Thanks. I should have been more clear: I understand what homologated means but I do not know what the OP's sanctioning body allows to be fitted on cars in the OP's class. So I was asking "what wheels, tyres, sizes, brands, etc." are homologated.

Sorry!

The follow-up questions are stuff like "how long are the stages?" etc. but we're not there yet.

16 or 17 inch wheel would be good.... not too worried about whose name is on it or how much it weighs or anething like that..... just need a good reliable setup




..... no longer than 4 miles and no shorter than 2



just kindof a club thing no sanctioning

OK then start cheap. I do not know of any gravel 17s but I am sure they're out there.

- Call up your local teams and ask to buy a few sets of their used tyres. They're in more of a hurry than you and they have more money, so this makes sense.
- Look into a sturdy roadgoing M&S on a cheap (ugly, bought used) set of stock road wheels to get started.
- Win the lottery. Then call Hankook (see if they make an R201 in your size) and Kumho (ask about R800 I suppose) and so on. Also call Compomotive and tell them your fitment needs and have everything shipped. Makes sure it's a decent lottery. I left Michelin out because lotteries only go so far.

Heh-heh... My fault. The mod should have written something clearly!

To the OP: Make sure to ask whether the wheels you buy clear your brake setup, whatever that may be.

anething in the mid range or is it all low or high in the wallet department?
Gravels are not cheap, and I think the economy of scale has at least something to do with that. If you are just out having fun once in a while and the roads are actual roads, not proving grounds or the moon or anything, look into civilian roadgoing M&S stuff with lots of thick tread chunks. It's a place to start and even if you don't like them you can use them to drive to the store etc. instead.
