In Reply to: Those that are running 17" wheels, what size tires posted by anthony on October 23, 2001 at 02:42:05:

I am running michelin pilot mxx3's all around on FIKSE FM/5's 17x8 up frontand 17x9 in the rear(i didnt want rims that wide).

about the speed...i have an 88 2.3 w/ 113k miles and a JC chip and GS performance maybe i have a few morehp than brother has an 89 M3 with 70k miles bone stock....with stock rims and stock sized tires...

When we race i cannot pull on him except for a very little bit on the top end...before the 600 rev limit advantage.

So yes...17's will slow you down a little, but not if you get ones that arent heavy as shit. SSR comps do the job also....

Oh an according to my g-tech(i know...i know) i can still run 0-60 in the low 6's...
