In Reply to: anyone run rear tires larger than 245/40/17's rear posted by vic on November 14, 1998 at 17:06:02:
: I am having problems with traction in the rear because I just installed an RD Sport 3.5 litre engine into my 328 coupe. I am running 245/40/17 but traction off the line is still a bit of a problem. Is there anyone running 255 or 265/40/17's in the rear without clearance problems? I don't mind rolling the fenders. I am running H&R sport springs with Bilsteins sport inserts. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
I run 255/40 on my M3/4, on a 9 in wheel. Had to roll the fenders even when stock ride height, but even after 1" drop, it is alright...How much power do you get now with the RD?
