    Is there anyway you can measure the width of your tire for me
    On there website it says
    305/35/18
    26x12.50r18
    Than it also says sect. Width in. 12.2
    So I’m not sure what the true size is

    Toyo says 315/35/18 is 12.5” but I think it’s bigger gonna measure when I get home

    Yes, sketchy in the rain. Not super wide for the tire size. Haven’t tried their drag radial but have used the NT01, good when warm. But extra wheel hop. Poor traction when cold

    I've been running them for years. Guess I'm weird in that I don't find them sketchy in the rain. I ran them daily for a long time too.

    Measured mine last night and they look like no wider than 12.2 to me.

    So I went with a 305/35 nitto 555r and rolled the fender again and pushed it up nice and tight. I did notice when I had the rear jacked up and both tires where off and suspension was unloaded that my springs had a lot of play in them I was able to move them up and down freely is this normal on coil overs? I’ve never had them on any car before. So I made sure the springs where seated securely before putting the tires on and dropping the car down. I took it for a quick 20 min ride and wow night and day difference in the ride. The car handled all the bumps so much better and so far no rubbing. So I’m thinking that I have been driving around with the springs not properly seated and that is where my issue came from. I had bought some Rovos awhile back figured it was time to put them on and switch it up.

    I ran NT555R's for the longest time when I drove my Cobra a lot. Brand new they did fine in the rain.
