I spent all of my 2014 season fighting traction issues on a track pack 2006 Exige with Katana S/C with old Z1 tires w/no diff. I borrowed my friends Toyo 888s mid season and finished with a top 8 raw time(out of 100+cars) result. I have since replaced the tires with 2014 formula RS3 tires and the mods listed below. After seeing posts by Phil, ///MD, and driftwood I have been set on purchasing a 15" race wheel set up for the upcoming race season. I don't run SCCA, so class rules do not matter to me, I run with a group that is "run what you brung" The plan was 15x8F and 15x9R, but now I am thinking about going either 15X8(+25) square or 15X9(+36 until I run spacers) square. Can you fit a 15x9 front (on an exige) without body work? If I go 15x8 I was thinking about going 225/45/15F and 225/50/15R to maintain some of the rake.
My current set up is Ohlins with 425F/550R (corner balanced) 125/135 ride heights, aftermarket steering arms, supercharged.
