Re: Re: spring pads?

The HACK said:


Yes, it will definately affect handling FOR THE WORSE. Wider tires in the back will drastically increase UNDERSTEER. Larger rubber and larger wheels will decrease acceleration due to weight. Spring cups will decrease your camber angle hence decrease your cornering stability. Everything you are thinking of doing will no doubt make this car handle like crap while drastically decrease your acceleration.

But if you're dead set on doing it, by all means...We're not here to judge.:tsk:

Unless you've got an M5 motor under that hood of yours (you know it fits) and have the transmission to put every bit of that 400 HPs on the road, the 255 tires in the back is just purely for show only.
He has a supercharged 3.2L S52, I think 255s might help....

notice, his ride, Blown 332

How about 245/40-17s, or 245/35-18? I think those would fit. Maybe the rim is just too wide :dunno:
