75 + Track Day = 14/15/16 or 17 inches???

Post by 75 GTA »

I´m tuning my 75 2,0 TS for a Track Day (April 23) and I´m confused about the wheels to use...

Probably the best choice for my car (stock discs) are the 15 Inch rims on 205/50R15...

What about you 75/Milano guys...what kind of rims do you use on Track Days and racing events...and why...

205/50-15, plenty of available tires, light total weight and does the job very well.

I´m going for a set of Continental Sport contact.

Not the best choice but it´s what I have laying around in my garage :lol:

I also have some 195/50 Yokohama A520 but I think 195 will look too skinny on the big-ass 75 :wink:

The 205 Conti is a good start. The Yoko will most likely be about as fast. The width difference isn't that big. If you have a narrow rim the 195 can even be better to drive.

I will use a 7" wide rim so I guess that 205´s will be a better fit than 195´s.

Errr. are they ROAD tyres???

Hardly track or race......... try some proper cut slicks, dunlop D01J/D02, Toyo888's, or proper racing slicks. You won't look back!

Hi there Andrew!

I´m looking for some Yokohama´s 032´s but I´m not lucky finding ones in this size :?

For starters, I´ll use this 4 Michelins 205/50R15 that I have laying around in the garage :lol:

What about tire pressure? :?:

My TS has now finally "15 fitted.

I choose those teledials from 156´s Lusso´s.

Not the best look but...the best I could find for a reasonable price.

I also fitted the 205/50 Michelins while searching for some 032 like Mats.

Tire pressure Mats? :D

I heard the A032s are g*y. Is that true? I need to buy tires in the next....ummm... 2-3 hours. I'm leaning towards the A048 Medium compound

Yes I was replying to you. Seems like it doesn't matter what I say about tires to anybody in NA they have a totally different view based on whatever.
I'm not trying to start anything here I'm just saying that maybe the tires are different depending on markets and I know the tracks are so maybe it doesn't matter what I think?
