the h2 rule should be if it fits your wheel well run it , pick your chassis and maximize/tune it ....easy to tech/racer police, the limits of each car are well known.....as in any amateur series, the more the rules, the more reason's cars don't show. Is H2 a tuners series or a spec series..... or is someone just not happy they can only get a 225 under there crx or civic.....again why make changes.....what purpose is really behind this new rule out of the blue.....that's the rub for me.

GRM just did an article where a 225 tire on a 15x8 was not any faster than a 205 on a 15x8, but the same 225 of a 15x9 was 0.5 second faster than the 225 on the 15x8.

I would like to see 15x8 available to all classes, and at least H2.

15x8... that's a lot of people having to change things AND!!!!!...

makes more sense than PUSSY HP CAPS but like someone said in another post... lets quit changing things and have some stability in the rules.


BTW HP CAPS are lame.

so i just starting running 15x7 and had some 205 r6 to wear out and man it felt sloppy compared to a 8, felt like a wet noodle flopping around jumping 3 at RA, i could actually feel the front left tire fold under with 3.4 camber, i can not imagine what a 225 would feel like on a 7
but dont change the rules yet i just got some 15x7 TE37 to run for H2 recently

I agree that leaving the 7" rule is a good idea since most of us have investd in expensive wheels and some chassis can't use a wider wheel.

As far as the fitment: Keep in mind that the Toyos need to run at higher pressures than Hoosiers. Plus, a Hoosier 205 is as wide as a Toyo 225.

They wouldn't need to mandate a 8" width, but they could ALLOW it for folks who already have 8" wheels.

But, what about the people who already have 8+ 7in wheels.

The rule has been seven for how long? I'd be thoroughly pissed if it went above 7 because then I'd have to buy 8 more wheels just to fit the "max" of the class. Like mentioned above, why not keep the stability in the class? Keep changing rules, I'll just find a Miata and have fun in PTE.
