What companies make a 18x12 wheel for the rear of the GTR? Looking for something that isn't astronomically priced since this will be for the strip mostly. Weight doesn't really matter.

Thanks.

I heard einkees or soemthing like that ( spelling might be wrong most likely ) is a good light and track wheel for the GTR . Their seems to be 1 specific model ( I think c1 they call it ) that has the proper offsets for us .

Easy. Running a 305 tire in the rear on a 18x12 vs 18x11 or let's say running 295 in the rear on a 18x12 instead of 18x10.5
Given. Unnecessary weight, or an improperly fitted tire both have disadvantages. I was under the impression that a person who is familiar at drag racing understand wheel/tire widths, and asked a very specific question. He looks like he already has an 18" wheel, but wants a wider tire (or a wheel that fits the current size better).

Shrug ya never know. I always like to ask before giving a recommendation. But yes the Forgestar 18x12 might be your only option. I looked through my Volk/Advan list and no 18x12.

I'm guessing he's probably going to run 335/30/18?

How much do they weigh Matt? Where are they made?
The F14 18x11 we do for Porsches usually runs around 21 lbs. A 18x12 will be similar. Lowest offset we could do would be +36 on the F14 or CF5. The 5 spoke CF5s are heavier than the F14 though.

The blanks are made in Asia and are them machined in the US at Forgestar's facilities to your preferred specs.

SSR has 18x12 wheels also. Offset will be run to figure out.
