      New wheels?

      Hi
      This past summer I took up autocrossing in my Aveo. Since it's a 2005, it came with 4 x 5.5 wheels. For the class I'm in, I can go one inch larger in diameter, but the width must stay the same. Anybody know where I can get a 15 x 5.5 wheel for this thing?
      Thanks!

      Nobody? Maybe I'll have to jump to a different class next year. Oh well.

      I would try tirerack or discount tire. I've used both in the past with very good experiences.

      I know the rules for autocross changed quite a bit since I did it, and your sanctioning my be different...

      When I was running autocross the rim width wasn't as important as tire width... you could run a slightly wider rim with a stock width tire and still fall into the same category in most classes.. Which class are you running it?

      I "think" the rims that will fit the aveo in 15" rim that is 5.5 are off a mini cooper. i forget the center bore of a mini copper. I think the aveo is 56.6, I know a honda is 56.1 and vw is 57.1. Centerbore is important. The honda, kia, and yaris all have a 4x100 15x5.5 rim, but you will need to heck offset and centerbore.

      I think there are no aftermarket wheels in that size.
