I'm looking to get new tires all around was wondering if anyone has put bigger tires on the stock wheel? Stock is 285 can I fit a 295 or 300 on the rear?

You can do 305 only with R888R’s. With other remakes you can go up to 295 rear and 235 front. That’s currently what I am running with Sport Cup 2’s.

Any chance you can post pics of the overall look with the 295/235. Like to see how they sit. Im thinking of doing the same

I’ll be getting my car back from service tomorrow and I can take some pics. Honestly though it looks the same. There’s no overhang or noticeable visible difference from the stock tire size.

Ok. Dont bother too much. Was just curious. I thought the front may look a touch less 'stretched' over the rim as it kind of does with the 225. I also used to like the look of my wide 295's on the r8. Made the rear look 'fat'
Talking purely looks but would also enjoy the extra grip. I know mac particularly designed with these sizes so the car was fun and did slide around a bit.

Stick some Spacers on and up the rear width to 295 on stock wheels (I wouldn’t go any wider on the stock rims if you track the car )
It makes the 570s much more aggressive looking from the rear

Now that I think of it I know what you’re talking about. I’ll take some photos for you tomorrow.

Also... those of you who have added spacers onto the OEM wheels, please let us know the width and whether you needed new wheel bolts. And of course, pics are mandatory. 👁👁

I have these fitted to my 570s on Superlight Wheels.
They add to the handling on track and give the car a much more purposeful stance

Just installed the bigger Sport 4S tires and spacers. Front: 235/35/19 with 12mm spacers. Rear: 295/35/20 with 15mm spacers. Much more aggressive than stock. Because of taller side wall especially on rear, the fender gap is reduced and car looks lowered. Perfect!
