how do you transport your 'tracktires' to the track? (g37s coupe)

Looking for options other than just drive it multiple hours there and back, or trailer the whole thing.

two in the rear.. one in the passenger and one in the trunk...
depending on the tires... you may not want to drive it round trip in case of wet weather...
youll wear em fast too...

If you keep the back seat up, you can do three in the back (standing, side by side) and one in the trunk. Did that from San Francisco to LA... that was fun.

thanks, I'd appreciate the pictures. Right now, my interior is 'spotless', effectively nothing's ever been in the backseat. But I've reach the time to either 'track the crap' out of this car, or trade it in, and go buy a corvette.

Put each tire in a big clean garbage bag before transporting in car. That way your interior remains clean and tire smell free

Here you go, sorry for the wait. Tires are 265/40r18 on a 18x9.5 wheel. I have tire totes, so that helps keep the car cleanish. Three in the back and another in trunk. With room for other junk too! (Don't mind my **** in the trunk)

I'm curious which 18x9.5 wheels did you buy (where from/how much). --- Last year when I bought wheels, I jumped the gun, and bought wheels too small (width). -- so I'm trying to sell them (not much market for 18x8 wheels).

Enkei NT03+M, in 18x9.5 +27 offset. There's a lot that will fit, and currently have three sets of wheels in my garage lol.

The Enkei are around ~$360 a wheel (I paid that much, around $1,400 total after tax and shipping), but you can get them for less than that if you look hard enough. evasivemotorsports.com is a good place to find wheels that you might like, but I would suggest looking around since pricing varies a lot. I made the wrong choice by buying new, and would look on the used marketplace if you can.

I have looked around, but cannot find 'used for this'. I can find plenty of used for 'non track usage' and for people who bought 'bling-eye-candy worthy' wheels, but I cannot find used for 'track worthy quality'

I actually use the Facebook marketplace for wheels and tires, or local groups that do trading/used sales. Seems like people are far more active there - there's currently 3 sets of NT03Ms in my size on my local one. And like you said, since most of them are for bling, the worst kind of damage you'll find is curb rash and that doesn't harm the integrity of the wheel, assuming they didn't bend it. Most of them will be reps, but there are a few good ones if you look hard enough.

I'm also selling mine, but shipping is going to be cost prohibitive and it's best to find locally.

If you find anything online that you can link to me, I can help out. But I would try Facebook first.

bump in case anyone has Enkei NT03+M, in 18x9.5 +27 offset just lying around and wants to find a good home for them. --yah, I'm looking for a set, but I don't want to pay 'new retail prices'

I'm willing to let go of mine to you for cheap - the only problem is that I'm literally across the country and am unsure as to how much it would be to ship. The tires don't have much tread left on them and I was planning to unload them anyway after I was done with them.
