FWIW- My bro's Mustrade Cobra now runs the Sumotinywrestler HRT-Z 3's and loves them. I guess it was a decent improvement over the II's. I've driven his car and its pretty damn sweet. Nothing stood out that made me say hmmm ..but then again I was kinda busy trying to keep my eyeballs from getting sucked into the back of my skull...as well as the deafening shrill of the SC'r.

Stoopid fast car. 

The shot of my 5 w/ those 18x9.5 M Par wheels was w/ 265 35 18's and the that size Conti looked almost stretched. Most definitely not squared off.

265 40 should work...but 35 series will for sure. 

My 2 centavos.
