its not the size of the tire that matters, its the tire and the compund. i plan on running 295 all the way around on my car for my track setup. not to mention you wont really notice 10mm in the rear anyways if it were a 305. plus you want the tires to be as close to the same size all the way around for track use and you want the tire to stretch on that wheel.

Would these wheels and tires fit on a SS? Would you have to modify the fenders? I really like the wheel stance of the SSX.

They should bolt right up, but the stance has more to do with the Pfadt coil overs than the wheels and tires.

All the vid talks about are the aesthetics. Not much beef there. How about one of the engineers to tell us what has been done to the drivetrain?

The width and offset could make them too wide to fit without further modification.
