New wheels for the Z3

Post by Migou » Sat 09 Jan, 2016 01:37

Here is a pic with the new wheels. The wheels are 18x8.5 Apex Arc 8. Compared to the stock wheels, 16", there is a couple pounds difference. The ride is a bit stiffer but it's a sports car, not a luxury car.

Are they the same wheels as Robz3sport? Look really nice but many people say the larger the rim the greater the 'tram lining' problem. Great photo angle by the way :-)

It's all about tyre choice re the tramlining. I ran 18" 8.5s all round and had terrible tramlining problems, then switched from 235 to 225 on the front and hey presto, no more tramlining. Managed a fairly meaty 255 on the rear too and got some great traction.
