Using them as my autocross wheels. Hankook Z214 C50s... Great tires. I used to run R888s for autocross and track, but I think I'm going to use those for lapping only now.

Looks great, but I like my stockers better.

I'll trade you even for my stockers. I like yours better.
I already have 2 sets of stockers... One set with street tires and one set with R888s for lapping. I've always liked the accessory wheels; just not as much as the stockers. These were in great condition and were only $700 for the set so I couldn't resist.

I got tired of mine after one summer. They got it right with the rims. Most aftermarket rims don't look as good as the stockers.

Wanna sell that extra set with the Toyo's?

I love the accessory wheels. I just don't like the polished look. I would love to get a set and paint them a darkish silver.

Jon's got it right. Keep the ugly wheels for the events that take up the least amount of time...

How are you getting the tires/wheels to the track? Is that your tire trailer in the background? I dont see a hitch on the V??

1 in the trunk, fold the back seat down and put 3 there. Big ass towels everywhere, tire bags, etc.

I find it easier to put all 4 tires in the back seat. Fold the smaller seat section down and you can wedge the 4 in there. That's with each in a tire bag and wrapped up with an old blanket. Then I put all my tools and supplies and luggage in the trunk.

Look who's got mod fever! :histeric:


I like 'em, Jon. I agree, though, the stockers look really good, too. Even with my lowly Mille Miglias (as ho-hum as they are), it's fun to change back and forth to break up the monotony occasionally.

Wait, do ya have the seat folded down or no?

I had a set of Mille Miglias too! They were nice wheels. Had them mounted on Blizzaks but never ended up really using them except for storing my car in the winter. I ended up selling them earlier this year for the same price I bought them for 3 and a half years ago. :D

That's how I do it. I autocross my V regularly, and as my name suggests I run in E Street Prepared. For what it's worth I run Hoosiers on Team Dynamics rims.

What class do you run? If you ever want to talk setup, holler at me.

Our classifications are probably a little different since I'm in Canada and we follow CASC classifications. I'm always in some sort of stock class.
