If they're directional (most good tires are iirc) you'll have to unmount them to move them left to right anyways. Depending on your driving style I would imagine front to rear wear could be different.

I'm looking to run enkei classic compe's in 16x8 +25 offset. Tire rack says they fit, but only with a 205/50r16 tire. Is that really all you can fit? I'm going to be installing coilovers at the same time, just crazy to think that's all you can stuff under there

They fit. I run them with 225/45/16 star specs. No spacers.

Yea that is the reason I have not gotten a BBK yet is because I like to run 15's because track tires are more affordable in those sizes. Stock brakes are pretty undersized for the track but not the worst I've experienced believe it or not. I'm going to try and experiment with cooling ducts and upgrade to 185 brakes first before considering a BBK.

That is awesome, wish they had a better tire selection in that size. They only make track tires it seems

Yea 16's seem to be dying off. 15's and 17's have so many more choices. I personally think that 16's are perfect size on the 165 chassis but that is just my taste. Who knows though, maybe I wont be able to get that tire size in the future so I'll be forced to go to 17's haha.

Antera Type 109's. I think they wrapped with Federal 205/55/16. 16x7.5 I'll have to double check.

They are so ugly that they are amazing. Need to lower the coils a bit.

Does anyone lift their 165? That's what I have done. Wondering about a good gravel/dirt road tire that can be driven every day. I plan on using 15 inch wheels.
