Turbo 2 AutoX Wheel setups?

So guys what size wheel setups are you running in autox. I thought about using a set of FD rims also. And is there a guide or site that shows how much offset you need with different widths?

Thanks!

using the FD wheels will put you out of stock class.

they fit on the FC with front wheel spacer.

Sorry I mean for a SM2 or Street Prep setup. I don't know where this car will be placed yet but I want to put a good amount of rubber on the tarmac. I ran my first season in a GS Subaru Impreza 2.5RS and did rather well. Just wanted something besides my daily driver nail cones with.

thanks!

If you want to stay on a budget try some 90+300ZX wheels. You need a .25" spacer up front but you can still run stock wheel studs. They are actually pretty light, 5lbs lighter each than 87 TII wheels. 16x7.5"

FD wheels are .5" wider, and just slightly lighter. From what I know you can't run stock wheel studs, the spacer is rather thick.

Jeff,

Thanks, that engine looks great polished. I'm going to have to double my efforts to clean the engine bay after seeing that.
