    So I understand that you have to use the stock size wheel +/- 1" in diameter within +/-7mm offset.  I found a wheel that is stock size, but -8mm (+45 instead of the stock +53) and I found one that is the same diameter but is 7.5" wide when the stock wheel is 8" wide.  Are both wheels illegal? I'm only considering the 17x7.5" because they are 3 pounds lighter per wheel and $150 cheaper than the 17x8" that I am looking at. Should I just keep looking? I only plan on racing local events. If I ever race at a national event I would consider buying proper wheels that go with the class better, but can't afford to go all out right now for my local events.

     

    Thanks!

    You are correct, neither wheel is legal for Street class. You could potentially machine 1mm off the -8mm set and use them.  Or check locally and see if anyone cares; 1mm could get you protested, but would be a pretty weeny regional protest.

    When it comes time to be competitive, I think this is what I'll do.  I was thinking about that recently.  I heard there are a few quality wheel repair shops here in Denver, and I bet one of them could do it.  Thanks!
