Default What wheels @ Tirerack are within specs.

I'm thinking of getting a set of wheels at Tirerack.com that would meet these requirements:

15-16 inch diameter and up to 7.5 in width
weighs under 20 lbs each
has a centerbore of 60.1 mm or whatever the stock 1992 sc300 is (in other words, hub-centric)
has an offset at least +35mm
under $200 per wheel

Thank you.

Why not just use tireracks search function? You can even filter wheel sizes you want. Just a thought.

But I've went to those wheel manufacturer's websites and they have a centerbore of 73 mm or so. That means I'll need a wheel spacer that costs money, if not it'll be lug centric, and I turn rather hard going to school, and I plan on going auto-x

15-16" might be small for you, but it's what I want.

Why not just keep the stock wheels?

They aren't wide or light enough. They're chrome btw. I am hoping Brandon@TR would respond to this, or at least PM me if there isn't anything within spec.

OZ Superleggeras

Hope this helps,

Wow that is a nice wheel, but tirerack only sells at 17 inches and higher.

BTW I went to the OZ website and their application list says I can only use two wheels : O.Z. 18 x 9 superleggera MTS and Race silver, yet for an sc400 it can use a 16" F1 evo along with 8 other wheels, including the superleggera.

It seems that these websites have bad databases. BTW, I went to Chevron and they had a "find nearest station", and it was 11 miles away! I knew one that was 1.5 miles away, so I emailed them and now all the stations showed up. They thanked me but too bad they didn't give me free gas.

Default Center Rings

It looks like just about everything we have for SC is going to require a centering ring. Many of our road racers and auto X'ers use lightweight wheels that require a centering ring, we provide these at no additional charge.
