So, I’ve autocrossed my 6month old Pilot Super Sports into slicks and the state of Virginia has decided my car poses a danger to society.

Naturally, I took this opportunity as an opening to purchase some all seasons for daily driving and some lightweight wheels and 200 tread wear tires for autocrossing.

Unfortunately, my factory wheels are 18x8 up front and 18x9 in the rear. Apparently, nobody on the planet makes 18x9 wheels with a 5x115 bolt pattern so I’m forced to buy OEM wheels to affix my 200 tread wear tires.

Goodbye dreams, goodbye money (used OEM wheels are a fortune, and weigh a ton).
