---===::: THREAD RESURRECTION :::===---
I ordered a set of Drifts in matte black today.
Sweet 8) I love mine and the price is oh so right.
I plan to order a set in 19x9.5 all around and use my stock tires (lots of life left). Anybody see a problem with clearances or going to a front 9.5 vs. stock 9.0 width ?
hope this is not a dumb question but do I have to run TPMS with my track wheels?
No, you don't "have to". You will get the idiot light though. If you don't want that, get one of my canisters from eBay and a spare set of tpms to put in it and you are free to run whatever tire and wheel combo you like!
I don't see a problem running that setup. Nitto states that their 255/40/19 Invo can even be used with up to a 10 inch wide tire.
I'll echo Puffer. You'll get a light and a warning on the message center. I just reset the warning every time I start the car and live with the light. It doesn't bother me too much since I disable TC/AdvanceTrac every time as well. Just another item added to the list...
No, but you will get an "idiot light" on the message center after 1/2 a day or so. You can press "reset" to clear it. I cycle my message info to the blank screen by pressing "info" until blank while on grid.
I'm ordering mine today. Not worried about a light on the dash as I don't plan to be looking down!
I realize this is an old post, but what exhaust are you referring to? AR long tubes or Magnaflow? Any video with it?
Mike, this is the exhaust on that car:
Here is that car on track with the shorty exhaust.
Sweet , tight track. Always good when you blow by a Corvette! Exhaust sounds great.
If they come in this finish...they WILL be perfect!!!
Whoa that could be pretty pimp.
LMR just shipped out a replacement SVE Drift that I ordered as I managed to damage the lip of one during an off at the last track event.
The wheel hit the backside of a raised curb, going sideways.
To my pleasant surprise, despite the wheel lip being bent/misshapen, the spokes didn't fail and I didn't see any other noticeable damage. That's good to know these things can take an impact without completely disintegrating.
And for those that are asking why I don't just repair this one: at $150/each for a new wheel, it's not really worth the effort.
Agree, I've been using the 19x9 Drifts on track days and as my daily driver wheels... they seem to be robust.
And no way I'd repair one for $90 (or whatever).... then wonder if the repaired wheel was as strong as a new wheel.
I've been waiting 6 weeks or so for the 18x10 Drifts to be back in stock, and they are as of yesterday. yay me.
Good to know Drew. Thanks for sharing your experience. It certainly makes me less concerned about how they'd fail. FWIW, a friend of mine with a perf pack V6 smacked a curb and shattered his stock rim.
And if somebody would tell you to repair a $150 rim, I would not have anything nice to say to them.
Dark Stainless is out and supposedly in stock. Somebody with a KB please go buy a set, so I can see what they look like. Thanks!
18 x 10 $169.99/ea
18 x 9.5 $189.99/ea :
Check your own link for pics of KB with the wheels! :
I wouldn't mind a set in that color. Maybe once I retire the F14's I'll grab a set of these.
