  1. Can anyone tell what's the feeling of a 17 inch on the Meg? Is it giving better handling than the stock 18 inch? Thx
     
  2. I’m sure more intelligent people will confirm but I’m sure 18’s are the smallest due to the size of the Brembo’s on the front.
     
  3. No, 17's fit.

  4. I said there’d be more intelligent people to answer.
     
  5. I'm far from intelligent.
     
  6. I saw lots of people out there using 17'' for track but some of them recommended 18''. I am struggling in between 17" or 18". Let see if there are some intelligent people can advise me.

    Makes very little difference, I've had both and now on 17x9 for track. The extra weight of the bigger sidewalls on a proper tyre outweighs any difference in rim size tbf
     
  8. How would you recommended? And what 17x9 wheel you are using now?
     
  9. I do believe the brakecaliper needs some modding to fit, a different bolt or so?
