I have a take-off set of OEM 18" wheels (8.0 fronts / 9.5 rears) I want to put track tires on and was wondering if I should go with 245/275's or 235/275's with the NTO1's? I'm questioning how the 245's on the 8.0" wheels will wear with hard driving at DE's.

I appreciate the suggestions and advice, thank you!:)

245/40-18 NT-01s work great on the 8" OEM front, 275/40-18s work great on a 9" rear.

We have run them hard without issue.

Cheers,

I ran 245/40 F and 275/35 R Toyo R888 with no problems. I wore out the rears way before the fronts. Has anyone tried a MPSC 285/30 on the rear with a stock 9" width?

Try to get the max negative camber on the fronts that you can (with stock suspension) to improve the wear.

245/40 F and 275/35 R doesn't mess up the PSM because of the rear diameter is much smaller and thus rotates faster then the fronts?
I always thought the PSM would see it as wheelspin?

Nope, I've been running that setup for a little while both on and off track with no issues. Obviously I have PSM disabled on track but no issues on the street either.
