  1. thanks for your thoughts.
    you might be right. not many logic reasons, to use wider tires. maybe shorter breakway, or curve stability. but that is not my point, because i dont use it as a racecar.
    aquaplaning is not on my list, because i never drive, when raining. car would get wet inside immediately.
    wider tires is more a optical thing. i think, on the rear wheels, it would look cool...thats all.

  3. I would like to see what it looks like.

    At some point I plan on an extra set of Miura rear wheels for the rear of my Jarama with some fatties mounted on them. I like the look. There is just way too much wheelwell on the Jarama.

    However, the Espada wheelwell is shaped different. Maybe a step up or two on the tire size will give a nice full look on the correct wheel.

    But always have a spare set when messing around with wheels/tires
     
  4. amc and Peter K. like this.
  5. See, the wheelwell/wheel arch can handle that.
    9x15? with the 255?

    2nd photo: Even the front wheels sit far inside.
     
  6. as you can notice the suspension has been raised to its maximum level to leave room for the tire to not touch the fender edge, not sure this will fit on an Espada rear fender...

  8. i finaly found the video with the 255/60 on espada. wheels are original s3,(notS1/2) but that doesnt matter. tires are not the c12 pirellis, but the size is 255/60.

  11. Interesting. Too bad there isn't an engine note that is as realistic as the 3D model of the car. I sure wish the steering effort on my S1 Espada was as effortless! And why did they have to make the doors squeak like that?? Still, it's good that the Espada is getting some attention.

  13. Hi Daryl,

    Have you thought about putting the electric steering on your car?
