Hello. I'ts been a while.

Sold the C5 and now have a C7.

I need suggestions on a 4-square wheel/tire combo for the C7.

Many, many thanks in advance.

My solution for track wheels/tires went like this: what works? what's available? Is the cost reasonable?

Tires: Nitto NT01 275 front and 305 rear. DOT soft rubber, 100-rated. Cost, about $1200. Your experience may vary.

Wheels: OEM 18 x 10.5 Z06 aluminum Speedlites (Italian). Got four of these shipped for about $1500 brand new.

Stock C6Z06 wheels then 295/30-18 and 325/30-19 Michelin Cup2s, I got also hub centric spacers

Stock C7Z06 wheel then 295/30-19 and 345/25-20 Michelin Cup2s

Street wheels and tires then Project 6 wheels 19x10 and 19x12 then tires 305/30-19 and 345/30-19 michelin cup2 (saving up for it)

I got best times with cup2.... instagram aalmohannad (carscloseby)

for full slicks then go 18x11 and 18x13 wheels with Michelin Porsche Cup full slick tire (if anyone can post sizes since forgot what they are after conversion, they use different numbers)

for straight line performance the best is R888, you can do stock front tires (non run, like flat Michelin 4s) then rear 345/30-19 R888

I went with two sets of BC forged RZ39 monoblock 18X11 and 18X13. Hoosier R7 315X30 18 and 335X30 18. Nothing is cheap, but you get what you pay for and on the track you don't want wheel failures. Reach out to PK Auto. Great people to work with.
