New GA1R & Michelin Super Sports

A huge thanks to Tony for ordering my Forgeline GA1R wheels for me. Everything is perfect and I could not be happier. 20x10 front, 20x11 rear all polished. The tires are Michelin Pilot Super Sports 285x35 front and 295x35 rear. No fitment issues at all, and they look awesome.

Did you consider 315's out back? I want to do a similar setup with PSS's, but 285 or 295 in front, and 315 out back. Not sure what will fit.

Thanks, your earlier post helped me confirm the sizes etc. Can't wait to get back to Road Atlanta to feel the difference.

I was trying for an almost square set-up for the track (couldn't quite make myself go 285 all around), plus my understanding was that the overall size difference between 315 and 285 was going to cause issues with traction control etc.

There have been other posts with the weight of the oem wheels, but I can't recall exactly what they were. The new wheels are just under 20 lbs each.

I plan on finding the old post and get a close figure, in the next couple of days.

Thanks to everyone for the nice comments on the new wheels. Can't say enough good things about Tony for getting the offsets correct and making it all happen. Also can't say enough about the quality of the Forgeline wheels...the pictures don't do them justice.

Thanks again.

At an msrp of 1600 per wheel... been eyeing these for almost a year now... just don't have the liquid funds!


BTW those look amazing on your VR, the polished really pop!

Looks killer, but I'm biased. Only the coolest people rock the GA1R
