HR31 chasing HR31.
Monday April 1 Marulan Driver Training Centre.
The camera is in Dans car, HR31 with RB25DET power, chasing me in my HR31 with RB20DET-R power.
I was trying really hard to get away.

The cars in question cooling down after a spirited chase, mine is black, Dans is white.

14's can work, you just have to be crazy low. i personally wouldnt go any smaller than 15's. 17 being the biggest i'd suggest for a 30 IMO. some 18's look ok, just depends on style of wheel. all just my opinion :wink:

here's my 15's

Or maybe just use a sensible tyre profile?

I've had tiny profile tyres on my 15s and it's just way too much of a bother firstly getting the car low enough so the guard gap isn't horrific, and then having to deal with the sump meeting the road all the time! (works 510 I feel your pain)

Already had to have the sump straightened on my sedan, it's back at a "normal" height right now but when it gets lowered again I'll definitely get a sump guard made up.

Think these are 16s...

tire size def matters. i have 225/60r 205/60f. i might go down to a 50, but increasing the width so it would somewhat even out depending on tire brand. prob end up with a 235/55r or 245/50r. maybe 205/50 or 55 front. i rub on full lock now, but a smaller sized tire would rectify that issue (or raising the car...but screw that :twisted: )

What tyre size in this pic, Orion?

But looking at all these super low DR30s gives me the willies! One interesting design feature of the DR30 is that the sump hangs about an inch below the crossmember, and it's fwd of the crossmember too, so is the first thing to ground on a steep bump or dip. So any of these slammed DR30s would be swapping sump paint with the road on a daily basis :)

When I got my sedan, it was so slammed that the sump was less than 40mm above the surface of the road.

not surprisingly there was already a nice big dent in the damn thing, and of course this interferes with the oil pickup something fierce - it makes a horrendous whining noise when cold (it's so loud, people always ask if I have a gilmer belt)

here's how low it was:

looks awesome! as much as i love the DR30 RS-X turboC with FJ20T power, this earlier HR30 blends that 80s boxy style with 70s flares and i can just imagine that throaty carbe'd n/a scream! super cool man.

I would think you could run zg flares and just cut them for the rear door.

195/60R15 (on 8" rims at the back, 7.5" up front). Would run this tyre size again in a heartbeat if our laws didn't make "stretch" somewhat illegal.

Old man kyteler and myself finally meet at OS Nationals:

Im looking to go to a 195/55.

Im thinking about tubbing mine,
have minimal castor and it rubs everywhere under lock.
Even the top rail under decent bumps.

(current wheel is 15x8 -9 with 195/60)

i'm seeing now half those sizes i mentioned don't even exist haha. sizes for 15's are shit. i may end up with a 275/50/15 for my rear and 235 up front. will have to bang out the front wells a bit, but not too much. my rear is ok now that i have non blown shocks haha. the 275 is .2 taller, but that's not bad
