Pics for those new to the Beretta forums and others who have not seen this before...





Got new Sumitomo HTR Z's on Front... the rears are used BFG's. Rears will get Sumi's at a later date.

205 / 55  from Tirerack.com if you're wondering.

Did they bolt up with no need to mod anything? Is the speedo still right?

It's a 16" X 7" GM wheel.

Why would it not fit or affect the speedometer?

The complete tire and wheel package is what would possibly cause a fluctuation depending on the overall diameter of the wheel and tire.

Actually, I'm pretty sure that's a 6" wheel.

You may be right.

Buddy Tim has them on his Cavy, and as I recall he wouldn't put 225's on them.

On my 90 I would have had to change the steering knuckle and the strut to make 16's fit if I remember right. That may have been for the bigger rotors. I know for sure that the strut splash guard was too big on the older cars to use the those rotors, I wasn't sure if there had been a change to the newer cars to make it bolt up. I guess that I should have asked Mike what size rotor he was running, sorry.
