@ayoustin what wheel specs are you running to fit a 315 under the stock body?
I'm running an 18x10.5 +30 wheel. The same wheel the RS guys ran on their evo when they shoved 315 tires under stock body. There is some chassis trimming involved to fit that wide of a tire. A 295 should fit without rubbing anything though.

Thought you would be using a wider wheel with a higher offset, for such a big tire.

There's not really a cheap 11" option that works on the evo and 11" is extremely hard to fit. 315 isn't too big for a 10.5, the 275 I run right now has a bit of stretch to it on the 10.5.

I'm buying wheels and tires today. I wouldn't suppose these arms are ready?
😂
Hopefully by the time I'm ready for my next set!

Dallas has shipped the prototypes to me and I should have them soon. About a month or so and we'll be filling the order the for first run as long as testing goes as planned.

I just bought wheels and tires, but will probably still purchase for future use. I can always sell my current wheels and go wider.

These are looking good. Definitely interested once they get given a good test run.

Got the arms in the mail a couple days ago! They're absolutely beautiful. Just have to get one small piece made and they're going on the car! Still need to find time for track days, I start a new job Monday so it maybe be a couple weeks before I can get to the track.

Haha, I'm hoping by the time I actually get them on the car I'll be ready for a track day. I'm already busy these next two weekends so even if they did go on now I'd have to wait anyway.

Just put them on the car today. Fitment is perfect, tons of tire clearance. Pics are with my 18x10.5 +27 w/275 tire. Have a track day coming up the weekend after next to shake them down.
