Default TIRE CLEARENCE

HOW MUCH WILL A 34.5 X 17" SLICK GROW @ 200MPH?
I AM BUILDING A CAR AND I AM JUST ABOUT READY FOR WELL TUBS.
NOT SURE WHAT SIZE WELL TUBS I NEED TO USE.
THANKS

Default Shock and bump travel too

Goodyear has some that grow 1 1/2" per 100 MPH and some harder compounds grow a little less near 1" per 100 MPH.

IMO i would set the tubs 3" min. from top of tire. That way you may want to try differt ones.

Tire clearance should ALWAYS take into consideration of FULL suspension COMPRESSION, as well as tire size and growth.
