Just street wheels and tires right now. 20s on NT555G2s. My next big investment will be Apex 18s and Geforce Rival S 1.5.

I think I'm done with the suspension and powertrain....for now, lol

I ran a few sets of Rivals. They're not bad. But I found the Goodyear Supercar 3s are better, even the non-'R's.

I would probably skip the Rivals as BFG is not aggressively participating in the Track/Autocross wars like others and the Rival S1.5 is not near the top of the heap as much anymore, though they are pretty good for a dual purpose tire ( autocross and track ). I have run BFGs many times over the pas 42+ years and they seem to get involved in the aggressive tire competition , do pretty well and then seemingly drop out. You might call Luke Pavlik ( extra. 4362 ) at Tire Rack , though do it soon as he is running " One Lap of America." He has been at the Rack for 25+ years and tracks and autocrosses himself so you get a real Trackrat who knows what is happening and what is coming. He can give you a solid idea on what might work best for your SC'd beast.
