anyone autox with some success with them. I see people on here using them. Do you like them? How is the understeer with that 255/295 combo?

In street tire, I figure the Z2 (265/285) or the BFG Rival (275/295) will be the hot set-up.

We had an e30 running Rivals yesterday at the Houston chapter autocross. Those tires sure feel sticky.
