    I can't seem to find any made by a reputable manufacturer? I want to run 245 section tires up front on my teg and want the correct wheel size.

    Nope, so they can put 300lb-ft to the ground without burning up. :p

    :lol: Yup, maybe i asked too soon. I saw that Volk and RH made a few, but i'm spending all my dough on my engine so i'm on more of a "rota" type budget. I found some Enkei's that i like for not TOO much. So thanks. :D

    spoon (desmond) makes a 16x8? and in a 4x100 38-43+ off set (assuming thats what he has on his integra)? just curious, never heard/seen it from them.

    and as for being on a rota style budget, might be hard to get that size on that budget concidering most companies that do make it are $$$. might want to look into black racing they make a 16x8 4x100 for FF's about 220-250 a rim.

    edited: to add desmond

    its pointless.
    im going to have way more power than you are, and im running a 205, maybe a 215 TOPS

    its quality of the tire/traction, not quantity

    15x7s
    205/50/15
    good f00king tire

    see my poll in the wheel/tire forum

    im not sure yet

    but for track use, im going to buy a set of te-37 13x8s and have full slicks on them :)

    i'm trying to find someone to go in on a set with me... i only need 2- and its cheaper to buy all 4

    wow, cool, didnt realize they offered that size. good to know

    wider is better tho =P depends on wut u are using it for. u'd be suprised at the number of circuit civics that run 15x7.5 and 16x8 up front. using 225+ race slicks. a little over kill unless u are already using a 15x7 205 to the max already. as for drag racing i got nothing to say, cause i dont know anything
