No kidding...if the wheels were any lighter, I wouldn't have made it through this mornings snowfall to work. This car isn't a big fan of snow with the factory wheels/tires in the first place. Snow & slush traction is almost nonexistant.modernceo said:You need it to be heavy for traction issues..
Get lighter wheels .. sure youll have better high end acceleration..but youll just burn up the tires and sit at the light in first gear.. ! !
You only go lighter when you have a LSD unit (traction). However, light rims when installing a LSD will provided addtional HP at the wheel and less rotational mass.drolander said:Hmm... I thought from previous posts that lighter was better. Now I'm confused. Should I look for heavy rims? What else can be done for better traction?
Also, if I get new rims, what width should I get? 7 in? What would be the best width tire to get?
