I'm just saying that when I ran these tires, it was night and day from the stock tires.

38mm offset

use this site to determine what tire size to get.

I don't know of anyone running 8" wide rims here so you are on your own.

Low profile tire handling is commonly misunderstood. There are many dynamics to tire performance.
the reason why you dont see low profile tires in nascar is because of the rules.
