Why don't you try roadsterdrift or clubroadster? They're a bunch of 002 fanboys.
205 width at the least.

Keep the +0 **** over at CR.net. We like offsets that make the car handle well.

I have 225/45-15s on mine, but I also have the fenders cut. Without rolling/cutting the fenders, you will have to go with a 195-205 stretched on the rim and it will look gay.

I'm running 0 offset wheels on my track car. Based on your statement, I guess I need to start looking at different wheels so my car will handle.
