yup 380 stoptechs... i thought clearance would be tight with 18" te37 rims but surprisingly i have more clearance with my 18" rims than i do with the style 220 OEM 19" rims.

My ST60's fit fine inside my 18x10 TRmotorsport wheels but I keep melting my wheel weights offI ordered another 4 Apex 18x10's so I can use up my Continental slicks that I have in my garage.

funny, i am actually shopping around for another set of 18" track wheels. this way i can put some advan ad08 or nitto nt05 tires on them (in case rain is in the forecast). trying to find other options that can fit the ST60s

apex seems to be the go-to choice for track wheels. are your TR motorsport wheels the MT1 (the ones in the picture)? i asked ben from tirerack if they would fit my stoptech brakes but he mentioned that they wont.

Yep 18 x 10's at 25P.No clearance issues at all with any of the 275/35 18's that have been on the car.

Yes 275/35 18 NT05's all the way round.The new car is much more neutral than my 08 so the square setup is very good.

I've seen the seat set up at Mosport few weeks ago, and it looks really well. There is also more leg room in the back :-).

Does it help with car control or did you do it mostly for weight? I am thinking about some way to hold me better in the seat, and in the absence of a good harness solution, the seat may be an option.
