As far as the V-dub stuff goes i looked into that and decided that 80 bucks a pop for tires that are .5" taller didn't really make me
Those are ELECTRIC cars. Think of the speed and distance duty cycles of those electric cars then think of the demands placed on their tires.

Consensus is for faster cars donuts are no good. There's no advantage anyway but several disadvantages.

VW tires: 135, 145, 165, 185 SR 15- those are all a hella lot more than +.5"dia.

Last year I was looking for 165s and found em for $25 ea at Pep Boys.
