    Wow, that looks great. What size tires did you go with. Are the Alcoa's 20x9 and 20x10? Thanks

    Tire Size

    Went with 285/35/20 (20x10) back; 265/35/20 (20x9) front; Michelin PSS. Thanks all - I think she really is the very definition of "bad ass" - you should see it in person. I've been tracking her at VIR - I eat Vettes, Camaros, Porsches and M5s for lunch!

    Quick question... assuming you bought new tires to go with the wheels, why did you not increase tire / wheel width? I can't get any traction with these 285s...

    What tires and suspension are you running? I had changed to 285 Michelin PSSs with the stock wheels, combined with Reven Racing's handling package. Big pickup with traction and handling over Goodyear's with stock suspension. I think this is the perfect balance for me. I really wasn't interested in going too wide, even though some people are going with the 10 inch up front and widening the 9 inch for back to 11.75. Some concerns with rubbing and clearance. Mine are one size up from what SVT originally recommended for the Super Snake with these wheels. No real science to my answer - but I'm very happy with my choice.
