Joel,Thought I could get to the end of this process without another question but alas..it is not to be, so I hope you can indulge me once more. Have decided on Hoosier R6s for the track. Have obtained some lightwheight Kinesis 8-10X18. The question is what is the best R6 tire combo for that wheel size on a NB C2. For the front it looks like my options are 225/40 or 245/35. The Hoosier tire chart says I can put the 245/35/18 on an 8 inch rim...the Tirerack site says 8.5 minimum. For the rear looks like either 285/30 or 295/30...but what is interesting is that tread width is wider on the 285 and the min. wheel width is 10" vs. 9.5" for the 295...go figure...so HELP!You indicated that you have mounted alot of the Hoosier R6s of late...what would be your recommendation for my situation.As always...THANKS for your help!
