There are a few things you need to worry about. There are different bolt patterns in the Alcoas. So you need wheels for the correct bolt pattern of the adaptors you plan on using. Stay away from steel wheels unless you use two for the inners in the rear. The steels are just to heavy. As far as tires goes, most commercial tires are out of round. There are some tire companies that make good round tires and the Sumitomos are one of them. If you get a set of tires that are out of round, it's hard to get a good balance. But, you can have them shaved to true them up. It's best to spend the extra time and money on good tires. This will cause less problems down the road.
