20" OEM size track tires

Does anyone know what is a decent track tire, road course not drag, that will fit the OEM 20" wheels?

Thanks

Here's what I'm doing right now for track days.

I have a set of rear takeoff wheels coming so I can run 275/40/20 front and back. But I already ordered two Pirelli PZero's to put on them. When I wear out the Pirelli's, I'll probably try the Nitto's - you can get the Nitto NT05 in the 275/40/20 size, it's Z-rated, and about the same price as the Pirelli.

If you find out anything else interesting in your search, post it up here.

I'm hoping to have my tires/wheels done next week, and then I'm going to Pocono to practice.

I do have another set of wheels but there is no way to get them down to the track without them being on the car. So I would swap them out here and then drive down to the track with them on. I have 3 spare rear wheels now (4 counting the broken one) maybe I'll just get another one and put the NT05's on for track days.

I've called a few places and noone around here has any. Closest Nitto dealer is in Sioux Falls and that tire company only has 2 in stock nation wide.

I love the Nitto NT05's. I ordered them from Siem's Tire in Sioux Falls and when I ordered there was only a few left nation wide also. I have 275x40 in the front and 315x35 in the rear. You could run 275's in the rear and 255's up front. I hope you can find some, they are a great tire and reasonably priced. I can't wait until next weekend!!

Edit: I just had them check and there are 8 of the 275x40 available and 2 of the 275x35. He said the 275x40 would probably work all the way around. You can call and talk to Landon at Siem's Tire in Sioux Falls if interested. 605-339-0039.

Nitto NT05R 315/35-20 has the same height as the stock tires, except fits on an 11" wheel. this is a great drag radial.

now the big question is finding a lightweight 20x11 wheel with the right offset.

That's what I am running on my Forgelines, except it's the NT05. The 315's fit very well on my 10" rims with the right offset as well.
