Re: X 1/9, Wheels/Lancia wheels

I pulled a set of 14x6 rims off a lancia beta coupe.
They were aftermarket rims, MOMOs, actually, with hopes
of putting them on my X1/9.  

They had 215/60 tires on them, and they *barely* fit on
the rear of my X1/9.  If there is anything resembling a 
bump in the road prepare to introduce sheet metal to rubber.

The front had some trouble - I couldn't mount them.
IIRC (~5yrs since I tried), the interference was from the 
sidewall of the tire rubbing on the spring. I think I 
was about 3/8" away but the details are all kinda fuzzy !

Maybe 185's would do it ?

BTW: Swing by southern Maine and you can try em on.
