Sure, I'd say you are look at $100+ per wheel though. I think I was quote $80 or so for mine, and they are smaller and less complex.

i think it might be better to get aftermarket ones. if only to save weight.

The factory rims are only 6in wide?!? Holy crap, I know what my first mod would be. I have factory 16x7s on my car and wouldn't go any narrower unless it was for snow tires. I'd think 17x7.5 would be nice on the SRT-4.

Has anyone checked the price of the Michelins yet? I looked around at a few places and it looks like they go for around $225 a tire. Is this a good price for a high performance tire? It sounds a little high to me, but I'm used to spending $80 a tire.

They list for 191 on tirerack. There are a few different versions of the Pilot tire tho, so make sure your getting the one's you want.

Heavy wheels - xither0ckxi

Those wheels look like they would be really heavy xither0ckxi.
I know 'don't judge a book by its cover.'

I had a SCC mag that had a bunch of aftermarket wheels and their weights.

All a moot point of course if you are going for looks and not increased speed, xither0ckxi.

My $0.02

:shock:
I fully endorse Falken Azenis or Kumho 712's. Around (less if you look hard) 100 bux a tire, and are about as high performance as anything else short of a race compound tire (especially the Falkens.)

I haven't driven these Michelins, but they would have to be pretty awesome to convince me they are worth that kind of money.

9? 8?
I don't follow you. :?

What sucks is that I have to stick with the STOCK tire size to stay in the stock class. NOBODY makes competition-grade rubber in 205/xx/17, and the engine is too big for Street Touring X.

By the way, does anybody else out there autocross?

Yeah, I suppose that would work, but it's kind of the long way around a problem, I think.

A good combination of springs, struts and swaybars will get your car to handle neutral or even oversteer, FWD or not. To illustrate my point, can you think of a FWD racecar that uses wider front tires than rear? (Drag cars don't count :) )

Besides, the fronts are going to be fried in about a week, and you couldn't rotate them! :twisted:

and that is why no one does it. cause no one has tried it yet. once they see it on my car they will be like, "holy shit, look at that guy... he is gods gift to driving. how the hell is he so good? oh damn, look at those wheels! ill have to try that."

and then the trend starts! :twisted: :lol:
