    What is the best wheel and tire combo for a 93-94 del sol vtec. I hear anything over 17 on a del sol isnt worth it and size doesnt really matter much to me, i'd take 15s if the weight is good. Also, which tires do you guys ride. Price shouldnt be too high but i'm not going to ride on cheap rubber.
