Default **Official non-staggered & meaty tires thread**

Been looking through many random threads with some great non-staggered setups. Didn't think there was an official thread for this, so why not?

Like the title says, show us your non-staggered setups equipped with 245s or wider! No stretch and slam, etc. here!

Also, please post your wheel and tire specs(if you don't mind sharing).

I'll start off. Mine is more on the mild side... 17x9 +45 Advan RS's all around, wrapped in 255/40 RE11s.

^^ looks good!

Here's mine - 949 Racing 17x9's w/255 R-S3's:



That's all I've got though. Unfortunately I was just in an accident with it because some lady didn't see me and pulled out of a driveway

Very nice! Like the high offsets. Do you have any inner rubbing?

Fish22, do those tires rub much? I'm guessing you got the fenders rolled.

I do have some inner rubbing (and outer!) up front but the rears are okay. I'm on KW's - 500# springs, and a Saner bar up front so that kinda keeps the roll in check. Negative camber helps too (-2.2-ish degrees up front). On the street it won't rub but in auto-x situations there is definite rubbing. I'm very happy with the car's handling.

Yes, rears and fronts are rolled(fronts are also pulled). Only rubbing seems to be on the inner part of the fender liner.

Yeah, the only rubbing I've been having is on the inner side. I really don't think there's any way around it either(other than running skinnier tires and lower offsets), considering right behind the fender liner there, is the bulkhead.

Subscribed. Sick of aggressive offsets with stretched tires.
