I agree. 16" wheels are no good. Go with 18". They will fill better. If they're too heavy get the 17" E34 M5's. Those are pretty light.
That is gonna be one hot car!!!!! Please, Please take pics asap!! this is gonna be nuts. How is the balancing gonna be. A heavy V8 in the front of such a light car? Maybe someone can explain that to me.
The next question is, what type of system are you gonna go with; supercharger or turbo charger?????
