I have a 18x10 et 25 square setup currently with 265/35/18 front, 285/35/18 Hankook RS-3 tires. Used for mainly street driving, with 2 track sessions per year.
A few questions:
1. I curbed one wheel pretty badly. Is it possible to get these repainted? I am thinking that it may cost $200 to repaint the Hyper black finish, but my fear is that a repair shop won't be able to match it. Should I just buy a new wheel and keep the curbed one for a spare?
2. I want to switch tires to Michelin PSS. I liked the Hankooks, but in 4k miles of driving and 4 days of track sessions and 1 autocross, the tires look pretty done on the edges. I assume the Michelin will last longer. Should i get the 275/35/18 setup or stay staggered?
3. Also is rotation only front to back or can they be rotated to sides also (Are the michelins directional)?
Thanks in advance. Great wheels---look beautiful on Interlagos Blue!
