It worth it if you damage a wheel.For me it’s like, I imagine I’ll own this car for 2-3 more years. So being that I don’t track and drive the car too often, that’s probably 4-5 sets of tires. For 18s, tires are about $100-$150 a set more than 17s. The Apex wheels will probably be $1000ish with group buy discount (their existing 17x9 for BRZ is $265 a wheel I believe) and APR is $1100 for a set. So basically it will cost me $850 more to run 18s for 3 years versus 17s. Is $850 worth two months of waiting? Yea. But am I rational person when it comes to car spending? No. So who knows where I’ll end up.
I’ve bent a wheel at the track and the 50% replacement is a great service to their Customers.It worth it if you damage a wheel.
Any thoughts to the new 240 treadwear Cup 2's?
I haven't, but a lot of One Lap guys have done testing with them and like them. They have a facebook group, you could hop on there and ask.Anybody ever run the Goodyear F1 Supercar 3R? Dumb name aside, I have a contact where I can get a solid discount on Goodyear tires. If they're not complete trash, I might try them out.
It shouldn't be this hard to run a 17x9, it sucks.
I'm torn between waiting, which I was hoping to not have to do. It's either that or buy a set of F14 from Forgestar
or buy a set of Advanti Storm S1 in 35 offset and just deal with 7mm spacer at each corner
Yeah, I asked them directly and was quoted 1560 for a set. It's definitely more than the Apex buy, which will probably be around 1k even if their other wheel prices are anything to go by.Have you by chance asked Forgestar for a quote on 17x9 et 42 wheels? I’m seeing different price ranges out there.
For Goodyear Supercar 3Rs, I don’t know much about them on our cars, but a few McLaren owners I follow on Instagram (who track their cars) seem to love them.
The reason the Cup 2 Connects are so expensive is they have built in sensors that can provide real time feedback on temperature, PSI, even lap time on certain tracks apparently. But if your aren’t going to utilize those features (which I imagine requires some even more expensive hardware) then I wouldn’t buy them.
1100?? For which sizes?There is also the 240 treadwear non-connect versions too. I had ordered a set in the beginning of Dec from Costco and they still haven't arrived. Total including install comes out to $1200 which is marginally more than A052's.
Anyhow, I've missed so many track days due to the shipment delay that I decided to order another set of A052's from Tirerack. The A052's came out toe $1100 without install which means it will actually end up costing more than the Cup 2's.
