Default C6 Grandsport Track Wheels.

I am looking to purchase a complete set of wheels for track days. The car is a 2010 Grandsport.

Do I look for OE Wheels or is there other brands that can take the stress of road course track days.

You can buy OE knock offs but I don't trust these wheels.

Prefer Black wheels to hide the brake dust.

These are wider than factory. No clearance problems ?

Also what tire sizes, factory are staggered with larger wheel dia vs front.

18" all around ? factory is 18" front 19" rear, So what tires to keep the traction control system happy ? front dia tires are less than the front.

I have always found as long as you keep the front tires shorter then the rear tires you're fine. I have run at different times up to a 2 inch spread between front and rear with the front being shorter and I have never had any issues.

I happen to run a 315 30-18 front and a 345 35-18 rear and they work perfectly.

No Rubbing issues on the front with much wider tires. Any mods required to fit ? going from 9.5" wheel to 11"

What offset /backspacing spec to use ?

I am also looking into new track rims. Even the OE rims aren't high enough quality I feel. They can bend easy if hitting curbing on corners in track.
