I have Momo Corse S-Five rims (17x7). I just ordered a set of the KDWs (225/45R-17), and they should be here with plenty of time between now and my first race day. On April 10th I am attending a local autox training session with the next day being a points racing day. My question... looking for opinions of whether I purch...

5 Replies and 1698 Views side facing inwards/outwards  1698  5 Started by  sub-t I have some used kumho victoracers.  Question is, what would be the effects of mounting these with the labeled 'side facing inwards' on the outside  Is there any tire construction difference between the inside and outside, or is it just the tread block designThese tires still have lots of potential life, but the outside tread is worn and the inside tread looks brand new.  They were run on a dry auto-x track and were not shaved.  Guessing 2 to 4 events on them.

8 Replies and 1187 Views Tire/wheel size - opinions?  1187  8 Started by  Danno I'm rolling around some ideas, and it's too quiet around here.  So I'm soliciting opinions on the question of the day.Suppose you had a 3400 pound AWD street touring car, and your choices of wheel/tire size were 245/45-17 on a 17x8.5 inch wheel and 245/40-18 on an 18x8.5 inch wheel...the 17 inch combo being significantly less expensive with the same tire.  How much would you feel you were giving up by using the 45 series tire vs. the 40 series  Enough to worry about

6 Replies and 1060 Views Source for a Used Alloy Wheel?  1060  6 Started by  Joe   My son watched Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift and quickly discovered FWD is difficult to drift and curbs cause lots of damage.  I'm now in the process of replacing most of the passenger side front suspension but need to locate an alloy wheel for a 94 Grand Am GT.  The junkyards seem to pull the wheels as soon as the cars come in and online remanufactured rims are over $230.  Does anyone know of a source for a used cheap OEM alloy wheel  I'm thinking...

The price is just about going to be a wash except for my labor to install and program the MegaSquirt system. There is an Olds performance place on the east coast that sells a system already done up for the GM system in this car for a total price of around $40...

Question is will they fit my '85 RX-7   The wheels have a four inch back spacing / 0 offset. For autu-x and track days i am currently useing 15x7 wheels with a 33 offset with 225/45-15 tires. These fit to the limit. I mount my tires at the house and drive to the event's. If i get the 13x8 wheels i will be useing 235/50-13 tires. the overall diameter of both sets is about the same. Also the RX-7 has a stock body, no wide body kit .    &nbs...

2 Replies and 1166 Views Tire pressure and braking  1166  2 Started by  MattG For Falken Azenis, or other tires,  how does the tire pressure affect the braking traction.   For instance, will more or less pressure aid in braking    I lowered the pressure in the front between runs, and it felt like my braking traction was less.  However, I did not know if that was tire temp, course changes, me over driving, etc.
