Which wheels/offset are you running with the R6's??

According to Cloud9 I'll be good with the Enkei PF-01's (35mm and 38mm offsets). Did you know Gary was the official guinea pig for BMO ?? ;D He suggested a 1/8" spacer up front which will be here today also, but he also believes it may not really be necessary. I can't wait to see what my rear looks like with 315/30's on ::)

Oh it's official alright, weren't you at the election ? ::) And yes, it comes with the benefit that we all can bust Gary's (censored) when he makes a mistake. Problem is it hasn't happened yet ! ;D

One day I might get to experience sticker slicks like you big ballers... ::)

Don't get sucked down the rabbit hole. I'm a track addict so I have an excuse ;D

Good thing I have a set of Conti stickers in the basement...........and thirty more horses comin
Fighting dirtier. Way to one up him Steve :p

Don't worry Pete the difference between the R6 and the sticker Contis is just about 30 hp. It's a driver's race now 8)

Same Enkei wheel combo. I'm hoping the fronts will work without spacers.....
You should be fine. You'll end up with about 3/8" to the strut which SHOULD be enough. Just make sure to grind down the hex head on your sway bar end link or shim it back with some washers.

I've fixed the sway bar end link -- lower coilover perch has almost 3/4" clearance to 285 Conti's, so I'm hoping the Hoosiers will not be THAT much wider inside when mounted.......

No they're not. I'd say max 1/4" but more likely 1/8". Either way with 1/2" you'll be more than fine.

Let's see, all I do is get a set if R6's and SOME people start grabbing 30+ RWHP and pulling A/C compressors. I do believe I smell fear....

;D

(Without Steve I would have missed a session due to my cracked rotors. Its brotherly love 8) )
