So this is the last of it and my prized possession. I felt like this was the mod the "made" the car.
3 piece forged. Anodized and brushed centers with polished lips.
18 x 9 +35
18 x 10.5 +19
Hankook Ventus V12 Evo
Condition: The wheels are in good but not perfect condition.
They need a good cleaning and polishing. I typically polished them twice a summer. Once when I put them on in March and once when I put them away around Thanksgiving. I didnt get to polish them this past Thanksgiving. Note: In the pictures below they havent even been washed. Hose was frozen today.
As you can see in the pics there is some rash. None of it very deep. The front two wheels have the majority of it (the picture of the grass denotes a switch from passenger to driver). One rear wheel has very minor rash. The other rear wheel has none.
The front passenger wheel has a slight bend in it. It is not visible. My shop told me when they rebalanced the wheels after a track day. As a result I had all 4 road force balanced. I had it on Pocono north, summit point main, and NJMP lightning afterwards and had no issues.
Tires: I would estimate the front has around 1.5 summers left in them. The rears you'll probably get one summer out of them. By summer I mean a summer with 2-3 track days. I run novice/intermediate so your mileage may vary.
PMs only please. I no longer use the email address hooked up to this handle.
