im just going to throw this out. the 205/50/16 like the one i have is ALOT wider than regular tires. fyi, used it for auto-x and i had a bit of rubbing issues already. my car isnt slammed either. -2.5 and -1.5 camber f/r respectively. car picture can be found in "put face to car " or wutever. put the same rim/tire on my friends eg, and it was non stop rubbing. so the 225's you are looking to get will definitely rub and you will most likely have to roll the fenders.

I can only confirm what others have said about the 615's. However, I just got back from a Seat-Time event at Roebling and I have 215/45/R16 on my DC2 and they held up amazing. The boast a 180 treadwear, which is a little less than the 615's but so much more traction. Very perdictable tire. I've got about 10k on them mostly spirited street driving a 4 days of abuse at Deal's Gap and about 120min of track time on them and not quite to the wear bars! Only about $94 each for my size.

I am definatley in for more info on the other tires!!
wut were u running? giving info on tires but not telling people what they were is pointless.

RA1's

they are their grippiest right before they are chorded. So that means when you buy them new, they get better and better and better:up:
nice. i dont know if thats good or scary.

ive seen alot of the spec porsches run r888's and other cars run ra1's I guess it depends on the setup of the course?

wuts the purpose of swinging out the back end? im always faster when my rear trails the front, kicking it out seemed to make me spin. i guess its how people prefer things?
