And so it begins.....Picked these up with the profit from flipping the T56 I had picked up.....'07 gt500 wheels with 275 40 18 hankook rs4 rubber - was told tires have one event and 1000 street miles on them - I know these wheels are a bit heavy and only 9.5" wide, but they are a big step up from the 17x8 bullitts and 235 all seasons on there now.....the price was right and at my (lack of) experience level I'm sure they'll be fine

Definitely a solid tire for going to the track ( for years they were considered the " Gold Standard " for Endurance racing ) and you are quite correct the wheels are a step up. Keep us posted on your experiences and don't ever fail to ask questions on this Forum -- folks are super helpful and understand the passion we all have tracking/autocrossing our Mustangs!
