      Stock hubs are > 5mm deep, so they touch the wheel with a 5mm spacer in between. It's not perfect, but it does offer some centering. Minimum spacer with a lip is 10mm. Ideal would be a 3mm spacer,...

      Nitto NT-01 have been on backorder for a year now. Methinks they are being discontinued.

      I've heard the same thing. At that price, might as well get Hoosiers and call it a day.

      I've thought of that, but worried they would roll or scratch the wheel face, even with covers. I was thinking of a jig with a pipe running through them with spacers.

      Yup. Counterweights and all. Don't see how that impacts the strut issue.

      On a side note, NT-01 has been unavailable for months. Any rumors on Nitto introducing a new tire?

      Agreed. But it's possible to hang a corner out on track days and fully extend the suspension. And those dampers are $$$ to replace.

      - Where did...
