Author Topic:   98 Integra GSR getting new wheels and tires!... NEED HELP!!!

I own a 98 Integra GSR and I race at my local solo race events. Unfortunately i'm really dissapointed with the grip and handling of the stock tires (195/55 R15), they produce alot of understeering, blocking me of getting all the power of the engine and suspension out of it. I would like to know some advice of what is the best wheel size (and weight), and the best tire size and brand that will give me the best grip handling so I can get all the power out of my car...Thank you

For Autocross, a 16" rim is better than the 15" stock rim. Staying with stock rims, go with a 205/50R15 tire-the Bridgestone RE730(Z rated and also good in the rain). Cost is $94 each at tirerack.com. As far as rims go, Lenso makes some more affordable lightweight rims. Go check out their website. For understeer, have a rear strut tower brace installed. Great car to autoX with. Have fun.
