I'd look *real* close at those rules.  You must have the stock wheels on 
the car for stock class, right down to the offest and the backspacing.

This is not to say the "original" wheels.  Aftermarket wheels can be used 
provided that they are *exactly* the same size/Specs as the wheels on the 

This is not a problem, as the 4000q's don't really have a lot of options 
available for Stock Legal wheels.  The 14X6 will be about all that you 
can use.  Instead fo spending big bucks on wheels, go to a set of sticky 
tires like the Yokohama A008RS or the B.F.G. R1's.  You will get much 
more satisfaction and will run quicker than with a wheel upgrade that 
will bump you up to Street Prepared.
