What are people running on the track?

I don't want to spend $1k per wheel. These will get beat up at the track and I don't care what they look like, I want light and strong. Ideally, I want 18s. Suggestions?

+1. After a track day this weekend I think my next yummies I want are new brake pads and wheels to track with. Pretty doesn't matter, they just need to be light and equipped with PSCs.

Great track wheel. I would get 18x9.5 personally.
D-Force also makes a nice 5 spoke for track use in 18x9.5. Another option is CCW wheels, especially if you want to run a BBK in the future.

Will 275/35s fit on these wheels?

If you want PSC+ the width will be 265/35, they don't come in 275. Of course you can get other stuff in 275.

Yeah I have some existing Hoosiers on my SSRs from my e46 that are 275/35. They are 18x8.5 et35. I was wondering if I could run those wheels on my e90, or worst case take the Hoosiers off and see if they would fit on the MT-1s.
