Wheel discussion

So from what I can tell I have 8.5mm wide in the front and 11mm wide on the rear. I found some wheels I would like to buy but they the fronts are not available. If I buy the appropriate offsets could I get away with wide wheels front and rear or would that ruin the handling of the car?

Is this a racer, or a drifter? What surface are you running?

With a harder front tire, you could get it to work just fine. You need to check if it is legal where you race to use wide wheels and tires in the front. Just subtract 2mm offset from the appropriate narrow wheel and it will fit within the body.

The car is for drifting and not racing. I actually swapped the rear wheels to the front last night to check to see how they fit. They fit perfectly. Only difference was the inside width and it didn’t cause any issues that I could see.

Ok so after some more forum reading I found out about the online body spec list and found out my wheels sizes and offsets.

So now my curiosity is which drifts better. Narrow front and rear, Narrow and Wide, or wide front and rear. I bought a new ASC set withat comes with Narrow all the way around. Just need to get me another set of wide. Thought about buying a new Subaru body but they are pricey.
