Look out F-stock cause i got my tires and wheels are on the way. :-B Picked up the tires today from the tirerack warehouse here in Shreveport. Good old Kumho 255/40s. Ordered the wheels from Karkraft for $129 per wheel and they are Ford wheels.
Well i use my extra wheel and tire combo for racing. The 255/40's make the wheel well look empty but for racing they are perfect. The 275/40's will fit but for auto-x there is too much tire for the rim and will roll over onto the sidewall and i don't want that.
What else have you done to compete in FS? I am doing the same thing. I have a K&N and Simpson harnesses. I'm looking into wheels, tires. Eventually (when the $ comes) I will go with Koni struts. I don't know about the sway bar change, it already pushes enough. What do the wheels look like?
The wheels that i have are the same that came on the Bullitt. I have changed the front sway bar to the Steeda 1.375 inch tubular. What i have noticed about our cars is that we don't have enough spring rate in the front for auto-xing. By adding a larger sway bar it will add some understeer but aides in roll stiffness, adds tires life, and grip. There is talk about doing away with the changing to struts/shocks to aftermarket types in FS. So i'm waiting to see what is the outcome of that. Me also is considering going to the Koni DA's but i'm waiting to see if they are gonna change that rule or not before spending $800. :-B
I had not heard about the possible new rule change regarding the struts. I'm glad you told me because I was already talking to some Koni folks and they were already talking me into buying a set and then immediatly re-valving the new ones, at $100 bucks a strut after I pay the initial amount. That is big bucks, but hey I gotta catch those 1LE Camaros.
