    15's. Isn't that what these cars are supposed to have? Nothing else looks right.

    15" Trigo Knock Offs

    I feel 15" wheels look correct. People mention issues with buying tires that diameter size, not been an issue for me. Not to mention, great people out at the Trigo company. I have two sets - one race (Hoosier) and one road (BF Goodrich).

    15 inch FIA Trigo knockoffs with natural finish...I think they look best on FIA cars. Tires are Firestone Indy 500s, purchased upon Allen's suggestion that people who tried them like them better than the more common BFGs. I'm happy with them...ride and handling are good for "spirited" highway use, but I don't do track days or autocross, so can't say how they compare under those conditions.
