Re: What tires/wheels are you sporty zook guys running
The only thing I have ever seen anyone on this board do in relation to street rod samis is make fun of them. After all, this is OFFROAD.COM, ya know? Seems like most of the high power engine swap were done to push taller/wider tires, not compete in SCCA Solo II.
This is not to say there isn't some potential cool factor in building a racy sami. I have seen (like you said) some pretty hairy powerplants and drivetrains in samis on here, I just dont think they were members of this board.
Wouldn't it stand to reason that the same general rules of tire sizing would work, ya know, the +1 or +2 things with proportionate aspect ratio reduction to increased rim size? I know there's some funky tire calc things on line that can do the math for you to go up in rim size. I'll see if I can find one and post back.
