Well I just got a new set of wheels. Traded out some work for the set. They're Dazz Matiz 18" 3 piece. I need to decide whether I want to keep my SSR's or the Dazz wheels. Any input? Thanks..

Well whichever I decide on keeping I'll be selling the other. Actually I'd like to find someone with a nice set of racing 15's, or 16's. To trade.

see what I'm thinking is, driving on the Dazz's for a bit, while getting the SSR's powdercoated gun metal grey. The sell the dazz wheels or trade them off. The kid I got the wheels off of just paid $3000 a couple of months ago. Pretty crazy if you ask me.

Which SSR rims did you have? Lighter is always better and anything past 16" you are losing performance.

Andrew:

How am I losing performance with my 17's? The diameter of the tire I am running is an exact match of the stock 195/55/15's. Heres the table from a rotational diameter calculator:

Specification Sidewall Radius Diameter Circumference Revolutions Difference
195/55-15 4.2 in 11.7 in 23.4 in 73.7 in 860 / mile 0.0%
205/40-17 3.2 in 11.7 in 23.5 in 73.7 in 860 / mile 0.1%


Other than having the extra meat on the tires to grab, I wouldnt think you would be losing that much on the street and of course I run stock 15's on the track, just curious.

Well let me first say that these wheels are just for street. I've also come to the conclusion that I will be selling the Dazz wheels.
About the wheel weight. Diameter isn't the only thing that effects the performance. IIRC, if you take a circle, in this case a wheel. 5lbs isn't going to affect a wheel that much if you put it directly in the middle. But if you move to the outside the 5lbs becomes a much greater force. So if you have a set of 15" wheels that the majority of the diameter is tire, I would think that a 17-18" wheel since the rim itself is bigger and most likely heavier that would effect performance as well right? Or I could be talking out my a$$..

17's really kill performance, especially on on FWD 4-cylinder that needs all the torque it can get.

Example: I ran a 15.1 @ 90 with my stock 15" SE-R wheels. I went back to the track a few weeks later, the car completely the same except I had my 17" Borbet wheels on and could only get a 15.5 @ 88 out of the car.
