Hubby's daily driver is a 2016 Focus ST. He wants a set of wheels and tires to put on when he goes to SCCA events and the road course near us. I know enough about wheels and tires to know there are too many options :)

I would like lightish, color isn't a big deal, sized so that tires are easy to find and replace, and a cost low enough to not send my relatively frugal husband into cardiac arrest.

Of course, I started with 18" on tirerack.com but then wasn't sure if that was even the best idea.

Any help is appreciated. if there is any consideration that I neglected please let me know. He retires from the military next month, I would like to get them for that event, maybe with a track day to follow.

Look into the TSW Nurburgring, it's decently priced for a rotary forged wheel (which means it's light). Also if you message these guys @Discount Tire they can help you.

I agree with, @elyk (thank you for the recommendation!)

The TSW Nurburgring is a solid choice that won't break the bank. This model utilizes rotary forged technology for greater strength and reduced weight over standard cast wheels. See the link below for current online pricing through Discount Tire Direct; right now you can save $75.00 instantly with the purchase of a new set!

When it comes to the tires, there is a great selection available in the O.E. sizing (see the link below). If this set-up will be used for the competitions only, it may be a good option to go with a max performance tire like the AD09R, or a dedicated competition tire. Shoot us a PM if you have any questions or if you'd like a personalized tire recommendation. I'll also point out that Discount Tire Direct mounts, balances, and ships all tire and wheel combinations at no additional charge :cool:

*EDIT*

I forgot to mention that the 18x8 Nurburgring weighs ~19 lbs.

Many members are going to 17" wheels for track use; a little savings on some wheels in 17" and better pricing and selection of tires. Track days will eat up tires quickly.
