CadVetteStang posted a topic in Build: Cody's Autocross/ Road Race 02 EldoradoShortly after getting the car in Oct of 2013, I started researching various tire and wheel combinations. My goal was to find a workable setup that I could use on the street as well as the autocross track. After making a few measurements and considering the planned brake upgrades, I establish the parameters I wanted to work with. Once I install the 12.75" front rotors, the 16" stock wheels will not fit. Therefore, 17" wheels are the minimum diameter I am looking for. Because of weight, I limited the maximum size to 20" (not to mention that 21" and larger wheels on the mid-sized Eldorado looks too Gangster for me. These are 20 X 8.5" wheels with 245/35 R20 tires. So far, it is the only 20" wheel that I like on the car. I don't want bling bling rims, I am after a light weight performance wheel that looks sporty. I will post more pics when I can. Thanks to Arch Street Pawnshop in Little Rock, AR for hosting a half day of wheel fitment tests and pictures. I learned a lot and now have a clear direction to shop for a winning combination.
