New wheels

Received those yesterday....

Forgestar 17"x8.5"
Came with TPMS sensor and all that's needed. Now I just need to get some tires and put the new wheels on for track days :)

Forgot to mention where I got those: http://www.getyourwheels.com/

Sweet wheels, those will look good on TS.

Ah sweet, you're putting dedicated track tires. I'm trying to decide on track tires for my Miata, I'm leaning towards something that I can also street like the Ventus RS3.

What offset are they and do you know their weight? I like that you went with 17s for the track. Those sticky tires are gonna be fun on track

The offset is at 42 which is good enough for 245.
IIRC the weight of each wheel is about 16LBS. Quite a bit lighter than the stock 18" ones.

Toyo Proxes 888 are good for both. They just get a little greasy at the end of the session but they hold up pretty good (don't last as long as the Z214).

I do believe that the Elise came with some Yokohama but I can't remember the type but they were pretty nice. Wouldn't last me 10K miles on the street but that's ok.
