who auto-x's an FC?

Right now I auto-x my subie wagon, its a pretty competetive local SM car. Next year I think I want to try out the FC, get into SM2. I was wondering what kind of setup others are using? I am going to run R compounds for sure. I wonder if I should use a staggered setup, and what the largest size I can fit under the car?

235f/265r under stock fenders. But dont forget to get coilovers, good brakes, etc.

Oh, and dont forget DTSS eliminator bushings!

I use carbotec xp's on my subaru, they are great and I will be using them on the rx-7 as well. I need to get the DTSS eliminator bushings in over winter. Is there a way, or kit, to take out some of the negative camber in the rear?
As for tires, 235 is all that will fit up front? I was hoping to run a 245 at the minimum.

Yeah theres Camber stuff for the rear, if you dont get one (I forget what its called exactly) lowering the car too much causes some pretty extreme negative camber in the rear.

But then again youre not gonna put LOWERING springs on it, are ya? Youre gonna go with coilovers for handling, right?

Also, 235's up front is plenty if its good tires. You do realize this is a FC, not a camaro, right? :P

Uh i drove a friends T2 at the local event today. No powersteering, driverside rear brake didnt work and kept locking the driverside front, 225 kumho supras, and 330whp.... it was interesting to say the least. Close to dead last in SM2.
