    Greg was telling me at the DC Pro that he registered but is going to cancel.

    Maybe we should all try to "influence" his decision to go.

    Just to throw out some numbers on gearing... the 235/40 has an OD of 23.4", 23.7" for the 245/40. That's a difference in radius/lever of 0.15", almost 5/32 of an inch, so it's about the same difference in OD as a fully treaded tire and one shaved to 5/32.

    Fixed your dimensions.

    Agreed, the difference IMO is pretty negligible. I even think the difference in width (~0.25) is pretty negligible as well.

    Bring her out too. She can hang out with my wife.

    Whoops, thanks. Some wishful thinking at work...

    If the tire companies would just release the 245/35's...

    I had the same thought, but a 245/35/17 should have an OD of about 23.8". This *might* be a touch to short of a tire. You would lose about 3 mph from the top of second.

    I would definitely like to try one though.

    They should fit fine. I did a little test today at a local event and I added 5mm spacers to the rear of the car to simulate about where the 245 tires would be. Now, granted the diameter is a bit taller, but I didn't have any problems with rubbing.

    Dunlop is backordered on the Star Specs, with no production run scheduled until August. I'm not sure what I'm going to do.

    Popular tires ...

    I still have 7 - 8/32" on mine.

    both 245/40 and 235/40? that sucks, they are clearly underestimating the popularity of the tire

    I didn't check TireRack for the 235/40, they had 11. I have 4 currently on their way. *whew*

    So, it looks like Dunlop made up my mind for me on the 235 vs. 245 debate.

    Dunlop is backordered in both sizes.
