[Use Hoosier A3 rather than R3 for autocross]
[17x8.5" stock rims require spacers]

Thanks Dave, both very good points.

I actually intend to take the car on the racetrack as well as the autocross, which was the reason I went with the 'R' tires. I'm sticking with the 7.5" fronts rims for now both for cost reasons and because I want the car to understeer until I learn more about driving a 4-wheel vehicle on the track. Almost all my track driving experience so far is on motorcycles...
