Hi Joel, don't know how you do it but thanks.I Ended up buying a local car with 4 bald tires and curb rashed wheels. I am looking at three wheel sizes and was hoping you could help pick the best size for the front and rear wheels.18 x 8.5 50mm off set.18 x 9.5 55mm18 x 10 60mmafter choosing the wheels, what tire sizes and maybe proven affordable manufacturer should i run on them?This is a second car on the street for me, not a daily driver but, will get driven regularly on bumpy and twisty Sonoma County back roads and may eventually be tracked. After the wheels and tires i am planning on coil overs and trg bars if this affects your thought process.As a secondary, thinking ahead question, what are the max lbs springs that you would run on a street driven car for the front and rear coils respectively?I won't ask you any questions at this time about shock selection because i still have a lot to read up on.We might use this as a chase car for the La carrera in Mexico.more to come, thank you.
