and only 2 sticky tires? ehh i will just get a summer set, so i can get new wheels for them.
also, when get my tires, i am gonna go on a date with them. drive around for like half an hr, and make a parking lot run or two, just to see what they can do.
Because I always see a red one parked at a cabinet store on douglas road. I go to UT

Ah I see that makes sense why I've never seen your car because I'm here the other 9mo of the year. Do you autox in the nwor then? I ran with them once but never had time to go more than the one time in this region.

I may have to drive by meijer and check out your car next time I'm out that way. Sounds like it is looking pretty good.

I guess the SVT had 17 inch rims OR y’all are running something other then the stock class. I actually set out to get a cheap set of 15 inch rims i.e. anything aluminum for use as racing only rims but I couldn’t find a set of usable rims for less than a new set of 16 x 7 MB Seven's (very cheap at $75 ea). So, I shifted my plan. I'll use the new rims as my daily drivers and convert my current stock 16 x 7 aluminum rims into my racing rims. Current plans are to remove the factory paint, sand down - clean up the various road rash and take them to work and powder coat them some eye popping color like Caterpillar yellow or John Deer green. Not sure, but we might have some lime green or orange. Obviously I haven't quite settled on the color yet. My only real loss is not getting the 15 inch size for racing. I don't think that will be a huge issue. I'll try and keep the tires as short as possible to compensate. I know there are lighter wheels than the factory aluminum rims out there. But as it been stated, I’ll need a few more events in my log book before a few pounds on the rims makes the difference of winning or losing. Y’all are offering up lots of good info. Thanks a lot.
was just reading through the thread and noticed this. I don't know of any factory 16x7 wheels for the Focus. 16x6 only. So if you are running 16x7 you need to run in ST or FSP if you have race tires...
