Un-official Arkym J12 Thread

Mine will show up next week
19x9.5's and 19x11's

Pictures will come up as soon as I get them and mounted up!

I'll be competing with them at the One Lap of America competition beginning of May!

Anyone else have them yet?

Why would you use 19's over 18's?

This is a picture thread so I won't even answer that. Besides J12's aren't offered in 18.

Someone's posted pictures of the J12 on an R8!

No one's disputing they look great, but you're going to be using R-compound for OLoA right? That's why I ask.

They are not allowed to use r-comps during the OLoA. I also believe the treadwear rating has to be at least 200 which excludes the use of extreme performance tires as well.

Thanks. That explains a lot. I don't know if I'd want to go 200mph on street tires though!!!

They look AWESOME on the R8. I think the M3 fitment will have more concavity

Yes street tires only... I think 140 treadwear is the lowest. I'll be running PSS which should be ok up to 200mph

Actually PSS's have "race compound" on the outer shoulders!

Damn, only car i'd really want over my M3 is R8. I don't even need the V10. I can't be alone, because they hold their value pretty damn good.
