Depending on your wheel and tire setup you should be fine with a simple rolling of the fenders.

Unfortunately, I'm not willing to go to these lengths for traction. I need to find another alternative.

Im guessing you have an HPF kit? I would probably say you have to go with a MT tire to get traction. You can go 275/40/17 or the 305/35/18 and get decent traction without much fender work. However you must have the right offset of wheels.

I'm only going to be home for a couple weeks, so I'll bear with the lack of traction on my PS2s for now. I'll definitely be following everyone's wheel/tire reports until I come home again next March. By then, hopefully some more info is available to make a good decision. I know Scott had success with his setup and Mike likes his.
Keep us posted on yours!

I'll definitely give a review after my trip home. Don't think I'll get to it while I'm home, though. My time is going to be very limited and I plan on doing some serious driving and partying. Separately, of course. I'm going to the Skip Barber High Performance driving school at Lime Rock in August. Hope to learn some things. I ordered a GoPro HD camera for a trip I'm planning in the hills where I hope to find some good roads. It'll be my first attempt at a vid, so I hope it turns out well. Gonna try to get some 60-130 runs in, too.
The anxiety is killing me.

Ive tried plenty of setups. You can easily go with a set of 275/40/17's with hardly any fender work, if any. It all depends on your suspension and wheel offsets, but you can get away with fenders with no mods at all with those tire sizes. The other option is the 305/35/18 MT tire some of the guys are running, you just have to get a wheel with a 30 offset or so. That might require a rolling of the fender. The 295/45/17 will require cutting/shaving. I think as far as traction goes i listed the tires from least to best. The 275/40/17s should hook for your car in 2nd gear and up when they are deflated and new enough.
