Thanks, but it still has the same issue (but at least gives a bit more sidewall with 18"). Can a 265 stretch over a 8.5" wheel?

Also, the R1's are a track tire. Bad choice for autocross since they'll stay cold and never reach their potential. 18" wheels also have another couple weird issues. Autocross compound tire selections are worse than you find in 19" sizes for us. 245's or 285's with nothing in between. 18" wheel selections are also rather lacking for something I'd want to drive on half the year when winter tires get mounted on them.
