Someone locally has a set of 4 of these tires for sale for a very good price. I’ve spoken to one person who has run these on the track and they had a good experience with them. Wondering if others have had a similar experience.

my other question is my wheels are only a 9.5. I’ve heard mixed reviews on whether or not a 295 will fit and be safe for track use.

295/35-18 really should be on at least a 18x10 wheel. Because its a 35 with a taller profile, it could fit on a 18x9.5 but it would not have a very good contact patch and would be fairly wobbly. Michelins are great tires but if they do tend to cycle out quite quickly, at least in my experience.

That is kind of what I had been thinking. Michelin recommends no less then a 10 inch wheel with a 295 but I wasn’t sure if that was a hard fast rule or more of a suggestion
