Race Wheels

This is my first post on this forum and I’m hoping you guys can help me out. We have been racing ZX2’s in the 24 Hours of LeMons for about a year now and we had a problem in our last race with our wheels. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KYdsga9057E We had a little too much offset. What are you guys running as far as wheels on you ZX2? I need something thats going to give me maximum contact, not rub the struts and not stick out past the fenders. Any help would be great. Thanks

a 215 is about the max if you have stock suspension, a lowered car can only fit up to a 205. I have 205’s on stock wheels and I’ve had 215’s on 17x7’s

What offset are you using? Thanks

the stockers are 35 i think and the 17’s were 40 or 42, I don’t have them with me or I’d check. I’ve heard that 225’s can be fitted up front but I’m not sure about that. I know 205’s on the stock wheels with my drop do a good job of polishing the inner fenders, but that’s due to the ballooning of the sidewalls I think


Thanks for the help. I just picked up a set of 15x6.5 40mm offset with 205/50R15 Azenis 615’s. They look sweet and are very flush. Big thanks to Rob at ZXtuner.com for the info.
