For the added weight it wouldn't be any more than going with some 20" wheels............and I'm not going to autocross the car often or do track days that often...........yes it is added weight, but for me I think the cool factor outweighs the 8lbs more per wheel.
Although I'm not sure about keeping my 14, I did talk with Eric again today after sending you the link to both sites. He has now come down to $350 a wheel although it will probably take 4/5 weeks and I am seriously thinking about it if I keep the car.
I am going to put the car up on a lift within the next few weeks to actually see how much room I have but I really don't see why
the 305 wouldn't fit.
What I was thinking was going 9.5 in the front with 275's and 10.5 in the rear with 285's. My issue is that the 30/35 sidewall is just too short for my taste and I really want at least a 40 and maybe a 45. Maybe 45 is a little too tall, but I need to check and see when I have it on the lift. Having TrakPak 9.5/10.5 would be so subtle.......it would just be too cool and I doubt anyone would really ever know because the front of the wheel would look exactly as it does now............and you or I could be the only people in the World to have widened OE TrakPak wheels.
You know, the cost isn't much more than buying a set of wheels everyone else has................IMHO
