Default auto-x ?

I'm new so I hope this is the right place for this post. I'm building a fox for c-prepared class autocross. It's a 1989 with a maximum motorsports grip box installed, now I need to see what the best 4 lug wheel size would be. I would like to be in the 10 inch wide range. any help would be great! Thanks.

you would almost be better off to do a 5 lug conversion, you would have a larger amount of wheels to choose from

If you want 10" rims, you'll need to swap to 5 lug. Usually 4 lug is 9" at most.

Your still going to have to play with tire size and rim offset to get 10" rims to fit without rubbing.

Good luck, and post up some pics of this project when your close to done. I love wide meats on a Fox.

Thanks I'm seeing that the 9" may be the ticket. I want to do the 5 lug this winter. Funds will be better then. Almost done with the suspension install, then body work. When I get closer I'll put up some pics!
