We have two that we use. One's a 20 and the other a 24. They work fine.

The gray one is an old faithful. Cheap POS but has NEVER let me down and has gone everywhere.

We can make the right set up for the performance you are looking for. We can also service the wheels here in the states and our delivery is about 4 weeks... Please let me know if you have any questions... And our Motorsport pricing is very competitive...






I just bought these - havenít had time to put on yet.

You should call them. Myles picked ours up in the Delaware location and I know he told me there was an additional discount attached to that.

Same. Love it.

I have had many tow vehicles in the last 15 years and this is my favorite. Like your's I am sure, mine tow's anything I ask it to with no drama whatsoever.

For me it makes the whole track weekend go that much better.

Front R7 315/40 or 315/30/18? Rear will be 345/35/18.

NCCC requires that wheel size be +/- 1" of stock for C7 Group 1 cars. Due to this, I am looking at running 19x10 on the front and 19x12 on the rear of my 2018 GS. I am considering running the 1S street tire class with Bridgestone 305/19 RE-71Rs on all four wheels. What size of tires would others recommend on those wheels?

For that particular tire the 19 x 11 is the correct size. You can also run a 19 x 11 all around on the GS with that tire...and all honesty...The RE71R does not have a good front tire size. I have heard that the tire is very good.....If you have any questions just let me know..

For anyone looking for tires for 18ís, I made a cheat sheet for tire sizes and diameter.
