  1. Stretched Tyres

    i'm guessing you have less profile on the 18's! there aren't many 225/45 in 18's but there are plenty 225/40,35 so it results in even more stretch and less sidewall which is why you're probably loosing alot of grip when you power out or you've transfered too much weight to the rear tyres where as when you were on 17's you had the extra profile/sidewall for it to give you that bit of flex to grip a little more my recommendation is to go for 245/45 if you're running a stiff suspension set up otherwise soften up your rear suspension
  2. Stretched Tyres

    well the reason why i stretch my tyres is for it to break out easier and when it does the car is alot more flat because there is no sidewall flex! and what happens when you limit sidewall flex? you end up working your tread harder don't you? and when you work your tread harder what happens? do the maths can anyone tell me why this guy is loosing grip? here's a hint, there's not much to do with tyre width
  3. Stretched Tyres

    you scretch you loose grip it's that simple, that's why drifters stretch their tyres! if you look at the time attack cars at super lap the smallest size tyre i saw on a 10 inch was 265
