Apex 18 Satin Black with NT-01s

Some pics of the Apex 18/10 wrapped in NT-01s on my car. Great look for the track.

Will test these on the track shortly.

No spacer and on stock suspension, right? Looks just right.

Are these an R compound tire?
What size are they?

Those look AWESOME!

Those R comps wear out fast so I take it you don't drive to the track with them and switch them when there?

What's the weight of those?

I'm frickin itching to get my TE37 SL's with NT05's ! The wait is driving me insane...

I believe the weight is ~ 19lbs per wheel.

The NT-01s actually wore very well and with a mid cycle tire flip, you can get several sessions. I'm running the tires now to put a few hundred miles on them before track day (although the NT-01s don't need it). I typically don't drive the R compounds to the track just in case it rains, otherwise the wear isn't bad on the NT-01s, other R compounds are a different story.
