My suggestion would be to pick the wheel you like first, if it has an 8.5" then that's great because you can maximize your tire's performance. If not, I wouldn't consider it to be a deal breaker...

Yikes, I've never seen that video but I already knew the Element fire extinguishers don't work well when windy. Despite that, I still chose to keep 2 in the center console to help buy time.

To get this, what you'll want is a big muffler that's also high-flowing (i.e. straight through or close).
