Thanks wrc_fan! That makes sense about the wheel size. I agree about the Duratec. Unfortunately I don't want or need another car, and have tried to sell the SVT with no luck. My goal is to get my foot in the door with this car and hopefully if I'm any good, I get sponsorships through my families contacts. Then I will start looking into different cars.
Are they using regular steel wheels? I will run up to my junkyard and pick up a set if they are. I know the wheels could be bent, someone used fix a flat, etc, etc. Thats why its good to know someone at Big O Tire that would be happy to throw them on the machine and check them out knowing I will be back for tires.
