    I'm looking around for a UK supply of 305/35/18 track day tyres to fit an 18x11 rim (GT4 wheel size) but am not having much luck.

    Cup 2 & R888R options are available for 305/30/19's but ideally wanted to stick with the 18" rim.

    Any suggestions on the 18" tyre or should I just go with a 19" rim instead?

    Could you run a 295/35/18 instead? More choice available in that size. The Audi R8 1:1 team are selling off their excess stock of Yokohama A050’s in that size.

    Am curious, why overkill on tyre size, thought 265 to 285 would be the norm.

    295 AR-1’s if they’re going on an e92.
