Default Show off your TSW Nurburgrings

Hey everybody, decided to make a thread dedicated specifically to the TSW Nurburgrings. For everybody that posts, please also include the wheel size & width along with tire size & width. I went with the 20x8.5/9.5 setup with the fronts weighing 23 pounds and the rears weighing 24.7, which is pretty light when compared to other aftermarket wheels. Nitto Invos in the front 255/35/20 & rear 285/30/20.

I'm going to be at Cars and Coffee on Saturday. If you aren't going to that we could probably meet up some other time this weekend.

Going to attempt to find time on Friday to install my rear brembos, if that doesn't happen my car might be down Saturday afternoon to get those installed. Sway bars are probably going to have to wait another time Have had them for over a month haha.

Got mine on the car today, will post pictures tomorrow. I like them alot. It gives my car a completely different look from what the Camaro 20s did.

Also, with 255s on 20x8.5 in the front =52 pounds. 285s on 20x9.5 in the rear =55 pounds. The stock 19s I had on the car when I bought it weight 56 pounds with half worn Hankooks.

Very nice and light weight wheels, wish I would have gone with 20's though, they look much nicer.

Got some pics. Don't mind the dirty car. The wheels are also a bit dirty as I didn't have time to wash them either

I saw Jdiz's car in person today and the pics don't do justice. They look amazing. Contemplating a set in 18's for myself now.

Looking good Jdiz. Making me want those taillights you got. I rolled my fenders before I got the rims, just to be safe. I think with the offset the 20s have with the rear 9.5 you'd be fine. These are some quality wheels nd for the price nd weight man you can't beat em

My wheels are already rolled for my Camaro 20s. Honestly, I'm not sure if you'd have to roll them at stock height. I had 5 guys in the car today with these on, rolled, and lowered, and I was rubbing over medium dips/bumps. Granted, that's with at least 1k extra lbs.

I guess what I'm saying is that if you went with 285s, I'd roll just for safe measure. The rims sit less than 2 mm further under the lip than my Camaro 20s do in the rear. I rubbed with a 275 on those and I'm running a 285 on these.

Haha, glad you liked them. I'll do a set in 18s for myself as well if I end up tracking the car a decent amount. On the white, you could probably go with the Matte Gunmetal or the Machined Face Gunmetal and it would look great.

Thanks! Yeah, I love these taillights. After selling my old taillights off, these only ended up costing me like $50. I personally think these look really good without being ricey.

Front: 20x8.5, et 43, Michelin Pilot Super Sports 245/35/20, 46lbs ea.

Rear: 20x9.5, et 48, Michelin Pilot Super Sports 275/30/20, 52lbs ea.

OE 19s weighed in at 52lbs ea with Continental Extreme Contact DWs (lightly worn).

NO RUBBING (so far) AND LOWERED. Just put them on today. Ride so far is not nearly as harsh as I thought it would be. Count me satisfied.

Anyone have any pictures of the Nurburgrings on a gray G8 GT? I'm debating on either the machine finish or the gun metal. Also, what offset do you guys recommend for a staggered setup on 19's?

Looking good bro. What springs are you lowered on?
