Madlock Posted November 25, 2010 Report Share Posted November 25, 2010 Forgive me if this has already been discussed elsewhere, but despite being a problem to which I'd been researching solutions without much success for some time, I've only come across this particular solution tonight and haven't yet seen it mentioned. I'd been looking for alternatives to the SVTPP wheels and tires due to the inordinate cost and wear of the SVTPP wheels and tires and their relatively narrow scope of use due to temperature limitations and their design that favors track use. Unfortunately, the F-1 G: 2's are the only tire combination meant to fit the staggered 20/19 SVTPP setup. I'd been considering the relatively attractive and fairly similar RTR 19" wheels with all-season tires for everyday use, but was never quite settled or satisfied with the outcome. I then visited the FRPP web site and looked at their performance upgrades for the baseline 2011 GT500 and saw wheels identical to the SVTPP style, only in 19 x 10 and 19 x 9 sizes with a sub-$500 SRP. Presuming sufficient offset and clearance, I'm thinking of simply replacing the 20 x 9.5 rear wheels with the 19 x 10 FRPP alternatives. The part numbers are M-1007-SA199 and M-1007-SA1910. Although they do vary from the factory wheel offset (51 and 40 F/R versus 45), I'm hoping to find a wider rear tire combination that will also help me to take fuller advantage of the GT500's handling - particularly after installing a Watts Link in the rear.
