Thanks
With the TCKR you will have one of the most clearance out of all the coil over currently available out there. I believe we ran as weir as a 18x10.5 with a 5mm spacer so you may be okay with a 10" depend on how wide the tire run.

I'll be running 275-35-18 supersports??

What size of tyres are on your 10.5 and what's the wheel offset?

I'm curious on your opinion about how these compare to the Ohlins R&T coilovers. Seems like they are both good dual purpose street/track coilovers that tend to be focused on overall balance rather than all-out performance.

That being said, is there a compelling case to go with the TC Kline's over the Ohlins or vice-versa?

Neither one of these give up much performance on the track vs. external reservoir two-way coilovers, but their street manners are far better with superior ride quality. Not to mention these are less than half the price of those kits aimed at track performance only.

My honest opinion is that it's a toss-up between the two. Ohlins is a monotone technology with dual flow vale and expanding needle technology for great damping control, less damper fade and blow off at high shaft velocities, but lacking double adjustability. TCKR has double adjustability with motorsport derived valving package in a very streetable package, but don't have the same damper precision and control because of the twin tube design.

PM, email or call me if you have more specific questions.
