Spent some quality time with the GT3 this weekend.
Running 19" wheels with 255/35-19 and 305/30-19 bridgestone RE71R tires.
New PB of 1:57.3 at Thunderhill over the top.
This setup works really well, IMO.

Thanks, man! I believe so. They aren't mine. Lol. A buddy is letting me borrow them. They are forgelines

Lol! Thanks! That would require a license and a race car first! I am starting to consider it. A lot of money and time commitment that I'm not quite ready for.

Not much time required Joe, focus on the "A lot of money" imagine the worst case and triple it.

I thought the only cost was gas and the entrance fee?

Joe, can you find out if those were 12x19 on the rear? I've got a set of 9x19, 12x19 Forgelines and that's a tire I'd like to try.
