    Read this thread, very good reason why you should get smaller tires

    Good article
    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.



    EDIT...

    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.

    Just to make sure would a GSR brake set up in a 5G hatch fit with 15" slipstreams?

    That is wrong in so many ways. It looks like a circus car.

    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.

    :lol: 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.
