I installed the above sizes on my M Roadster a couple of
weeks ago on stock rims and needed a 5/32 spacer for the
front tires to clear the strut housing. I had the stock
Dunlops previously at driver schools and feel that with
intermediate driver skills the car was too much for the tires. Car performance was vastly improved with the new
wider G-Force rubber at about 36PSI. One caution to anyone
using a spacer, may need to also buy slightly longer
stud bolts and should check the torque for the first few
runs on the track.
