TThose tire will be perect but don't put too much front chamber on your car those tire seem to wear the onside shoulder with over 1' of chamber. Invest in a decent chamber gauge.

I don't know about toe and camber gauge but i would think it would work. A TC6 has hex screws.

Yes... mostly 2mm hex but some of the 1.5mm hex screws are a bit loose so they fit a 1/16 hex better. Your guages should be ok in a pinch.

Agreed on the 1/16. It was the only way I could get the ones holding the spur gear loose.

Does the AE titanium screw set fit any better?

You definatley want to change those screws out to cap heads ASAP. They will strip out very soon. I keep a supply on hand for all my local guys running the TC6. I got them from Mc Mastaer Carr. The size is M2.5 x 8mm socket cap head screw. I ordered like 100 in SS for about 6 bucks.

It's a 4WD Mini. Looks like an Atomic VMII according to the sticker on the hood.
