S13 wheels

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I have a na sr20 s13 coupe, looking at buying new wheels, it currently has 15x6.5 195/60/17s

I'm buying bigger wheels so i can fit turbo brakes at the front (has 2 pots at the back and 1 pot on the front from previous owner) so im tossing up between 16x7 16x7.5 or 17x7 17x7.5 either way its going to have 195s on it still but will it make it harder to skid/drift in the dry if i go 17s?

 

TLDR; are 17x7.5 195/45 to big to drift na sr20

 

Thanks guys

Years ago i used to own a sr20de s13 on my P's. Took it out to archerfield and qld raceway for regular drift nights. Id stick to 15 and 16 inch wheels for an NA, id usually run either a 185 or 195 width tyre in these sizes. I tried running 215/45/17 once and it was not favorable for this application.

Didn't you have another thread that was the same? In a 17 the tyres are expensive and oddball size.

 

32 gtr wheels with 205/50 is the go. Tyres are up to $40 cheaper each
