    Yeah I found a set of the wolfrace in 14 plus 2 of the star rims and a very used set of weller
    I'm considering selling my 14 inch wolfrace to finance a set of banded wheels in 15 inch

    I was going to go 5.5 on the front to sort the tyre scrub on inner arch out as I'm not a fan of wide tyres on the front

    You will be when the front 'wipes out' due to the lack of grip. How do I know? Now on 225/65R15 front 255/65R15 rear

    Thanks Peter,

    I'm collecting some 15 inch rims tonight and was wondering what size, how do you find the sidewall height with the 65 profile on the front, I was thinking more like 60 on even 50

    just look at F1 tyres, not skinny by any means, less side wall means less flex which helps to keep the tread flat on the road. skinny tyres are hard and slide like a bitch (on my Mercedes A170 for instance).

    Great video. The 'dude' says it well.
