    WTB - autocross wheels and tires; 3.55 gears

    WTB - a set of 17 wheels with autocross tires (Nittos, Hoosiers, etc.) mounted on them. Used wheels and/or tires OK but must be serviceable for autocrossing. I want to do do some testing before winter so I can be ready for spring. Prefer something in the Northeast so I can pick them up.




    I have a FFR Mk 3.1 roadster. Current front wheels are 17x9 with 151 mm backspace and 24 mm offset. Rears are 17x10.5 with 174 mm backspace and 28 mm offset.




    Also looking for a set of 3.55 gears if anyone has a set for sale.

    Thank you!

    Craig,
    Not to spoil anyone's potential sale of used rubber but keep in mind that soft compound tires such as R-comps, Hoosiers etc. often age out before they wear out. A lightly scuffed 3 year old tire that has gone hard may actually be less usable than a fresh one that is 50% worn.

    You aren't being a "spoiler", Jeff! Just a realist and I appreciate your insights.

    I realize that super soft tires "age out" pretty quickly. Was hoping to get lucky and find someone that bought a set and then changed their mind, plans, budget, whatever. Almost anything would be better than the 10-year old Sumitomos that are on the car now!

    In the meantime, I'm just trying to get as much seat time as possible.
