15X6 Wheels

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

I wonder if anyone have a set f 15x6 wheels I can borrow for a week or two.

 

I am wanting to try running 205/60/15 Hoosier speedster on my group S car (as allowed) before committing to buy a set of 15 wheels.

 

Anyone can help please let me know.

Tom,

 

Has always in the spec sheet.

Just no one found tyres in that size that as good as the Yokohama A050

They got approved a couple years ago, due to a, at the time, short supply/lack of supply, of two manufacturers tyres, in 14", with no defined date of supply available, also it was shown that other marques were being allowed 15" tyres, in place of 14".

 

Cars never had them, from factory, but, like Webers on some, they were allowed.

 

Diff ratio may need to be changed, as you ability to exit corners will be slightly diminished., tradeoff is, more rubber in contact with ground.

The Hoosier Speedster's will be an interesting try, in the US Hoosier are noted for building wide race tyres designed to perform on relatively narrow rims.
