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?

Going back to Nankang tires. I'm thinking of putting some (NS-1's) on in 205/40/17 on some 8" wide Audi pie plates. Does anyone have good pics of what they might look like stretched or any :idea: of what sort of stretch it'll give me. Thanks.

Can anyone help me :D

Can an Extra Load (XL) tyre can be stretched, or is the sidewall too stiff?

Would be putting a 215/40/17 onto a 9 inch rim. :think:

Now my help for the person above.

A 205/40/17 Nankang onto an 8.

Nankangs & Falken tyres are good & easy to stretch.
had them all stretch & went on easy.

165/40/16 on 7.5j rim
195/40/16 on 9j rim

recently had to replace one, ended up getting a toyo t1R, took forever to get on, side walls weren't wanting to budge. wouldn't recommend these for stretching just due to hard work.

i think it can be 205/40 for front and 215/40 for rear, but i can be wrong.

Why this is happening, you need to know, for me, major 512 alpha crew will use all the time, not of polypropylene and shows you real good.
