Default Track Wheel/Tire Setup

Decided to pick up some D-Force 18x10's for some DE sessions this year and am still debating on tire selection... Specifically size.. Can a 285 fit on the front and rear? I do have 12mm/15mm spacers available.

Also, what are some of the setups others are running?

I have only seen one or two ppl run a 285 up front and I think its as using a RS-3 tire.
I personally run 275 front and 285 combo.

You are going to have to add some camber up front as well.

I wasn't sure if the 285 would be too much but figured that would be the case... So I guess 275/35 is the deal... Hankook R-S3? Was also looking at that as the go to tire considering it's street/track application.. I have been hearing good things..

Are you getting insurance for weekend DE's? I have tracked before but still feel like the added protection is necessary.

Anyone else with input?

I think Turner and the others in the know are suggesting u run a 275-35-18 front and rear for the track.

I've seen 18x11 squared setup but still on a 275/35 tire. I think 285/35 is too tall and a 30 is too short, so the 275/35 is ideal for the front.

Alex as you know I run 275/35 and 285/35 on my street 18's. I rub a bit on the front with tight turns. I have 265/35s and 285/35s on my track setup.

Both of these sets are RS3's. Great tire BTW.

And yes I get insurance. Just nice knowing you have it for peace of mind if someone screws up in front of you. I don't worry as much about myself, but you can't control the guy in front of you, in the first session of the day with cold tires.

Yes sir yes sir.. I may follow suit and run the staggered setup like you did in order to get a good feel for the car before going square (still 18x10 though)..

How much is your insurance costing per session? and who through?
