Hi, just curious what other racers run for offset rims on your metrics. Was in a crash Sat. in first race with new car and need to order new rims. Also, anyone have IMCA tire go bad by going egg shaped or is that just from setting in the sun on the car. Thanks. Race

I run 2" of backspacing on 3 corners and 3" on the left rear.

You should never leave your racing tires sitting in the sun for extended periods of time, the UV rays break down the rubber.

Ok, this may make me sound pretty stupid but, what is a metric?

What about Fords? 84 and 86 LTD? and does it using metric bolts make it any better or worse than standard bolt?
