The new tires showed up over the last few days, not mounted up yet, but here are a few shots. Got Toyo T1R's in stock siizes for the front, and Nitto 335-30-18 DR's for the back. Just waiting on the 18x12" wheels for the back to get everything mounted up. Here's a few shots: I'll take more when I get them on the car.










one more of the Nitto's:

Very nice Jim.....what is the width difference from a 275 to a 335?
Every extra 10mm is 0.4 inches wider.... plus or minus a little as the tire manufacturers do round to closest measurement.

I currently have the T-1S's and plan to replace them with the T-1R's when these wear out and the rears are getting close.:D

Jim, just curious, is your car mini tubbed? I would love to go to the 335 Nittos, but dont want to do the mini tubs. I guess Im still looking for a way to make it work.

No, no mini-tub, I am going with the 18x12" Z06 chrome wheels that have the proper offset for the big tires. They will stick out a bit past the fenders, but I can live with that.
I just hope the wheels show up soon!

Jim, please let me know if you have to modify the rear brake ducts. I heard this may be the case and that is what stopped me when I wanted to go the same route.

I am just going to remove the rear brake ducts for now. FRCTom has been running this combo for a while and that's what he had to do.
