    I like 275/35/18 Continental Sport Cup scrubs but I see a post here where someone corded them after 2 sessions. I never had that issue, but that gave me pause. I never really try to squeeze 100% out of a car at HPDE's.....more like 85 to 90%. Which will scare the hell out of you initially btw.

    I read all the posts on here, yes all. I see R888's and Nitto NT01's mentioned a lot.
    Having said all that I think 275's are the max I'd put on a 9.5" rim for high speed corning and I'm pretty set on the Continentals.

    I was thinking about going with 275's, just was afraid they would rub with heavy turning.

    I've heard 295's being used so not to worried about 275's....and yes Jim I forgot about the Hankooks.

    What shot is the 2nd from the bottom? Caliper clearance?

    Back of the wheel to the suspension. Rim still has 1/2" clearance at it's closest point to the knuckle. Unfortunately I don't think you can machine the rim "mounting pad" because the caliper is getting close to the rim face.
