  1. most things have sold - first post is up to date. still got wheels and a few odds and ends

    good to hear you're getting back into it. looking forward to seeing the rebirth
  3. Track tyres and the size game

    Your wheel offset, and to a lesser extent your ride height, will be the determining factors of where and when your tyre scrubs. 235/40 is a very conservative size tyre to use on a silvia and can fit just fine. You're stressing over nothing here
  4. Track tyres and the size game

    I've had 235/40 and 255/40 NT01 tyres on 9" rims and to be honest there wasn't that much of a visible difference in the sidewall angle when fitted and on the car. not as much as I expected anyway. I think a 235/40 on a 8" rim would be ok, but it will be a bit sloppy compared to it on a 9" rim. that said, I remember one of the guys in QLD with the yellow silvia (SC_180 or something arather) had 255/40 all round on 9" rims with no issues, so going by that your 235 on a 8" rim will probably be fine

  6. Where do you buy all your parts from?

    Just jap goes alright too for some things that TAARK or Kudos dont have. They're my 3 domestic choices before i go to jesse streeter for parts in japan or the US stores like mazworx or conceptz
