oh sh1t!! those are the ones I have.. The Konig Troubles. but mine are 18
I personaly watched Lark03 run a 13.7 in his Stafford GT.Originally posted by carboncelicagt
Hey watch it.. first... its the DA kit.. what more do you want.. his fuel tuning is with a little black box. And.. where are all the GT-T's with 13's. I have yet to see one yet. I only see GTS's in the 13's and they are only running 186 whp.
i wouldn't think so....you would just want wider wheels and stickier rubber to get more traction...I can't imagine a heavier wheel ever being better!Originally posted by twistedGTS
correct me if i'm wrong, but aren't hevier wheels a bit better for F/I since they will help you keep traction?

17's are not going to be as bad as 18's, i believe the rotational intertia of a ring (which a rim isnt exactly, almost a cross between a disk and a ring) is 1/2 mr^2. A solid disk is just mr^2, So i guess the rotational intertia of a rim would be somewhere inbetween the two, depends on the design, But reguardless...
But if i get a lower profile tire than it would be almost like having 16's with the 17's.. correct?
What to take from the equation? Its going to get harder to turn the wheel as you add length to the radius... more so then adding mass, because radius is squared. People seem to make a bigger deal about getting light weight rims then getting smaller rims, should be the other way around.
****, so go with 205/50/16? or 215/40/17.Originally posted by monkeywrench
Keep in mind- shorter sidewall tires tend to hook up worse in a straight line.
If I were you and you decide to go the 17" route (which is what i'd do) I would get 215-45-17. I like the 45 better than the 40 for a 17...Originally posted by carboncelicagt

And would BFGoodritch G/force sport be ok for a turbo'd car on street?
