Hey guys,

I am looking to go from 19" TSW wheels to a set of 18" wheels. I found several on eBay but want to make sure they are a worthy investment. I found a set of BSA 215s that are 18x11 in the rear and 18x8 in front. I intend to use these as my road/track days wheels for my 2001 C4. Is there a better size for this particular car, or is this appropriate? Also, anyone know anything (good or bad) about BSA wheels? Thanks.

I checked their web site. Though they have a 'race' wheel section, it just appears to be a product line name, not a true application category. Most of their stuff looks kind of 'blingy', not like serious performance folks, more like serious 'pimp your ride' folks.

You should be looking for LIGHT, cheap (read: easily replaceable) and proven wheels for your track days - and I would even suggest looking more closely at 17" wheels for a few reasons - tires are cheaper and you're less likely to ruin a wheel in the event of a rough curbing event. There are plenty of good used (and attractively priced) Porsche OEM 17" and 18" wheels out there on eBay and Craigslist that would suit your needs - especially the hollow spoke wheels (though those are 18" 's). You can't get better than this for track days on a 996 unless you spend big $$$$ for true performance wheels.
