That depends on what kind of "clearance" issues you're talking about. Just by installing these tires, you're essentially lowering your car 1.5". Add that to whatever amount of lowering you already have, and you could be scraping the bottom of your car over every little pebble. But I suppose if they are going to be for track-only, then do whatever you like. I can totally appreciate the performance advantages you're trying to achieve here, but "the look" is just not for me. They're nice and wide, but I think the height will just make the whole set-up look funny! It's like the opposite of donkin' out your car with the huge 26"+ wheels!!! Either way it's going to look kinda weird in my opinion. But I wish you the best, and hope you achieve your goals with this. Eager to see pics!!!
