  • Oh, geez, my first post. Opinion please on optimum tire size

    I have asked both Jason and Russ this question. So now I throw it out to
    the rest of you. What is the ideal tire size for both front and rear for a Z31
    producing about 400 RWHP? The car is an occasional "daily driver" with one
    or two trips to the drags and a couple auto-cross events per year.

    ideal tire size depends on the rim

    ideal rim size depends on price and intended surface

    ideal rim width depends on intended surface

    .....

    but I'll throw out a number that I myself jumped on, 16x8 +22 enkei's when I have the money 245/45-ZR16, mmmm meat is good

      Not related to the topic, but you'll be sorry to hear that one of your headlight louvers has gone to the grave. It met it's demise at the mercy of one particularily insideous yellow school bus.....I'm sorry...

      It may not be a Z, but it's still got a turbo...

        You didn't have to tell him! Now I feel even worse about it.

        Edit: to the matter at hand, I said 285's with a good compound tire and LSD should be enough to control straight-line wheelspin with that power level.

          Just stand back and throw money.
          Performance costs money.
          Reliable performance costs more.

            Yeah, me too. You know that those are no longer
            made, but before I sold them I made a template just in case I wanted to
            make a set for myself.

              You sir, are a genius. If I ever land a nice early car I'm going to want a set.

              1987 Nissan 300ZX Turbo (Budget Supercar)
              1987 Nissan 200SX SE (Old School FR)
              1994 Nissan Sentra SE-R (Balls To The Wall Track Car)
              2000 Nissan Maxima SE (Daily Driver)
              2006 Scion tC (Wife Whip)

              In an ideal world I would have all ten fingers on my left hand, so my right hand could just be a fist for punching.
