    talk about tough classes, yours (SM) is even worse
    Yes I know, tough class to start autocrossing in, that's for sure. NICE wheels. What kind of rubber are you going to run next year? What size are you putting on those bad boys?

    I'm looking to go as wide as I can next year. I would love to run 17x9 on 275's. From what I've read, I will definitely need to roll the fenders, even though I'm on coilovers? I'm just not sure how I would roll my rear fenders as it seems that the plastic lip in the rear fenders arches are in the way.

    I'm 99% sure I'll go w/ Dunlop Z1 Star Specs- it's almost become the defacto ST* tire for heavier cars, 245 is the max for AWD so I'll run 245/40/17's

    yup you'll definitely need to roll the fenders for 275's & 9" wheels (coilovers or not), there should be an easily removable strip at the rear wheel arches, then you basically just flatten the 90 degree portion of the arch- it's pretty easy to do w/ the right tool and a heat gun (want to keep the paint warm while rolling)- some guys have had great luck w/ a baseball bat

    this is where I've rented the tool in the past

    That's like rubbing salt in the wound... I haven't had the pleasure of running with Hoosier's yet, or even any r-comp tire. Now I'm on the prowl.

    Found this as I was going through some photos that I took at Divisionals this past year.
