diamond racing wheels

Does anyone have them?

I was thinking of getting a set of their mini stock 13x7 wheels for auto-x, and pairing them with some Kumho V710's. Are the wheels really only $60 each, or have they gone up in price?

anyone have pics? Any input would be apreciated.

thanks

Have you looked on their website?

IIRC they weren't anywhere near $60, unless that includes shipping and a price increase. $39 sticks in my mind.

Diamond rolled 13 by 7 rims are $55 (with the new surcharge) and spun rims are $10 more.
At Circle wheels they have trwp models of 13 steel rims. A 13 lb and a 16.5 lb model and there is $10 or $15 differnce between the two. I would chack the price and weight on the wheels you are looking at.

I have been using these wheels and they work fine. Sure I could get something lighter, but I would have to spend alot more.

I've been running them on my EP 1st gen for years, and I would have to say that they are a bargain. The typical size that they sell a ton of to Pro-7 drivers is the 13x7 with a 4" backspace. Definitely a good value.

I have them in something rediculous like 15x10 or 11 front and a tad wider in the rear but I haven't ran them yet since the engine still has to be installed. I bought them along with an IMSA widebody kit for my fb. They seem like a good rim for the money.

Well nevermind then.

Does anyone have any bad things to say about using their 15" wheels on an FC? I'm curous if you can get enough backspacing to work right on one. (Interested in 15x8's)

I used Diamond 13x9's on my SM prepared ITR powered Civic with some 225 hoosiers stretched over them, it was a blast to drive and the wheels were excellent, especially for the low cost. I didnt have money for Keizers or Circles or Real Racing wheels, so the Diamonds were the perfect choicer, I was able to spend the bulk of my money on nice tires and other goodies. Diamond wheels are all over the place too, see if you can find a used set for cheap, they are all over the racign forums in classified ads.

I've seen 15x10's on an FC all around, even with stock bodywork but its very hard to find the right size tires to provide enough grip for any FC with good power. For my FC, I was able to find some 16x10 aluminum wheels from Real Racing, off ebay for dirt cheap. so I went with the 16x10's to be able to run a 275 wide Rcomp.
