The other day it occurred to me I had gone through a LOT of front wheels for my Elise trying to take it from base stock to SCCA AStreet legal.
Chasing as above, either faster, lighter or cooler I used the array of front wheels pictured above... do I need help?

From the left, the base 16x5.5" heavy wheel...
then a 16x6.5" LSS wheel was next..
followed by a 16x 6.5" SSR wheel..
I hit the "light" motherlode when I found the TR Motorsports F1 wheels!!

ooo La La!!

But then I found 15" wheels were allowed... and located the dirt cheap Koenig Helium wheels, 15x6.5".. in BLACK
(not knowing , or unable to find any other color)
A month later found same Koenigs in Silver.. = Cooler!

Last month, located and splurged for some Vintage Volk CE 28s 15x6.5".. 9.1 pounds.. Yay!!


Help me! I want to go faster in AStreet!!! mmwwwaahhahahah

Ha, used to have that problem. Keep living the dream and congrats on finding the TR F1s. Wait until you change classes...
Actually I have a S240 to try in SS too... looks like finding 15x6 4x100 will be virtually impossible! (At least light weight options)

Score +1 on looks, but not sure would benefit me any in street class auto-x 🤔😀
For sure. I abhor Auto-X, so it works for me. I do plan to take her on the Dragon in the Fall though, this year or next, it was hella fun in my S2000 and my M2.
