The tire stretch database.

lately there has been alot of more aggressive fitments popping up, and alot of concern over the safety, appearance and difficulty of stretching tires. This thread should serve as a reference to those wondering what certain tire sizes look like on other rim sizes, and also, what brand tires were used on the set-up.

Here is the format. Please stick to it! Anyone who wants to argue the validity or safety of stretched tires can take it to pm. I DO NOT WANT TO SEE IT IN THIS THREAD! I understand that this thread may closely overlap the wheel fitment thread. If so, just let me know so I can get it closed.
Make sure to rate your stretch and put in any pics you have. stretch is rated 0-3 with 0 being perfectly flush, and 3 being a quarter between the tire bead and the rim lip.

Your entry should look like this:


Wheel size- F18X9, R18X10
Tire size- F215/35zr18, R215/40zr18
Tire brand- Federal SS595
Rate your stretch: F-1, R-2.2

See The Slammed / Aggressive **WHEEL FITMENT** thread for anything else other than tire stretch.

fender mods have to do with wheel selection more than tire size.

I can see you're a fully contributing member... 39 posts in 11 months and ^ this was one of them.

Tyrestretch.com doesn't specify *which* tires were used 99% of the time, which is an integral part of tire stretching.

Cool... I understand you're not trying to start anything. I don't have any issues with you. The entire point of this thread was so that you could see the stretch/fitment and how it's being applied to IS300's. No more for me to say

Yes they are very good tires for the price, and the stretch very nicely. i got mine for only 80 a piece shipped.
