For road racing, you may want to step down to 18s to get decent tires. I'd probably just go with the factory tires and burn those off for now.

If this has been answered, my apologies, but the search function doesn't always give the results I'm looking for. I have a few questions:

1- I am having my car lowered next week and I'm currently running the stock 20" RS wheels. Will the 21 or 22" sizes listed in the first post work ok with my Pfadt sport suspension+ or would those sizes not work? (I mean even when I turn, I occasionally need to turn!)

2- Does a larger tire size (21 or 22) reduce the performance of the car?

3- If there is a list of recommended tire sizes for a dropped car, I'd love to see it!

Thanks.

Somebody didn't read the original post.

Recommended tire sizes based on wheel widths are what this post is about. Short answer, NO I wouldn't recommend those widths for factory wheels.
