    Wheel size is a huge issue for autoX.

    What class are you planning to participate in, as that will ultimately limit your size ranges.

    That still doesn't give us much to work with. 98% of autoX is in a parking lot.
    there's still classes and rules to follow.

    If you change your stock rim size you'll get bumped up a class. If you read the SCCA Solo2 handbook it outlines what is legal for each class. Unless 14's were a factory option, you're going to need to go out and find some 13's (pretty hard to do, they're rare and usually ugly) to slap on there. I'm not sure about what the rules say about width, although I can tell you, you won't gain any time by slapping really wide tires on a stock CRX.
