D-force wheels will be available in about 2 weeks. I have 100 wheels expected later this month. 15 x 7, 25mm offset, legal 13 pounds.
Unless you have already done a suspension upgrade, whatever tire you choose is going to be under ulitized. So any learning you do must be quantified as "not quite a SM"
Suggestion, get the car close to SM suspension first, then worry about tires/wheels.
Suggestion #2, have fun
