    Remember that not all 295/35-20" are the same width. Even within the Michelin line-up.

    The K1 Ferrari 295/35-20 MPSS is a little wider than the 305/35-20 MPSS.

    It might be a while. I bought it when I had the 295 and 275 tires as the car was a little low in the rear and I wanted to correct that.

    I read Adam Carolla has a similar lift to bring his Miura SV up into the living room.

    Good question.
