How many track days do those RE-71R tires last you?

Yes, I don't have the exact timing info but the GT4 makes this a requirement and these will carry over to other models as well.

I have a partial answer for you, waiting for a few details first...

I am trying to find out if the following setup will clear the wheel arches and not rub ...

Front 255/35 R19 (RE-71R)
Wheel 19x9 ET 50 (Forgeline GS1R)

Rear 285/35 R19
Wheel 19x10.5 ET 35

Front wheel will poke out 13.4mm more than OEM
Rear wheel will poke out 12.0mm more than OEM
Both setups make the inner rim move away from the suspension strut.
Rear wheel will

Anyone had experience with a similar setup ?

The Apex 19" wheels are going to be available in Fall. They were going to release them with their new forged series (which I wasn't allowed to talk about when I made my previous post), however there have been some delays with that so flow formed 19" wheels will be released and forged will follow.

Let me know if you have any questions!

I have 19" OZ wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires for track use. Excellent wheel/tire combo. For me anything stickier would be wasted.

How is the shoulder wear on the front tires doing?
