track wheels

What wheels are guys running for autox/track? I've been using FD 16" wheels and cracked two of them this weekend. I'm gonna end up replacing two tires (rs3's currently) - not sure I want more FD's. Suggestions?

I am the Stig... Corksport SRI, Sure Torq R3, Sure BSD, JBR short shift plate, Eibach Pros, Koni yellows, Hotchkiss rear sway, EBC Yellow Stuff, Hankook Ventus RS-3 (track)

bump... Beuhler... anyone... I need to buy some wheels. I don't care what they look like, cost is an issue. Suggestions?

I've been told by miata drivers that rotas are cheap. I've got a set of Enkei wheels that aren't anything special, but weren't too expensive. Not a clue about sizes though.

The reinforced FD wheels are better for this application.

There are two types of FD wheels... one is lighter and more prone to cracking.

In the pic posted in that thread, the right side are the reinforced wheels.



Can't go wrong with a set of Enkeis... the RPF1s look great on the Mazda 3 and MANY people run them on the track.
