Falken 512's, but thats the only tire I have a lot of experience stretching. I keep buying all the leftovers.

falken 512's stretch great because they are made with less tire...a 205 from anyone else is always wider then a 205 falken 512

but they still always look great
i personally loved dunlop sp9000's when i was stretching a lot but they are $$$ to get

Falken 512's are all I've dealt with, but I think they're great due to price, how the stretch looks, and the ride.

Only issue is balancing them. I have god knows how many weights on my wheels now and I've heard from others the same problems. Not the best for a more open faced wheel IMO.

Dunlop SP9000



troof. They have the best look hands down IMO but are very spendy.
I run zris

Toyo Proxe T1R's
Hankook Ventus V12's

I've had pretty good experience with stretching Kumho MXs...went through 6 with my SC. 235/35s on 10.5s, never had any problems. They look dope and are cheap too...

I've found Nitto NT555s run pretty wide. 235 on a 9.5 barely stretches, while the same sized Toyo Proxes 4 is pretty narrow and has quite a bit of stretch on the same size wheel.

Personally, there's no special favourite. You choose the amount of stretch you want, and pick your tires accordingly.

So far I have good results with Falken FK452, BFG profiler G, Dunlop SP9000, Uniroyals 195/45-14, cant remember the name now......

452s are good for stretch, as are Bridgestone Potenzas.
My favs are defo 912s, they have the smallest sidewalls compared to other brands in the same size.

i have a 235/40 fk452's on an 11", drove on the highway for about 10 miles @ around 80mph, got home and noticed they were flat, when i went to put air the guage didnt register any psi. Not that i recommend this, but it happened to me and they held up fine.

No probs man. The 912s are great value too.

Im running that size up front right now, with a ZEIX 912. Your best option would be to run 195/45/17 but it would prob be more expensive. I can't put a pic up right now but with my fronts there is a bit of stretch.

Seeeriously, I found em for $55 a tire. Not bad unless theres a better deal somewhere else...?

i've heard good things about stretching nankang ns2 (might be going to these next)

but absolutely do not stretch federal ss595 -- they're wide as fuck.

if you can find st115 falkens theyre the shit.

most people here have most of em covered.

if you plan on running camber you can try out nitto neogen. they are made for camber wear. they stretch fine

Toyo T1Rs. i have had them in numerous sizes and on different wheels. their previous name was T1S's which also where great for stretching. i would only run these tires. when you can trust a stretched tire with a $4k set ofwheel then you know its a good tire.

i've had great experiences with falken 452's, toyo t1r, and falken ziex 912. The Falken ziex 912 is actually the newer model of the 512 if I remember correctly. Getting a set of 912's installed as I type :)

Oh and another cool thing with the ziex 912 is that it's unidirectional....So if your on a budget and have bad camber wear.....Well you can always flip them
