Default Where to start with alignment for 13's

I have some newly acquired Panasport C8's and Hankook Z214's for the track this year. I ran 949's alignment settings for the sad amount of track days I did last year and found them to be nearly on the money. However that was on 15's.

Since they measure at the pinch weld, theoretically the same alignment settings should be a good starting point with the 13's?

Anyone else here run 13's?

Running 550lb/350lb springs for now (soon 700/450 when the funds allow) on SD re valved bils, Racing Beat hollow on the front and stock in the rear.


Oh, and please don't make this thread an argument as to why 15's are better. I wanted to go this way because I mainly do sprints and autoX. Couldn't beat the deal I got on the wheels + the weight was a big factor (8.7lbs) and the cost+weight of tires.

A friend of mine used to run 13" panasports with tires he bought used from motorcycle side-cars. He said they were really strange to get used to, but they had good grip and were cheap (for race tires) so he used them for a couple years.

Sorry I'm no help on alignment.
