9x15 wheels

I'm sure this topic has been discussed over and over, but I'm just looking for the latest info....

Anyone making a 9x15 minilite, superlite, panasport etc. wheel?

How about 9x15 Fuchs?

Like many of you, I've got the itch to build an ST type car, but seems the wheels are the hardest part to source.

Thanks,

Todd

There were 9x15" Fuchs made and they can be found occasionally for big $$$. They were used on the front of the 73RSR...

Your biggest issue will be tires. 245/50/15s are available,

but that's it. Otherwise you'll be hand-grooving Avon slicks.

Not too worried about tires.....it will be a track car. Hoosier makes a few sizes that will work.

If that's the case, 9x15 Fuchs can usually be found for $1000 to $1500 for a pair.

good luck and keep us posted~!
