I'm running 275/60's & have BMR 1" springs.. I just had to roll the fenders.. I'm using Spohn non-adjustable lca's & the tires are pretty centered with no clearance problems. But I'm also on a 9" Convo pro rim w/ 6.5 bs. The 10" rim w/ a 7.5 bs might need the bump stops trimmed & inner fenders hammered if you're lowered.

if your a 6spd car or an auto with a t brake then a 28. if your an auto with no trans brake, then a 26. i have an auto with no t brake and a 28 just lowered my 60ft times. if you dont have the force of dumping the clutch then a 28 will slow u down imo. its just to tall of a tire and needs that force from a 6spd or t brake to get it going.

I disagree that 26" would be the way to go with his car. A supercharged car with 4.11's is not going to have any problem getting out of it's own way. My recommendation would be a 28" tire for sure. Otherwise you're sure to run out of gear at the top end.

i agree with a 28 i personally have a 26 in my car with 373s if i spin off the line in i red line the car at the end. if it dead hooks i finish the pass at the very top of my 3rd gear. you will be out of gear in a a4 car with a 26 and 411 gears.

I was told dont use tubes unless you use screws in the rim to prevent the tire from spinning or you could rip the valve stem of the tube & there goes all your air pressure. Tubes also add more weight.
