I was wondering...is it a good idea to put drag radials on stock S13 rims for racing at the track??? I have the 7 spoke alloy from my '91 SE, looking to buy the tear drop style from '89-'90. Whichs rims are lighter/better/wider??? I know they're both 15". I think they're the same width. Any ideas???

I'm not positive, but are the teardrop rims on 89-90 S13s 14"? The 7-spoke alloys (I've got'em too) are 15x6.5, aren't they? I'm also curious about what they weigh though.

The 1989-1994 wheels (regardless of design) are all 15x6" +40.

OK. http://www.freshalloy.com/ I stand corrected. I could have sworn they were 6.5" wide. Anyways, what do they weigh?
