If you go down to a 15" wheel, skip the steels and try to find a set of the OEM 16-spoke wheels. They will weigh far less than the steelies.
i beg to differ

PARKINGLOT okay, that about sells me on the rt-615's. I'm in need of tires soon (got to do the suspension then get it aligned first) and I'm trying to find a good tire. I plan on making some dragstrip runs as well as probably auto-x runs....

SuperFlea They actually last a good while. I had a set of 14" steelies with falken azenis tires, dorve on them for a while after i bought them used from another member, and sold them to another person in still mint great condition. It also depends on how many Auto-X events you attend on them.

PARKINGLOT how long can you expect a set of 615's to last street driving and some auto-xing?

thenorm i ran on 15" stock OEM wheels and 205/50R15 V710's for a while. and soon i will be running 225/45R15 v710s, so 15" tires are not hard to find.

Erik508 Thanks for all the responses so far.

As for the wheel issue, if you can afford something light weight but still strong go for it.
This is interesting. Any problems getting 14"s to fit? Where did you pick up your wheels?

WeeAsp Apologies. When you said steelies, I thought you meant cords showing on the tires. I just realized you meant steel wheels.

So, go for it, but I don't have any experience with the 615 tire.
