Rear wheels

What is the smallest sized rim I can buy that would fit over the back Brembos. 2010 2ss/rs. Looking to pick up a back set of tires for drags. Would even go steel.

18" without any hassles, 17" in certain brands I've read, but you will need new lower control arms that have the cutouts in them (BMR I believe)...

I run a set of Vette 18x9.5 +40mm wheels on the rear at the track. They are pretty cheap to come by. They weigh ~23lbs vs the stock 20" weight of ~32lbs.

I don't know if ALL 18" wheels will clear the brakes, I am not a wheel expert, but I do know the vette wheels worked.

If you search around you can get them pretty cheap, ~$130 ea for the painted ones. I'm running the 18x9.5 +40 w/ 285/40/18s all the way around now. Some modification is necessary to get the wheels to clear on the front.
