Read this thread, very good reason why you should get smaller tires
Good article part 2
from that one thread the guy was wondering why le mans cars have 17's, 18's ect. this explains most of it.
Also try this. Get a long stick/pole ect like a push broom or something. First try and raise it and try and spin it using your hand as the axis (center) by holding the very end of it, it is kinda hard right? Now hold it in the center and try and spin it. Much easier right? Now when you go to 17's and 18's, your putting more mass towards the outside of the wheel and it is harder to spin. That will eat up your trq, you go slower off the line.
I like the 15-inch Slipstream. Light weight, and sleak looking!
Just to make sure would a GSR brake set up in a 5G hatch fit with 15" slipstreams?
i voted 15's
i also wrote both of the atricles on wheel weight
and yes the GSR brakes will fit under the 15" slips
15x7 owns j000!
who ever clicked 17 is a :fr:
That is wrong in so many ways. It looks like a circus car.
i wanna see him hit a speed bump at fifteen.Cd player prolly skips.
way to get rid of wheel gap ey??? :ghey:
What was he smoking the day he went to the wheel/tire shop? Someone please let me know what it was so I stay away from it.
-I say 15-inch also. Get some 45 series tires and they'll look real sweet if you have like a 2 inch drop.
LMAO @ that pic! he must need 300lbs of torque just to get them rolling!
as for the wheel sizes, it depends on your goal. if you are going for performance, go 2in. larger than stock. if you are going for show, go 3 or 4 inches larger than stock.
