Carrera lights with 295 MPSC rears

My new autocross setup. 225/40-18 front and 295/30-18 rear MPSCs on Carrera Lights.
Added 23mm H&R spacers to the rear. There's a good amount of clearance at the shock tower, but they stick out a little. The car is stock height non-M030.
I set the H&R rear bar on full stiff to help pivot with those 295s on.
Will go with a slightly narrower in the rear when I burn through these.

I'm surprised that you were able to fit 295''s on the rear. But then again, you're at stock ride height . If you lower the vehicle some, I think you'll have a clearance problem. Anyway, best of luck - tear up the track !

Too wide....

It turns out they are too wide for track use.
Tore up the left rear shoulder on Turn 3 at NHMS:

Full compression on the track will do that to too wide tires. At least u can get away with the wider look on the street.

That sucks. Those are expensive tires. Can you roll the fender lip? Will that help?
