Track wheels/tires for 335i

What wheels/tries are folks running at the track?

I just went to Miller Mototrsport Park this past Saturday with my car to try out my new 18x8.5/18x10 BBS CHs with 235/40 265/35 Falken RT 615s, Quiafe and the Dinan software and oil cooler. It was an outer track open track day.

It got me thinking though...at this rate I figure it might be good to get a dedicated set of track wheels and tires. I was thinking of those light track wheels Turner Motorsport sells with Hoosiers.

http://www.turnermotorsport.com/html..._ID=LTW5-WHEEL

The BBS CHs I have don't rub in the rear. I think I could go to 275/35 without trouble. Only thing is the BBSs have a 40 rear offset while the Turner wheels have a 43 offset. I wonder if it would rub then...


Thanks

Those LTW5 from TMS and **********s look like nice wheels. Note that TireRack offers the Kosei K1 in 17" at $165. The kosei's weigh about the same but cost a fair amount less...

Which Hoosiers were you thinking about? My hesitation with those is I auto-x and do track days. I would like to find one tire that works ok for both. My research has led me back to the RE-01R and the Advan AD047. The folks at the SCCA forums seem to believe that the RE-01R is faster than the RT-615 but not as difficult to drive at a true r-comp.

If all you plan to do is track, how about the Toyo R888 or the Nitto NT-01?

RE-01R user here! Both the RE-01Rs and AD07 are pretty much nearing Rcomps.

The RT-615s are okay for autox, and overheat on track midway through a 25min session. Great value though.
