recommend another wheel

Tucson 302

2013 Black LS #439
I need another set of track wheels and I wanted another set of SVE drift wheels but they are out of stock. Can any one recommend another wheel that's reasonably priced? Like the Enkei's but kind of pricey.
 
Basically the same price as the Enkei's but check out the Team Dynamics from Blowfish Racing.

I like the team dynamics wheels as well.

I'm currently using forgstar f14's, if you're a SVTP member you can get a discount code from American Muscle.

Think the Drifts have the low end of good wheels wrapped up. At 18x10 , 24 lbs. and $150 ea. shipped to your door. Done. Wait or other options,
A step up would be the Forgestars from Vorshlag 18x10, 20 lbs. at $350 a wheel. The T.D. from Blow Fish at $330 a wheel and 24 lbs. The D force from Vorshlag $309 a wheel and 19 lbs.

Weighed mine in at 24 lbs. I'd worry about a 21 lb cast 18x10!

I can't think of another low priced 18x10 that have the right offset. American Muscle might have some that work if you use spacers up front for brake and backspace clearance.

Vorshlag test all their wheel combos on the street, autocross and track. I believe either wheel combo from Vorshlag will stand up to street use. They are quality products from what I've witness at the track. The Forgestars have the best look IMO. The Enkei PF01 is another great option, but like others have said they are all pricey compared to SVE wheel price point. My track wheels are PF01s, no issues after two years of track and autox use.

I don't have a problem with the flow-formed rims at that weight! I have 2 sets of Forgestar F14, and a set of SVE drifts. They all stand up to street abuse.

Thanks for all the input I guess I need to stop being such a tightwad and just buy the good stuff!

Start looking at these and the others seem low cost. Would love to have a set!

Any of the GT500 wheels will work well on the track. Not the lightest (but not the heaviest) and not the least expensive (but not pricey), and they are strong. Only "downside" is they are only 9.5" wide, which isn't really a problem, but you won't be able to run much more than a 275mm tire on these, if that's your goal.

On the other hand, you'd be spending "only" another $4-500 on a set of Enkei PF01s or Forgestar F14s.

There's the new Apex flow formed wheel offered in a group-buy on S197forum if you want the 302S/R look.

Dang it!! I'm not a member to that site.
Is it the same Apex who does bmw wheels? Apex Arc8, EC18 etc???

There's a decent amount of handling oriented discussion in the corner carvers subforum. It may be worth a visit. I don't venture very far from there.


The wheels are indeed the same Apex brand that makes many BMW fitment wheels. They have 18x9.5 and 18x10 sizes in their EC7 style

Thanks for the tip. Registered.
Sooo want those wheels!

Big question is what street based track worthy tires come in 18 inch sizes that are near stock diameter? I can only think of Rivals.

Apex are nice, had them on my M-3. Must be a special run as I'm striking out on the web site.

They haven't officially released their Mustang fitment yet. I think one of their vendors is jumping on the ball early and offering a group buy for the first batch coming in. Here's a link: http://www.s197forum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=111386


Also, the wheels pictured are 18x9.5s. The 18x10s have more depth to them and look nicer.
