930 Wheels

I am currently looking into purchasing Fikse FM 10s. My plan is to go with 8X18 and 11X18. The main purpose for the car is DE events.

If I go to 8.5" or 9" in the front will that create other problems, rolling fenders ect?

Do 17" diameter wheels allow for a more agressive suspension set up?

Are the 18" diameter wheels a better direction due to tire selection?

Any feed back would help tremendously!! Thanks!!

Drop me a PM or email offline, we are a large Fikse dealer and can help you out!

9 and 11 will work fine, you can use either 17 or 18, but like you stated, at some point (could be a long while) 17 tires may not have the best selection....

Cheers

I've got 9" and 11" x 18" BBS wheels for the track and buying slicks is an expensive propostion. If I was to do it again, I might go with 17 next time. There is a large selection of tires and they are much cheaper. My buddy has them and uses Hoosiers.
