Looks like a good start.

Mostly Chump racing?

With the 4.25 FD, you might consider either 195/50-15 or 205/50-15.

I'd suggest a 7.5 or 8" wheel and run a 225/45-15

I would agree if speeds and lack of traction was present. But a set of sticky narrow tires and the narrow wheels would cut down the upsprung weight.

But like I said.. track conditions and speed would be a deciding factor to move up to larger heavier wheels.

No experience with your setup directly, but integra brakes all around in my B20 pan at maybe 70% threshold braking coming off a decent mid-speed sweeper... That made my oil warning light flash... But I was also running 1/2 full(1/2 on the dip stick, so maybe 3qts?) of oil at the time.

Anyway I'm diggin' this new crop of "noobs"...

Comes to the forum with a racecar racecar. Not questions on how to build a psuedo-wannabe-racecar-daily. :bigok:

Welcome!

Considering they are running a 195/55-15 currently, that is a little over-sized, especially with the lower 4.2 FD.

Dropping down to a 50 series tire will help get some acceleration back.
