RS-3's Deal or No Deal?

Im planning on picking up some Rs-3's for AutoX. These are the sizes
225/40/18 front
255/35/18 rear
Im putting these on the stock rims. Are these a good size or should i go bigger or smaller????

RS-3s are great.
That said, not sure about the stock rim sizing.

I run 255/35-18 square, but on Apex ARC-8 rims. That's a killer combo for Auto-X and track. With 225's up front, I think you'll have to take "slow in, fast out" very much to heart on the next auto-x...

Very true....slow in, fast out.

I spent my funds on a set on nice DD rims. lol and i was planning on using the stock one for autox/track. So right now gotta wait it pick on a good set of rims for racing so that i can also run a square setup.

did you have to roll/pull your fenders up front to fit the 255's?
