Once again, we are legally limited in Aus. We can't go any wider than 8" here.

If you are going to track it, I can see a point of fitting big rubber...and on a 1 tonne car with less 200hp 255s are huge...but as a road car I reckon it would spoil it.

8x17 ET35 (offset) with 215/45-17 would be perfect on the spider.

Agreed. You may not have the sport of Autocross down there in Australia. It's a relatively low speed event where grip is critical, wider often wins, and because of that fact class limits on width apply. We have set our Fiat 124 to same SCCA STR class setup as our ND Miata, which includes limit of 17x9 wheels and running less than that will usually mean not placing well. There are also minimum treadwear rules, 200 for STR class. That set of 255 tire was fast choice for time attack event where 220 was the treadwear minimum, video of our ND Miata using every bit of those tires below.


For street canyon fun I would indeed limit the width to 8 inch width, no more than 235/40/17 tire...which is what you see below. We could use less than 235/40 tires on that 8 inch wide wheel, and turn-in response would be better with something like a 215/45 or 215/40... but then you are risking curb rash on the 8 inch wheel and ride. For those reasons and more (including ride comfort), we usually suggest non-racing but fast driving street enthusiasts go for 17x8 with 235/40/17 as shown below on our Fiat 124...and further below on my wife's new ND RF. My wife retired from racing, still knows how to push it in the canyons and appreciates the extra grip.





About a hundred competitors at first BMW CCA event of the year last Saturday, these were the four fastest cars, all on 9 inch wide wheels.

Love the look of the Bronze 6UL's...they look great.


Question, for those of us with stock Abarth rims; What is the biggest tire we can fit? Thinking about a 225/45/17...
