My friend, with a bone stock GT-R, asked me what wheel/tire package to get for track use. After looking around a bit everything looks like a compramise. I figure this is a more focused forum that could point me in the right direction.
He probably will not want to have to roll fenders. I think he wants something he can just slap on.
If you were buying a new set of wheels for track use, would you run 20s? I think he cares more about grip than cost, it's just tire sizes are very limited in larger diameter wheels.

Wow, thanks for that link!
It doesn't look like nt01s or ra1s come in 305s anymore. So I think it's between 275 square nt01 and oem Dunlop 285 square. Leaning toward nt01.
NT-01 comes in 315/30/18. I used them on my C4 on 18 x 10.5 wheels. I don't think NT-01 ever came in 305. A set of 4 of the 315s is about $1,200. But your friend has a GT-R, so he has money to burn.

The deposed former Sheriff of trackHQ . . .
2006 Porsche 997 Carerra Coupe 6-MT - daily driver
1992 Honda (Acura) NSX 5-MT - classic investment I couldn't resist and occasionally drive
2004 Honda S2000 AP2 6-MT - track day car
2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX MR 6-MT - when I need a backseat, 4-doors, or a real trunk, and still want to haul ass . . .
The outer diameter for the 315s are too small. Needs to be 25.5" or more to keep the computer controls happy. At least that's what I've heard.
I assume these guys don't use the traction control. My friend does. Otherwise 315s would be awesome.
