Will these wheels fit?

Is it possible to make 14x7s fit? Ive seen some people with the 15s on the track. Just wonder if what could make them fit like what the offset would have to be and would it fit over caliper?

honestly if you just want some light weight wheels look for some 99-00 GT star fish wheels...they are 17x8 and to be honest they are lighter then my '04 16x7.5 v6 wheels were. i loved running them both on and off the track

I agree with 1slosix, those starfish wheels are pretty light and useful for the track.

about as heavy as the v6 wheels...although compared to what you're rolling on now you'd probably poop yourself at the acceleration increase...it's all about rotational mass which is why big rims don't work well on our cars

RT6's always look heavy to me..i can see why you'd want to track on something else...It's like david I wanna see what he could run on lighter wheels and not his 18's.
