It seems like no owners or tuners are interested in an 18" alternate wheel as most are focusing on 19's and 20's. Unfortunate state of affairs. It appears that those that are planning or those that are attending track days are doing so on street rubber, not R compounds.

Given the larger front brakes, the backspace dimension and spoke shape is going to be an important factor in finding the right 18" wheel. All that is available now is previous generation wheels run with spacers.

Garage List
CCW will make a 18" forged C10 or C14 wheel that will even fit the Brembo 6 piston 15" BBK, I almost can't believe the barrel will be wide enough but they are already running them on 'vettes with the same kit, impressive.

I have CCW C10 track wheel on my Cayman S, nice, functional stuff for the price.

I am familiar with the C14 and new C140. Good wheel, but I don't like the detail on the C14 center bolt section as it looks unfinished. The C140 cleans up this condition. Yes they will make a wheel but it is up to us to give them the backspace dimension and "develop" the wheel.
