17's on a CTR

Anyone know the best place to find a photo of a CTR on 17's (preferably lowered 30mm)?

Some closer shots plus down the side of the car. I have no problems with these catching at all although the extra front camber does help

17's are great for FN2... especially if you can get a set that fit a BBK without spacers!

Better for acceleration

I was told that 17's = more spin = more acceleration

A smaller wheel will provide greater acceleration but lower top speed, assuming the same weight.

Obviously i'm proceeding on the basis that it will have a smaller tyres as it's a smaller wheel

Re: 17's on a CTR

Cant see the logic anyone running 17's would run 225 45 17 or there speedo would be out? You could run 35 profile on an 18 to achieve the same result without having a smaller wheel.

Run a lighter 17 and you will get more acceleration than running lower profile

Agreed.

You have the weight of a 17' wheel plus a 225/45/17 tyre

vs

18' 225/40/18 tyre
19' 225/35/19 tyre

so your looking at 1-2kg weight saving per wheel
