Great video.

What wheel and tire set up do you use?

Every time I watch one of these video's I want to get to a track immediately.

Great video.

Every time I watch one of these video's I want to get to a track immediately.

Wheels are 18" Forgestars, custom milled to clear front brakes on the 06 300C SRT8.

Tires are Nitto-01's 275/35/18. Excellent slicks with some grooves in them - until they wear down.

We ran a race tonight. It rained during qualification - but radar said the showers would pass by the start of the race.

So - I started with the slicks, even though I had a new set of rain tires mounted on another set of Forgestars.

Guess what - it poured. Lots of slipping and sliding, but I managed a 3rd place and spot on the podium.

Always wanted to try the NT01s. How wide are those forgestars? And just curious about the offset. Do you have 4 or 6 piston calipers?

9.5 inches. 4 pistons. They can machine them to any offset you need.

After I posted the clip with the new Nittos, I realized I had missed a few more good passes. I'll try to edit them in to a new version 2.
