Hey guys and gals. I'm hoping to come out the beginning of next year and start out in the rookie class. My car should be about ready in December or January.
I'm here looking for some advice on wheel and tire size recommendations.
My car is a 1965 Mustang Coupe which modifications include:
Global West Tubular Upper Control Arms with Negative Roll System
620lb coil springs
1 1/8" sway bar
Manual steering box with Shelby Quick Steer Pitman and Idler
Poly Bushings on everything
Pro-Motorsports Bumpsteer Kit
5 1/2 leaf mid eye springs (rated at 300lbs I believe)
3/4" sway bar
will be adding a minimum 8 point cage
Slightly modified 302 (5.0)
5-Speed Manual trans
9 inch rear end with 3.70 gears
will be adding a locker or limited slip diff soon
Currently 4 wheel disk swap but looking to upgrade to Wilwood 11.75" front Dynalite Pro Series and 11" rear
I'm looking at some 15" steel wheels, specifically Cragar Soft 8s. 15x7 front and 15x8 rear.
Should I be looking at 16 or 17 inch instead for the SOLO events?
