Minilites

Post by dougieboy1 » Sun Aug 16, 2015 8:08 pm

I have 13" minilite copies on at the moment. They look very small!

Am thinking of going to either 14 or 15 inch minilites. I have also seen suggestion of running 6 inch at the front and 7 inch at the back. Am aiming for Avon ZZ either 195 or 205…..

Any thoughts on these options?

thanks Dave, how does the car drive? Never had wider at the back than the front before…..

you also have gone 15 inch. This presents no issues with wheels fouling on the wing, particularly at the front?
