Depends on the offset of those 18x8s. 45 or higher offset and they shouldn't rub

It depends on driving to, clutch dumps make something slip whether it be clutch or tires, something has to give. I hate going to a puck clutch on these cars because with my full face I have plenty of feel to work the clutch to keep spin minimal and cut good launches. Also if you're changing the rear diff controller to full rear that will prevent the car from sending extra power to the front and help prevent the spinning in the rear.

+1.......... i think they were just trying to sell a low end tire brand, and they seem to be marketing these to the tuner market.

RE-11 or Michelin PS2. FTW.

If your on a budget, RE760s. If you want a A/S tire, RE960s. Ive had/have them all and they are great performers. Like with most products people shop based on price, they probably have a larger profit margin on these and move them like crazy simply on price and a snazzy review.

You are correct sorry about that one

Now here is the thing though, it being an open diff once it lets loose power will continue to go to those wheels.
