Default New tires on RX-8 wheel

Hi !

I only have 4/32 on my current Bridgestone RE760 Sport 225/40/R18... must I change it during this summer ??? I will drive maybe 8000-10000km more before next winter.

With my currently setup ... RX-8 wheel + eibach pro kit + eibach pro spacer 10mm can I put 235/40/R18 easily without any rubbing ?

I want the much larger setup possible without any rubbing

thanks for your help

Don't know much about Speed3s but one thing I can tell you is the tire makes all of the difference in the world. Some tires are known for having rounder sidewalls and some tires have very square sidewalls. I ran 235/40R18 Continental DWS on 8.5 wheels with +37mm offset without issue. Then, I tried to run a 235/40R18 Toyo Proxes Plus 4 on 8" wheel with +38mm offset and it rubbed like crazy even with a full roll.

Here, let me do your homework for you:

First of all ... must I need to change my tire if I only got 4/32 ?

Secondly, I already see this thread ... but nobody have the exactly the same setup of me so it's why I'm asking if somebody here the same setup ...

True, but I bet there are some with more aggressive fitments on there. If they fit, you know you are gtg.

2/32nd (or 1/16) is generally considered the end of tire tread life. At 4/32 you still have some time. Most tires have wear bars molded into the tread. When the tread is even with the wear bar, it is time to get new tires.

As far as I can tell, no and from the research I've done, no. If it does, then I shall be rolling my fenders.

I just bought 235/40s for my rx8's. I'm stock height but there is still a good inch to inch and a half to go before rubbing.

My opinion is you'll be fine.

Will I have more benefit if I go with 245/35/R18 versus 235/40/R18 on my RX8 wheel.

More traction, more corner fun ... I think I gonna go with Michelin Pilot Super Sport

If its a decent price difference in tires, I wouldn't think it would be a significant enough difference in ride to justify the price.

31$ by tire

I'm a stage 2 - 94 octane - Stratified during summer

I just want tires that can keep with the torque ... so I know Michelin Pilot Super Sport will help versus my old Bridgestone RE760 Sport but I want to know if it's money well spending to go larger like 235/40/R18 or maybe 245/35/R18 versus 225/40/R18 or no really a gain versus the stock form for my wheel 225/40/R18 ...

I certainly do not think they are worth an extra 125 dollars. I don't know how sticky the Michelins are, but the Continentals DWs (not DWS) grab really well for me on E85. And I'm making way more power and torque than any OTS map. You want a tire with a soft sidewall. The michelins are probably decently soft, but I would definitely not get a tire like the Bridgestone, or Dunlop, or Hankook.

Lots of guys have the DWs and they hook pretty fucking well for being an 18 inch street tire. Very soft sidewall, but still handle pretty well. Best all around tire IMO.

so here in Canada the 235/40/R18 is BO so if I want a Michelin Pilot Super Sport ... I need to choose between 225/40/R18 or 245/35/R18 ...

Do you think I can fit the 245/35/R18 without a problem if I have 10mm spacer all around and my rear fender is already rolled and lightly push ???

Thanks for your help

My last setup was a 235/40/R18 Bridgestone RE760 SPORT ...
