Yeah the diameter and weight of the wheels affect hp. You should buy some 18'' volks and see what happens!!!!

We`ll be dyno'ing our 20" setup (22lbs-24lbs) versus our new MonoForged Competition 18" product line (16lbs-18lbs) and see if there is a significant difference on the dyno as well as 60-130mph times. We`ll document everything and post it once it's ready.

Back from the dead...

What happens if you put on 17" Apex Arc 8 ~17lbs...would 17" be too small? Could you go too small?

Forget clearing the brakes, just a thought.
