I've been hitting the search pretty hard on this subject, but I've still got some questions on this seasons setup.
The car is a 90
stock 1.6L NA
bilstein HD/ ebay coils (+2)
FIA seats/ belts/ extinguisher (-.5)
So I'm currently at +2.5.
Not installed yet; I also have a MS3 (+.5) and a 1.8L engine (+1.5)
That will bring me to +4.5
Wheel/ tire choices seem pretty thin:
15x9 with 225/45/15 Rs3's (+6) (I'd have to hold off on the 1.8L)
15x8 with 205/50/15 Star Specs (+3) (I could get fancy with the rear bumper, etc)
Suggestions for middle ground around +4.5 points? 15x8 with 225?
I know the RS3's want a 9" wheel to work on, but maybe the 8 would keep me in class. I'm currently on 15x8 with 195 Pirelli S-Drives- so I think it's time to step it up. This car isn't going to see much street use, so street wear isn't really a factor.
