Default List the stock wheel size of each car you've owned....

In sequential order.

14" (86 Subaru XT Turbo)
14" (96 Hyundai Elantra)
15" (92 Prelude Si)
14" (86 Scirocco 16v)
16" (2001 RS)
18" (2004 R32)



Kinda interesting.

I wonder if we're at the logical conclusion for compact cars...

17in wheels are about the best size for pure performance, but you need some actual power to move them, which is a problem for a lot of cars.

It was a joke at an Install day about people not getting gold wheels with their subarus like in the 2.5rs's and STis. Basically a guy at the meet had an STI with silver wheels and was saying how people gave him a hard time because he didnt get the rally heritage gold wheels so I played along and said how I had the same problem and we joked about it for a while ( i have gold wheels though ).

So i was playing on the jokes....they put 13s on the cars over there?!

*layman also did not have gold wheels or rally hertiage on his subi so it was a good thing he sold it

Well, I was deliberately car-less through college (having a car at PSU was more of a liability than an asset in my mind). Got my used '95 in grad school, and rode it til it died early last year. So, yeah. That's not so

Well, for a guy who spends hours a day on a car board, it is.

For "normal" people that's par for the course, I suppose.
