Anyone lowered on Mickey Thompsons?

I have these spring caps sitting here and have been thinking about maybe springs instead even but realizing with RSI twin turbo tire is going to be key. Is anyone running that 345/35 on 18 wheels lower than OEM? Would be curious to see if it rubs or hinders anything.

Thanks!

It may depend on the wheel offset, and you shouldn't lower it more than 3/4". With the Kinesis wheels I had, no issues with MT 345/35/18.

I don't know...but we can find out.


We need to get some vids before/after your turbo setup with my GTS. It would really be a good way to show the power it picked up with the boost.

By the time your car exits my garage....it's going to be a whole new beast.

It's just a baby turbo setup on a 100% stock car...it's not going to be a 1000rwhp+ monster. Saying that, it will still be a fast street car. 700rwhp/800rwtq is plenty for the street.

I would say 2 weekends should be good, the gauges and shift light will take time and mainly just pulling the stock stuff out. After that it is bolt and go so I am with you on the timeframe of two weekends.

I was running those exact tires on my lowered GTS turbo.
I still have them mounted on SSR rims if interested.

Fit with plenty of clearance on mine with the ACR dynamics spun all the way down on CCW 18x13. Never rubbed for the 2 days I putted around on them.
