Wheels and Tires

The wheels are Forgestar CF5V:

  • Front: 19" x 9.5/10"

  • Rear: 19" x 12"

The lug nuts that came with the wheels are closed and powder coated black. I'm going to replace them with open titanium nuts. Likely these:

  • [20] KAT-6882; Titanium Lug Nut, 12pt M12-1.5 ($6.99 each; need 20)

I need to figure out how long the studs should be. The custom Hoosier hubs take press-in or screw-in (1/2"-20) studs.


Apparently some Forgestar wheels need hub-centric spacers… I need to figure out if I need to purchase some (Ken’s thread). OD: 72.56mm; ID: 70.3mm


I decided to buy inexpensive tires (just over $1k for all four) for the build. I'll upgrade to Michelin Pilot Sports once the car is built.
