Wider is Better

Update by Per Schroeder to the Nissan Sentra SE-R project car
Apr 7, 2005

The 15x8 Kosei K1s arrived from The Tire Rack. Weighing just 14.5 pounds, these wheels give our 205/50R15 Falkens all of the support that they need, and then some. We’re hoping a tire manufacturer comes out with a Street Touring friendly 225/45R15 tire to properly utilize all of this rim.

One reason that we chose the 15x8 is that it’s only $169 per wheel in this size. That’s downright cheap compared to other wide and light rims like the Volk. This makes the jump to STX a little less expensive and gives us some room in our budget for that NISMO performance differential we installed.

We’ll be testing them out this weekend in Atlanta at the SCCA National Tour. Wish us luck!
