Wheels and Tires

The wheels are Forgestar CF5V:

  • Front: 19" x 9.5/10"

  • Rear: 19" x 12"

The lug nuts that came with the wheels are closed and powder coated black. I'm going to replace them with open titanium nuts. Likely these:

  • [20] KAT-6882; Titanium Lug Nut, 12pt M12-1.5 ($6.99 each; need 20)

I need to figure out how long the studs should be. The custom Hoosier hubs take press-in or screw-in (1/2"-20) studs.


Apparently some Forgestar wheels need hub-centric spacers… I need to figure out if I need to purchase some (Ken’s thread). OD: 72.56mm; ID: 70.3mm


I decided to buy inexpensive tires (just over $1k for all four) for the build. I'll upgrade to Michelin Pilot Sports once the car is built.

  • Front: Nitto Invo 275/30 ZR19

  • Rear: Nitto Invo 325/30 ZR19


Wheel Dollies

I bought a set of 6313 dollies. They're great, but my car is so low that I need to jack it to get the dolly frame to clear the chassis. Looking at the specs the 6313 has 4" casters whereas both the G4520 and G7016 have 3" casters which I assume means that they are lower profile. The G7016 is positioned for SUVs, but in the pictures it appears as though it has a lower profile (i.e, the part that need to clear the chassis) than the G4520 due to how the rollers are mounted. Can you send me the minimum chassis clearance for both the G4520 and the G7016.
