Re: Rear coilover kits and tire size limitations?

My guess would be in the 15-18" diameter range, and a width of 10"+ for stickies. But just a guess .

Which kind of stickys? There's autocross/road race sticky, then there's drag race sticky. Both are completely different since theyre used for different purposes.

Your best bet is going to be 18's. If you can make it fit, try to go 18x11 with 315/30/18 on all four corners. The 315's are available in different brands for different uses.
