good call... I added that to the list.

I don't enroll people on my own. You'll notice the other guy running 265's isn't on the list yet as he hasn't asked to join the club yet... I'm more than glad to add him, but he's not here to appreciate it at the moment.

You're on the list now though.

Those two were exceptional cases. Ploney ran a 17x8 ET35 wheel which IMO is too far out and will cause quick destruction of the bearings. Raam did it right by going to a 5x114 setup with more durable bearings to handle the extreme offsets. He may have ran a 305 but don't quote me on it, the XT was short lived.

Yep - I'm pretty sure it was a 305 on a 10" wheel.

exceptional cases or not, if this record is to include those that have run bigger than 245's on a Foz (whether they still do or not now), then Ploney and Raam should be included for historical purposes. :)

Alright, so I did some digging.
Here is a picture of RAAM's 285/30-18 on an 18x10.5 ET30 soon followed by a 305/30-18
He also ran a set of 245/45-17 RE-01R



I also managed to dig up this picture of Ploney's 275/40-17 Kumho V710 setup and his 245/45-17 RT615 and 245/35-18 V710 setups

^^i'm going to expose my baller side and say that 20" rims look good on there with that nice drop...

Do you have some crazy lip on there, or is it an optical illusion?
