1M track wheels

am looking for a new set of track wheels...

preferably 19s, but wouldn't mind 18s either.
width: 10" up front and 11" at the back.

any suggestions are welcome.

Apex. Cheap and light and available with proper offsets.

Probably the most popular track wheel right now.

+1 to Apex 18". Best value.

Don't bother with 19" as very limited tire size options

Apex is the logical choice unless you feel like spending more for fancier wheels.

They offer a handful of sizes, offsets and colors in two different styles for our cars. Some go staggered, many go square (18x10et25 is the popular square fitment for our cars but they require camber plates up front). I used a set of staggered apex for a season and while a vast improvement over stock, I made the switch to square. Have not had a chance to test them yet but I am excited to see the differences.

Do four 265 or 275 (18") wheels stack together on the rear seats?

It's tight, but I've placed two 265 and two 285s side-by-side upright on my rear seat.

It requires moving both the passenger and driver seat forward a bit.

The wheel brand you want is apex. The size you want is 18. Don't do 19's.

If you want, I have a set of 18 inch 9.5's and 10.5's I may want to sell.

yeah that might be helpful since you said " any suggestions "

Any other tidbits of info you want to share before you shoot down other options?

What are these for? Track? Autocross? SCCA autocross?... is that way you said 19s? If you want 19s for SCCA autocross then I would go with the setup that Matt has..

Four 285/35/18 Bridgestone R1s will fit on the rear seats as will the other sizes you mentioned. I leave the Seatback UP and lay the wheels FLAT not life saver candy roll style. Mine are in tire sleeves which helps getting them snugged in. I usually place the tire on the driver's side first... as usually whichever is placed in second ends a little further forward, and I want to give the extra room to me as the driver. Start with one, then the other on the BOTTOM stack before going two high.

I have done this as well, but put 2 wheels perpendicular on the passenger side and 2 parallel with the rear seat behind the driver side and I don't have to move the driver side forward.

No rear seats now though

Please post your impressions when you end up running the square setup...
