Dont tell me its not an issue, Ive watched it.
heaps of people here (mainly drifters) run stretched tires and i've never seen one come off, even when using yum cha brand tyres. i had a bit of stretch on the front on my last car using reasonable tyres (toyo proxes 4 215/45 on a 17x9" rim) and i had no issues with grip, and i had more road feel than when i was running the same size tyre on a 17x8" rim. i could have fitted a 225/45 tyre, but at $80 a tyre extra for a 5% increase in contact patch, it wouldn't be worth it. going wider isn't always the best if you are sacrificing decent compound for a slightly larger compound patch. on the rear you don't want stretched tyres, but you don't want bulging tyres either or the car will wobble. my mr2 came with 225/50 tyres on a 16x6" rim on the back and it felt terrible. i've now got 16x7" rims on the back with 205/45 tyres and it handles a lot better.

I've noticed something, to run stretched tires most people reccomend a higher psi than a tire of the proper sizing... I know in my car, if I keep the tires up where they are the happiest, they tend to also give an increase in road feel. I honestly have to wonder if this isn't just bogusness brought on by most ricer drivers not realizing the difference 50psi in a tire makes vs. 30psi in terms of overall tire rigidity. I can also see a another reason for all the extra pressure when you spread a tire like that you concave the contact patch, so you push the pressure up to make it go slightly convex.

i ran 34psi in my tyres, same with all the wheels i had. i experimented a bit with tyre pressures, anything significantly less made the tyre sloppy, anything significantly more made it too hard and reduced grip.

Was testing the 3.2mpixel camera on my new Palm Pre. Not too shabby. All I've done is crop it.
