Team Dynamics contacted me and the new Pro Race 1.4 forged wheel is available in Silver (pictured) and flat black. I can get them for $1750 plus shipping. Sizes are 16 x 7 & 17 x 8, weights 11.8 and 16.5 lbs respectively.

Contact me privately if interested, thanks

Sounds nice.

I'm sure everyone would like to know offset and if these are machined hubcentric for the elise/exige?

I've been happy with my 1.2's, but those are lighter!

thanks

hubcentric and offset is 31 mm front and 38 mm rear. This is an elise-specific fitment and TD makes the factory wheels.

There isn't a 15/16 combination in the 1.4. I do have a source for a 15 x 7 and 15 x 8 setup by another manufacturer for my track car. Photos should be posted on my track car thread later this weekend

Sorry, just updating what TD offers here. I do have a set of SSRs that I may keep for my personal car - they happen to be orange right now but are otherwise fine. I will probably refinish them for my car but if someone wants them for a reasonable price I might let them go.

The TD wheels are what they are - good wheels and immediate availability in the 2 colors lilsted.

Keith,

Can you get the fronts in 15x7? I like the 15/17 stagger of my TD wheels I have now...

Thanks,

Phil

I can get the 15 x 7 only in the PR1.2 - that is a perfectly good setup to go 15 & 17; I have run it myself. I will be running 15 15

15's and 17's? What you doing Phil? Tractor pulls? :D
hehehe, no but you should give it a try... Given the 60/40 weight distribution, I think the 17" wheel in back makes some sense with a 15 in front... Most cars are closer to a 50/50 weight distribution and have a 0 to 1" stagger... a 2" stagger all of a sudden doesn't seem too far off... The car handles wonderfully and is very neutral with the setup as well. THe only downside I can see is the weight of the 17's....

I can get the 15 x 7 only in the PR1.2 - that is a perfectly good setup to go 15 & 17; I have run it myself. I will be running 15 15
I have a couple sets of the 1.2s. I need a lighter weight rear wheel in particular... I think my 1.2, 17" rears weigh a good 20lbs (that's unconfirmed). Do you know what the 1.2 rears weigh? The 1.2 15" fronts weight about 13 lbs, don't they?

the 1.2 fronts are 13 lb and change. The 1.4 17" rears could be combined with 1.2 fronts and see above for rear weight. I will probably be running different brand front and rear wheels on the track car.

did anyone pick these up, anyone have a set on their car. I had a set of Stella Corsa's on order but it's gonna be a LONG time and daddy needs new tires, and he's not gonna get them for the old wheels......

I like the 15 / 17 setup on paper.

Phil - what size tires do you use on the track with this combo?

Thanks -
