Re: 15x6.5 +15 or 15x7 0 offset?

They were 13 " x 20" tall by 9.5 inches wide, with the cantilever sidewall, super stick at the time. Likely moved more than todays tires in reality, just thought I would mention it as something to be aware off, you never know.

Re: 15x6.5 +15 or 15x7 0 offset?

Just a word of caution with the tire so close to the strut. If you are cornering hard, keep an eye on the sidewall at that point. Even when I ran race slicks with a finger width of clearance, the tire deflection had the tire hitting the strut. And that was with a cantilever tire with rock hard sidew...

Re: 15" Riken Mesh wheels for sale

Sorry, I should have put that on there. They are 7" and a 205/50 tire is the best combo IMHO.

I am sure they are ZERO offset but can check that next week for sure as they are at work. I do have the axel caps for them also.

Re: 2.3L of fun

Most I ever did was 140 MPH through the canyon with the Malcinator, that was beyond stupidly fast in a 510, and the car, even with my air dam was really starting to get "floaty"

Re: 2.3L of fun

I did have a transmission once with that .759, hated it for racing ( hillclimbs) Even with 20" tall race tires and the revs up there, when I would go to 5th at the hillclimb, the car just laid down, felt like a wet dish rag. That 5th gear set up is only if you really want and can pull some top ...

Re: 2.3L of fun

I am happy with my ratios and my 4:62 combo. On 20" or 21" race tires, it was dynamic, as 2nd and 3rd were awesome at most of our solo's back in the day, before the course's got stupidly small and short. It helped to have that 8,000 RPM redline too. 1) 2.906 2) 1.902 3) 1.308 4) 1.000 5) ....

Re: 2.3L of fun

As these Transmission are "Unobtanium" now, there is no amount of cash that could make me part with that.
It is in MINT condition, I was so lucky to score that.

I still think those 15 would look GREAT on you car...... :lol: :wink:

Re: 2.3L of fun

Just an FYI while we are on the topic of tires. My 048's now have 5,000 miles on them, and most of you know what our drives are like, so you can extrapolate from that. The center is just getting to the wear bar and the outer edges have maybe an 1/8th left. That is with running 30 PSI, so maybe a bit...

Re: 2.3L of fun

Yes, I have had my tires move also. I really used to when running race tires. As the guy said, sometimes balancing race tires is a waste, specially at relatively low speed stuff like Solo. I usually balance my tires when new of course, then just run them till I THINK I may have a vibration from tire...
