Hi All,
I will soon be taking my 2001 to a private track day event. I have the possibility of buying some very light Team Dynamics wheels shod with 205/50R15 tires. Wheel is 7” large with a 38 offset. Can it fit? What about the rear wheels covers? I have no way to try them before putting out the cash...

No MPG impact discussion please. Lol. This is solely for track events (and drive to/from there).

Thanks!

If I had to guess, I'd say they'll probably fit.

I'm running 195/55/15 tyres an a 6.5" rim with a 43mm offset (from memory, they are Sparco NS2 rims). I have 10-15mm clearance with the rear spats (can just get my fingers between tyre and spats).

On paper your tyres will sit 5mm further out (10mm overall wider) and your wheel will sit 5mm further out (38mm vs 43mm offset). So inner position is the same and outer will sit 10mm out.

It will be chuffing tight but probably just clear.
