Lightweight, Track-Proven Wheels

Saturday, July 10, 2010 by Jim Holloman
So you’ll be doing some autocrossing or track days and you’re looking for some lightweight wheels for your BMW 3 Series or Mazda.

Take a look at the Kosei K1 Racing or the Enkei RPF1. Both of these wheels will reduce unsprung weight and make your car stop faster and accelerate quicker. Both are goals of every track and autocross racer.

Next Generation Motorsports is just one of numerous teams running the K1 Racing wheel from Tire Rack. The BMW 330i (shown here) looks really good with the orange and white paint scheme but is also a true race car. With a wheel that can hold up to track abuse of Pro Racing you know it is going to hold up to whatever comes your way on the street.
 
Match them with some R compound tires from BFGoodrich or Hoosier and you are ready to go. If you are not quite ready for the R compounds, a set of Bridgestone Potenza RE-11 tires will do the trick for track and street.
