Welcome to Texas Spec7
Home of the Texas SRX7 Road Race Series
I am a new spec 7 racer (In the Colorado region) looking for some recommendations on wheels. I have 13 lb steel wheels on the car now, and am looking for advice on what the best wheel is for Spec7. It would be nice if they weren't over $200 a wheel, but all advice is welcome.
we all use panasports. I have never bought any new so not sure what the price is. BBS made a 13", not sure if they still do. hope this helps a little.
Thanks Lance! Panasports seem fairly hard to find up here... I will check into BBS but they will probably be half what I paid for the car
Panasports are what most of us run, but since they have doubled it price in 5 years, that is your call. Also Diamond steel wheels are a option too. They are pretty cheap. I would just google and find link. Panasports can be ordered still. We use to have a local source but they are out of business.
How much do the Panasports weigh? I will check out the Diamond wheels website to see how much those weigh. Thanks!
I am not seeing any spec7 legal wheels on that site, for our region they have to be 13"x7" with a 4" backspacing. Am I just not seeing them, or did you custom order them from these guys?
Check these out.
Don't we use wheels with 4 x 110 bolt pattern? Please correct me if I'm wrong.
Your absolutely right, Randy. Thanks for the correction.
Other than new panasports, I couldn't find anytihng else.
Thanks, Ethan. The Panasports look cool and I like Spruell. They seemed the most helpful of the folks I called when I needed a replacement wheel. I have a set of the Diamond racing wheels as well and I think they probably work just as well for a hacker like me. At $88.50 each (13 x 7, 4 x 110, pick your own backspacing) the price is right if I ding one (the single Panasport cost me $265.00!) Here is the link to Diamond:
