Guy never posted back up?

only problem I have w/ Spam's post is about the 15" size...16" have their use if they are light enough. Less sidewall flex and can still fit a decent sized tire without being to large.

Well, I've been talked to before for spouting off about suspension/tire **** that I'm clearly not very knowledgable about... but for the money, this is arguable the best tire/wheel deal around: http://www.good-win-racing.com/Mazda...21-1045fs.html He's got 215 series as well for $72 more per set if you need the extra contact patch.

You're right, for absolute performance, there is an argument for 16's. But I'm gonna say to get any benefit, you're going to need to spend almost double the $$.

You can get 215 series Heliums/T1-R's AND Ground Control Coilovers AND RB sways for the price of just their cheapest 16" tire/wheel package. For a street car, and for the money, 15's are the ticket... especially when you're talking about giving a newb advice on what to buy.

asks for advice and you all answer by asking how old he is. lol. good one guys! great thread!!


if you ever post back up, spend some time looking through company catalogs, and spend even more time checking out lots of diy setups. decide how much power you want and what you want to do with the car.

once you decide those im sure we can help you out.

CSM, WTF are you talking about? Not a single post here mentions his age and for now I'm steering him clear of any power mods. Was this meant for another thread?

Very true...I just picked up my c8s w/ doable azenis 615s on them for 200 bucks...and I still have a brand new wheel...they aren't perfect cosmetic wise, but much cheaper than new.

For the new argument, your completely right. 15s are the ticket.
