After my second SCCA Solo-II event, I am most definitely hooked. There are
still performance items I am addressing, and some suspension changes I am
considering. I am now in the market for wheels and tires for my Spit for
this type of racing. I would greatly appreciate any guidance from those of
you out there that have experience, as to where I can obtain tires and wheels
for a Spitfire, what brands to look for (or avoid). I don't want to go to
real cheap, but I also can't spend lots and lots of money. I would be
interested in good used wheels and or tires if someone has some available,
contact me off list.
Has anyone put 14" wheels and 50 or 60 series tires on a Spit?
I currently have 185-70 r13 all-season radials on stock (13x4.5) steel wheels
and believe it or not this '77 Spitfire is performing well enough to out-power
the tires . I don't think I can get much better times until I get better
rubber on the road.
