I had a great time running in the stock '14 1LE we recently purchased. This was only my 3rd auto-x event in 15 years, but I managed a few 25 sec runs. I'm thoroughly impressed with how the 1LE...

Chalo,

Why don't we just get some white powdercoated Forgestar F14 18x10.0 or 18x11.0 for the rear? Then you can run the Mickey Thompson 305/45-18 drag radial, and it will match your current...

Factory sensors will work just fine, but you'll need TPMS ring adapters or bands for iForged wheels. They are usually included, but sometimes you have to specify them when ordered.

HRE's are custom built to order, you have to call or email them to specify sizes, offsets, finishes, etc.. Bring at least $6K for the lowest priced forged set. :)

Tom, I've not seen or installed any Ride-Techs before. Sorry, not much help on that brand. The Pfadt and KW brands had the worst tire clearance, so hopefully the Ride-Techs aren't any worse.

That combo will work fine for driving around and straight-line stuff. Out on a road course, however, the narrow front tires will educate you quickly about understeer and mowing grass. ;)

This is correct. But, I'd typically spec a less aggressive front offset than the factory ZL1/1LE wheels, to tuck the tire a little more. You likely don't have a choice with repro wheels, though.

I wouldn't have a problem patching it there. That tire looks pretty worn for only 3500 miles. You must be a "spirited" driver ;)

Wheel guy here. Rims are just the outer lip, not the entire wheel.

Rims = Hoops

Wheels is the correct technical term.
