Anyone running 9" or 10" wide wheels in 18"diameter?
« on: January 19, 2014, 08:27:31 PM »
Trying to see what's out there in a slightly wider wheel.  I'm just not able to keep the tires from slipping on the street with all the power I'm putting down.  Looking to go a bit wider.

I run 11" for autocross (315 Hoosier A6's), and have spacers for everything... but was hoping someone has a 9" or 10" wheel they can't point me to (that is available today).  Looking to spend some tax return money on wheels and tires for the street.

Thanks!

Not much available off the shelf, but I like my CCWs and they make 'em quick.

Yes... I have a set of CCW's in 11" now, and a set of Forgestar in 11" as well (love them).  I could pull apart the CCW's and go with a new inner piece to make it more narrow... might have to look into that, but wanted to see what was available off the shelf incase they were cheaper / more stylish.  My CCW's are for autocross, and I like having two sets of wheels available for events.

Out of curiousity...what offsets are you using on your CCWs and Forgestar 11" wheels? I'm working up to order a set of 18x11 Forgestars and am still trying to land on the right offset to shoot for. This is for ASP autocross use.

Thanks!

Pwerks just became a forgestar dealer.

They make nice wide wheels for our cars.

Apparently I'm not signed up to get updates when someone responds to my threads... sorry.  Here is what I ordered:

18x11 Forgestar CF5 Deep Concave 5x110 +50 ----- Fitment: 2007 Pontiac

I would be interested in selling mine if you still need a set.  I bought a set of CCW's I was lead to believe were a three piece set, which I planned to convert to 10" wide.  Unfortunately they are not 3 piece wheels, and I currently have two sets of 11" wide for ASP.  Seeing as I don't run Hoosier wets in that 315 size, I really only need one set.

I could sell either the CCW's or the Foregstars... wouldn't matter to me, but the information below is on my Forgestar.

18x11 Forgestar CF5 Deep Concave 5x110 +50 ----- Fitment: 2007 Pontiac

I run longer studs and a 1" spacer in the back for clearance.  Foregstar couldn't give me an offset that wouldn't require the spacer.  I went with a machined hub centric spacer, and not a generic sloppy fitting plate.

Thanks... I see yours are 19", and I'm looking for 18"... but their website lists their catalog.  Wish I had seen this response shortly after you posted as I would have done this already.

Did you go through a dealer here in the U.S. or deal directly with them in Hong Kong?
