Default Want Discount Tire Direct on board?

Hey guys. Curious how many of you would be interested in having us come on board as a sponsor of the Wheel & Tire forum? Of course it will have its benefits. New product release info, technical help, occasional discounts/specials.

Please post your thoughts here. I'd love to spend more time here. You are a very well informed group that does a ton of homework on these cars. Gotta love the devotion!

I think that would be great specialy since many of us here have questions about tire and wheel sizes it would be of great help to us to have a company hold our hands and give us all the answers

Sure, but I would expect you to not interfere with any other tire or wheel posts/sales.

In other words:
I don't want to lose the ability to see post from your competetors private or commercial

Regards,
Ed

Definitly not. The other sites I work with...I will even recommend someone else if I dont have the ability to get the product yuo are looking for. Everyone has something different to offer. I just hope you like what I have, and what I will get in the future. I also would love to help you all out when you need a general or technical question answered.

Heres a technical question I havent had answered I was looking into getting some OZ Superleggera III's for my 350Z. Im looking for 18's in the similar size as original I dont want to get too whack a speedo reading but I also wanted 8.5 front and 9.5 rear, or maybe even 10 rear depending which would be better suited for the car, which would be the proper offset and tire size? Thanks for the answer if you answer

Most likely you would want to do the 18x8.5 up front with about a +35 offset and run the 245-45-18s. The 18x9.5 40 Offset and 275-40-18s in the rear. That will keep you within specs:
stock rear 26.68 modified rear 26.60
front to rear must maintain no less than 1/2" and no more than 3/4" difference to keep ABS, Traction control etc working correctly. The above set up puts you at .63" difference.

a similar set up would be...

18x8 up front 35 offset and 18x9 rear 38 offset Enkei RPM2. We've sold a couple like that.

Default What I am hoping for....

Many thanks to discount tire for offer expertise and product. What I hope you also do is have discount tires post pics of 350Z's they sell wheels. I created a thread for pics of wheels only so that is a good place to post them.

I know you have a large company and are putting many wheels on Z's. Many of us would love to see the various wheels on a Z. A lot of the wheels we look at in stores and webpages we have to guess at what it will look like on the car. Some wheels look good in a brochure but may not look as good on a particular car. Also, we can see the offset and my hope is you will include tires size/model, wheel manufacture +size & ft+ rear offsets.

Do others agree?

I have a Touring with 18s 225-45 front and 18s 245-45 rears! I am planning on going to 245-35-19s front and 275-35-19s rear!! Will this affect my ABS and Traction controls??? Thank you!!

I know you made a previous clause and I could accept your pressence assuming you don't discourage us from other vendors, products, or services not offered by DTD. As a matter of fact assuming those can be made, as I sure they will be, I think this is an outstanding idea.

With that said, is there any reason why DTD doesn't offer higher end more exclusive wheels? It seems that DTD is much like the tirerack and go for the bigger name lower to middle of the road cost wheels and ignore the high end stuff.
