your opinions on rims/tires
just wanted to get people's views on what tire/rim size would work best for:

1)top end speed
2)1/4 mile time
3)autox'ing
4)for looks

my next mods could be suspension-wise i.e. shocks, sways, rear tower brace...but i might just go for the wheels...my bonus comesup soon deal thumbsup

Stick with some lightweight 16s and you'll be good thumbsup

17" rims look awsome...and sportive!!!

i love 17"

16" performs well...but a bit small...

here is my 2 cents:
1. 17's or 18's (large size = higher top speed)
2. 15's (smaller = lighter and faster but lower top speed)
3. 17's or 18's (corner like its on rails)
4. 18's (nice)

I know you knew that CT and I don't have the energy to get into tires. Except in general terms:

1. Large tires
2. small, low profile
3. stock diameter, low profile (24")
4. what tires

Brands...shit who knows, everyone likes something different. Kumho, Dunlop, Bridgestone, Falken, Toyo.
