Anyone out there using 15" wheels for track days or racing? How about 18"? Make contact if you are, we want to try a little bit of back to back testing with probably the lightest aluminium wheels available {ours :D} Contact by message, e-mail, phone {01543 306681}, or £20 notes with your address on {our favoured option ;)}

15s weigh 5½kgs
18s weigh 9.2kgs (as close to ETCC minimum as practical)
Not having weighed standard wheels can't give an exact difference but you'be looking at 2kgs at least I would have thought.

In November I will be going to a track day at RAF Alconbury with my Leon. I run 8x18 RS4 wheels with 225/40 tyres. I'm happy to do some kind of back to back test for you on that day if you want it doing...

15s are our main interest because of their excellent weight, 18s are being tested in Belgium next month on an Evo {the rumours about us choosing that event because there's cheap beer are totally untrue... :D} Still would be interesting to see what you think of them on your car, we'll see what we can do.

Oh might be an idea to get a brake caliper profile too......
4 x 100PCD - M12x1.5
Stock offset is ET38

ET35 is also fine.

Possibly the best thing we could do is get a set for this track day if it happens, then the lucky people who can get them on {including VWs ;)} will be able to do a comparison ~ god knows what tyres we'd slap on though...... 32Rs possibly (although 006s would be very interesting for us} or would people prefer 'road' tyres?
Thanks to demand and events we won't be dragging any testing sets here until the Mewla, Woodpecker, Flanders and Donnington FIA GT race have passed ~ mid October, then we get Jersey :wow:
