Well, I had a pre-purchase inspection by the head mechanic at a shop that does a lot of track prep. He's also a PCA event organizer.

I've had camber plates installed at another shop that does track prep (including a lot of alignment work), and they didn't note anything suspicious.

The miles on the car are consistent with the tire wear (original tires still on the wheels). The previous owner had another set of wheels on there for about a year, but I know he sold those. I guess he could have had a set in between...

No accident on the record, BTW.

I ran a set of 285/35x18's on ET25 rims on mine once and it was fine on the driver's side.
Front???

I'm pretty sure I've seen one or two others mention 275/35R18's rubbing in front. They seem like they just might work on a higher offset wheel.
