    Good god I'm sick of hearing that. Go get some fucking 12" rims then and you'll run 9s.....

    I know all about rotational inertia and I say go fuck yourself. (not you in particular sleeper CRX) I just don't see that big of a difference between 15 and 16. Especially if you get the proper tire size. The big difference is when you go from 14 to 17 or 15 to 18. From a 15 to a 16 I bet NONE of you could tell the difference. Sorry, I'm just :rant:

    i went from 14 to 17 and dropped .02 on my 1/8th mile time.

    no matter what it looks like on paper or whose theory says what. 1" more on your rim size is not gonna slow you down.

    i dont want this to turn into a rotational mass argument. but look at it this way. your wheel/tires is gonna be the same size cause if you get bigger rims then youll get smaller tires.
    either way the total diameter is gonna be what around 18"
    so if you have a 15" rim, then you have 3 inches of rubber and air
    17" rim you have 1 " of rubber and air, sure the metal might weigh more, but the rubber and air thats on the 15 will make up for the difference in rim weights.
    as long as you dont have 30lb 17's i dont see what the big deal is.


    someone photoshop those for me, i wanna know how theyd look :worthy:
