Selecting a good tyre to stretch

What size, make, design, pressure? Who can stretch tyres? Tuck, rake, poke. Coilovers, roll (sway) bars, strut braces (tie bars), air-ride, hydraulics, camber plates/spherical bearings?

I'm almost in the same boat.

15x8.5 front and 15x9 back.
I bought four T1-Rs 195-45-15. Haven't mounted them yet, just were ordered. They look pretty good on Tyrestretch.com, and I've hear of people daily driving on such a setup.

Sure. Lips are being shipped today along with the tires. I should have something next week assuming I can find a place to do the stretching for me.

I dont think you'll ever get a clear cut response to tyre stretch dude. Everyones experiences are different as you've learned. I'm brand new to stretch, and 10 different people have recommended 10 different brands! For real! The thing i'm most concerned about though is poor performance in wet weather. Sounds like stretch is ok but sketchy when wet. If you're goin to be daily driving like me, and you live in the uk, dont skimp on tyres! Price up some top brand best rated tyres and then find out if they'll stretch. I'm unsure if the top brand XL (extra load) tyres can actually be stretched, however I think i have seen people in here with P zeros. I've decided on 195/40's on my 7x16's size wise by the way. Some suggest its a sensible stretch for a daily drive.

Which ones the NS-2 Ultra sports or the NS-20 Noble sports?
Im looking at some tires for the R.
I was thinking 215/40 18 front 8.5" rim and 235/40/18 10"rim and they are still under the 4% for rolling diameter?

Thanks for the help guys.

how do you guys feel about a 225/40 on an 18x7.5 and 18x10? going on a low mk4.

i found a good deal on a set of (4) kumho ecsta ast 225/40/18s and i know that stretch on a 7.5 is stupid so im thinking this could work out? has anyone ever stretched these tires?

or should i go with 235/40 for the rears? this is a daily driver.
where did the ceilings go?



not yer average chick.
