rota slipstreams (16X7) wrapped in falken azenis RT-615's. good choice for autocross?
i was thinking about getting a set of these wheels, and tires.... wat do u guys sugest... and what tire size would you guys recomend. also what PSI should i run on?... these are jus for autocross not for street use (jus to let u kno :).). thanks for the input in advance [pray] [race]

I've heard 16" wheels won't clear our brakes.

The tires work though. I had them on a VW and I loved them.

If you can get a set of 16's to fit let me know.

ill be sure to do so.... man thats gunna suck if they dont fit. i guess 17's wouldnt hurt...

most 16" rims will fit, this is probably going to be moved into either racing rally autocross forums, or the wheels/tires forum btw. You'll get much better responses there, and check this forum for info:

welcome to FF btw, and the search button is your friend

Well I started a search on 16's w/ SVT's. I want 16" wheels for AutoX.

Here's what I got.

16s are better for autocrossing and it's most 15's that won't fit our [i]front[/b] brakes. i autoXed with a svt that had 18s and did remarkably well, better then I lol but i had sucky street tires.

and thanks miniboom i'll put this in the right place [thumb]

I just autox'd n july w/ a buddy that has a infrared SVT focus w/ 16 in rota slipstreams for track duty.
He didnt have any clearance issues that i know of.
g luck and nice choice.I run falkens and love em.

slipstreams are so common, go with something else. please.

therre so light as well, thats why a lot of people use em, and at a good price

Scrammer, the only reason we all have slipstreams is because they are the only ones available in the exact size and bolt pattern. Don't you think I want a set of Volks? Find me some 16x7 +45mm 108x4 Te-37s and I'll buy them immediately.

For that matter, find me ANY wheel as light at the 13.3 lb Rota for $500 shipped to my door. It's not about looks, it's about racing.

I have the 16x7 Rota Slips with 215 size Falken Azeni RT-615s. Awesome combination! And the whole set cost $930 shipped new.
