there are always spacersThat's interesting. Sean's running BC's. His rear beam is bent, but I don't see how that would be giving him any extra strut clearance. And for the fronts, I wonder if those custom control arms made any difference in his fitment.
I've always heard the Toyo R1R's actually run wider than what they say so people restricted to certain tire sizes can max their grip at the track. If you stack four 245/35 R1R's beside any four regular street 245/35, the R1R stack will be much taller, from the pictures and reads I've read online. I would almost venture to say Sean may be pushing 7" backspace. Which doesn't really add up with your experiences so far. Lol.
this is true for most of the r-comps
at least the r888s and the sport cups above
that little 225/50/15 michelin was as wide as my 8" slicks
I'm just plugging numbers into the wheel calculator and comparing

I'll be running 17x8.5 +40 wheels here soon. That's 6.3" of backspace, on 245/40 summer tires or 235/40 R1R's. I guess we'll see what happens. Haha.
i must be missing something, i have seen sean's car
if you remember i tried getting on the ground to look, seemed perfect
