Experience Nitto NT01 on Staggered Setup

Hello All,
Making the switch to R-comps this track season. I have looked up NT01 setups no answer to my questions.

I want to run apex ec-7 18x9.5 in front and 18x10.5 in rear. Suspesnsion is stock with GC camber plates. What tire size should I be running 275/35/18 front and rear of a 305/35/18 in back? Any expereince with this ast NT01 do not have 285/295 profile that I am aware of. Thanks,

-Art

Assuming that your wheels are a correct offset in the low 20s. The front tire size is correct and should fit. ( I use that size on 18x10 wheels ) 275 may be a little wide for a 9.5" wheel so check manufacturer specs.

As far as the rear, a 305 would be a good match but I am not aware of anyone fitting that size yet so cannot confirm that it works.

I am going to test fit a 315 BFG r1 in a week or so. A friend of mine has a 10.5" wheel and a tire he wants to fit on his car.

Check out the thread. " Max tire size fitted to the front ".

Mattm has run 315/30/19 rear and 265/35/19 up front on stock wheels. So looks like your rear should fit.

I will be testing the same tire on an apex 10.5 " wheel. Probably next Friday.

How have you guys made out with the 305/315 rear fitments?

NItto NT01 305/35/18 is on national back order so I am going to run 275/35/8 square on 9.5" APEX EC7 rim . At least on PSS I preffered the staggered setup to the square.

Would be curious to hear your feedback on this setup. Currently on staggered 18" M3 OEMs with stock-sized AD08s, but considering 275/35/18 NT01s on as-of-yet-to-be-acquired 18x10 ET25 Apex EC-7s.
