Default So what's up with the 5x100 track wheels?

This is directed towards the motorsports peeps out there. I've been trying to lock down some 5x100 8.5-9 inch wheels in 17 but it seems like most of the motorsport wheels have moved to manufacturing those in only a 5x114 bolt pattern.

Are there any companies out there who make wheels in a 5x100 with a 48 offset (or so) that I can fit a 245 Direzza/Hoosire on? was hoping to find the TR Motorsports MT1's but those are gone... ugg.

I have the Work Emotion Kai in 17*9+44 5*100 on my 09 with 255 Toyo 888s. I'm not sure if you can still get those wheels or not though. Spun had a set they were trying to get rid of...

Rota makes those sizes. I was going to buy some 17x9 +42 5x100 DPT's before I found a group buy for 18x10 +30 SVN-R's.

No, but when I made my payment Dan (of Wheeldude) told me that he's sending out another order for them in (I think) Flat Black and Gunmetallic. You should PM or call him if your interested.

I dont know if I trust a Rota on the track. I know they have been track tested and all that crap - I just am super anal about wheels.

I was hoping to get something fairly light too... Rotas tend to be a little on the heavy side.

Maybe I'll settle for a 8 inch wide RPF1...

^ Thats what I was looking for, but wider. They're still too expensive in the bigger sizes for track use.

Exactly. Bull****! I was thinking 18x10s or 18x9.5 Rotas.... To fit a 300 series Hoosier.

Hoosier only makes a 295 and 315, no 305. I don't know if the 315 will fit, even with a widebody. Your wheel choices are really limited in 5x100 if you want something wider than 8" which is why most people end up with rotas.

Who's talking about 305s? I meant 300 series as in 3XX.



Isnt Mccanixx running 315s?

And I'm telling you the narrowest "300 series" tire that hoosier makes is a 315. I just did a search for mccanixx he has 285s. No way you're fitting anything wider than that without a widebody, I had to do a lot of fender work to fit 275 hoosiers on a stock body sti. Even with a widebody the widest most people are using is 295-305.

315's can be done. This guy has a 2006 WRX, 17x12's and Hoosier A6 315's:

Looks like he's ready for Monster Jam though!

Yeah that is in no way safe for track or pretty much any other use. You can get away with it in autox if you run stiff spring rates and a tall ride height but that won't even come close to passing tech for club racing.

Yeah - I guess ill have to settle with a 245 for now on an 8" wide wheel. Next year I'll do a 5x114 conversion and do something a little wider.

Totally not fit for a road course. I'm not sure how they'll heat up for autox either but it's cool that someone's trying it out. I'm pretty sure that later in the thread he mentioned doing some fender work and lowering a bit.

Sorry, when I saw mccanixx mentioned I incorrectly assumed this was for autox duty.

If you're willing to spend the money you could always do something custom from CCW, Forgeline, etc.

fyi the rota dpt in 17 and 18 x 9 are very light the dpt is the lightest wheel they make in 9 inch width. I run a set as many do for the exact reasons stated, no one else offers anything. bonus is they are dual drilled so you are not stuck with wheels you can't use if you do hub upgrade!! many track days without a problem. I have not seen or heard of a wheel failure on a single 9 inch wheel rota has made.

swapped my (04 sti's)5x100 to 114.3, wasnt too bad or much money as you would think, just have to sell everything off yours for near what you pay for the new stuff, took:

hubs
knuckles
rotors
wheels
axles
shocks

but yea, go see rota, they make super aggressive 5x100's

woops, just read your first post, responded to this by seeing only title, I had some buddyclubs too in +48, but the rota torques I would way rather go with in +48 which they come in

why you want such a wide rim for only 245's? an 8" would fit that, 8.5 prob be perfect width for 245, 9.5-10.5's being for like 265-285

+1 If they are good enough for the GST Motorsports GC, they are more than adequate for 99% of us on this board.

Sounds like a good plan, pretty much what I did last year. Plus I don't think anything wider than 8" would be right for a 245. I have a set of 17x8 5x100 RPF1's in silver. PM me if you're interested.

Like Boost Junkie said, CCW will make you a wheel in whatever size and offset you want, however it'll cost you a little more than an off the shelf solution. I have 2 sets of 17x10 CCW's that are dual drilled. I've been pretty happy with them.

Work, Drag, CCW, Forgeline, Kodiak, Rota.

There is often group buys for 5x100 wheels. There is a couple for some TE37s right now and some 18x9.5 Work 11R

Plenty of Drift Teams and Time Attack cars use Rotas anyways. No wheel is indestructible.
