Please help with a decision on wheels

I am wanting to get a track set of wheels I am about to push the button on some mono block forged 19" x10 fronts 23 offset and 19" 11 by 43 offset
pretty sure they will work and with the smaller diameter shouldn't have interference with my fenders... thoughts , warnings etc your input is greatly appreciated!

You barely gave an hour and talk about site not being lively. I see at least 25 reads sofar. Not sure anyone on has your answer yet. Track wheels I'm assuming you mean auto x and not drag. I wouldn't think of a dedicated track wheel and rotating being used in the same sentence unless you wanted 315 on all 4 corners.

Your offsets IIRC are exactly the same as a 1LE with the same wheel width (just 19's vs. 20's). You will not have any rubbing problem.

Thanks Bruhop I appreciate it even if it was a 20 offset in the front should be fine I am thinking as it would just push it out a hair . Now to figure out a good tire size probably need to measure how low stuff underneath is first

Found this site was a good one

This set was ordered for a 17 1LE originally so wife could always use them lol
my concern now is if my Ridetech level 2 coil overs are offering the same strut clearance as the 1LE has it looks tight...

At 19" there will be slightly less strut clearance than at 20" in the same width/offset/backspacing due to strut inclination in front view. Guessing about 3mm 'tighter'. Before I suggest any minimum tire and wheel to strut clearances, how much do you trust your ability to measure those clearances and how set are you on using specific tire makes/models/sizes?

As long as the tires you get are either non-directional or have a specific "outside", you can at least swap tires side to side on the same axle. Road courses always have 360° more turns in one direction than in the other, so tire wear is apt to be a little different side to side.


Off-topic probably does get a bit busier later into the evening, technical sections less so. At 10 PM I want to forget I even have a computer. If I'm even still awake.

No reason these shouldn't fit. I ran that set up on my car then switched over to 19x11 square

I saw your post last night, I don't track my car, only straight line racing. So I have 17s and can't help you.
But I will comment now just to up my post count.
Hope this was helpful.

good call Norm thanks never thought about the 19 having a different contact point possibly could use a small spacer here to clear or reduce the -2.4 front camber
re 71's in the 305x 4 is my goal if I can

Can always go back to the V8 vs V6 thread and get a few more posts under your belt there.
