Talking 315/40-18 Drag Radials on 18" Forgestar Wheels

One of my happy customers sent me these photos of his Camaro. He earlier purchased the set of Modulare H1 forged wheels (shown on front of car), but also needed a set of rear drag wheels for the occasional visit to the track. We decided on the Forgestar F14 wheels in 18x11 sizing, for a few reasons.

-They are lightweight
-They are inexpensive
-They fit the Camaro properly, even clearing the SS Brembo brakes
-They kinda matched his forged wheels

The tire he went with is the Nitto NT05-R Drag radial, size 315/40-18. His car is lowered on Pfadt coil-overs. With his Magnacharger under the hood, no doubt these drag radials will help him with traction issues.













Stay tuned, in a couple weeks we'll have the wheels in for member Dangeruss. He is going 18s front AND rear! Should look killer and all business.

Thanks for the photos Alan!

Tony

Thanks Again Nine Ball

I'm lovin both the look & performance of this combo. The fit, finish, concave look & light weight of this wheel is awesome. Although I've only had a chance to take them to the strip once, my 60' time came down by 0.2 seconds (see the thread below). I can't wait to get another chance to head back out to the track, as there is alot more car than driver at this stage of the game.

Thanks again for hooking me up with quality street & track wheels, but most especially for the personal service & expertise.

The all Titanium finish looks great. Is that an extra cost color or will it be one of the standard colors for 2011 ??

Titanium was a standard finish for early 2010, but was discontinued due to them having issues with color matching the finish in batches. It is a two-stage finish, with a black basecoat and semi-transparent silver outer coat. It is no longer available. For 2011, only single stage colors will be offered.

Wow, so these are 18" and clear the front Brembos. I would be needing a slightly different offset in the rear. Can you PM me a price on 2 18x9 +38 and 2 18x10 +45.


Crap, I just realized that the fronts are not the same type of wheel, but in the case of the rear wheels above, will they fit over the FRONT brembos?

Bradshow, the 18x9 wheels will fit up front no problem. I test-fit some 18x10 though, and they do not fit the fronts. The lip runs right into the upper bolted area of the steering knuckle.

with a tread wear rating of 00 and a 5" side wall, those Nto5R's should really hook on the street! can you share your driving impressions?
is there to much flex in the sidewall during hard cornering?
