That's just what I do. I got a set of used 5.5" steel rims from a guy who 
thought that he had been told that they might have been Formula Ford rims. 
At any rate, they fit the Midget, hold 185/60/13 tires and don't rub (RWA 
Midgets are nice). Bill Perry picked me up a set of the Yoko A008R tires 
from behind the tire truck at the race track, and they have been 
autocrossing just fine for me. If I get good enough, I might contemplate 
A032Rs, but these tires are still better than I am ;-)

Not a daily driver. the 5300 miles (yup, put some more on yesterday) are all 
fun miles... a trip down to North Carolina to run the Gap, a bunch of club 
runs, etc.
