VenomRogue so, how much do these bogart wheels cost?

ive been running my 225/50-15 BFG drag radials and my 22x8x15 MT slicks on stock 10 spoke focus wheels (6.5in wide, lol)

tobyboom They were drilled for a 4x100 car, but you dont see too many hondas using a 15" wheel for slicks. They usually run a 13" wheel, so I dont know what they were originally for. As for the backspacing, taking a rough measurement netted me about 5" BS. For the price that I got these wheels for, I havent got a SINGLE complaint in the world... :)

CompEuroZX5 tobyboom,

What size backspacing do your wheels have as seem to stick out quite a bit more than Focus_3XZ's wheels which are a 1/4" wider than yours? I'm guessing that they were originally meant for a Honda as they appear to be drilled for a 4x100 bolt pattern.

tobyboom BOGARTS FOR THE WIN!!!

15x8 with M&H 23x8.5x15 slicks:




I have no rubbing issues at all, but most likely would with a taller tire. I'm hoping to switch to a different wheel (13" for the ultimate fatty tire) with a 25" tall tire in the near future, so I'll pass that bridge when it comes up.

Focus_3XZ What is your engine setup?

pocus02x3 I have yet to run it at the track with this setup yet. I'm going to wanm the hoosiers til i hear the tell tail hoosier sign(they sqeek and they are warm) then i'm going to start just rolling off the line to begin with and then gradually start getting more and more into as far as launching is concearned. the way the car hits on boost If i can just roll off the line and have full traction I'll still be movin pretty fast.

I'll deffinatly be keeping people posted
