I was referring to the fact that a 7.5" wide wheel usually accompanies a smaller tire (such as a 215) compared to a wider wheel with a 225 or 235 tire that would provide more contact patch and better grip for the added torque. Technically, you could run the wider tires on the skinny wheel...it's just not common and would look funny.

its mainly what kind of tire you run. softer compound will yield more traction but wear down faster. the opposite for harder compounds.

run 235 if your worried about traction. you will only have the traction problem in first if you go easy. after that its smooth sailing if you have an auto

dude why not run a 16x8 if your worrying about traction? that or 17x8 or 7.5? 18s are gonna be heavy for a car thats going to see track time...any type of track (im referring to non-light weight type rims, those konigs arent lightened.)

or be like me and get the best of both worlds. lightweight sets and everyday sets.

if it wasnt for my BBK i would have went with 15" or 16" rims. they do make that much of a defference.

that impossible. you know that right? your rims if they are 18" weigh probably 18 pounds a piece. and with a tire their in the 35-42 pound range.

i have gram lights also. 18x8.5 and they weigh roughly 20 pounds a piece. the lightest wheels might weigh 2-3 pounds LESS than their diameter. its very rare to find something lighter than that

An 18" tire by itself weighs at least that much when it's fully inflated.

definitely BS..

Even Magnesium wheels have trouble pulling off that type of weight. Tires alone weigh 15-25lbs.

lol, you guys talk as if inflating a tire makes a difference in its total weight

but yeah, chris, i bet your whole combo weighs about twice that--but it's still really light for an 18

my bad, its 18 w/o a tire, slight mistype, thats what i get for drinking and posting. I'll find out the inflated weight if you guys want.

The 18 lbs was pulled from a website that lists rim weights, I never weighed the rim myself.

I guess it's fine, because it's just a J30 turbo, shouldn't be too much of a wheel spinner in the first place.
