One of the things that came to mind was to get onto some ZZR tyres for extra grip on track days... I'd spoken to some of my friends who have tried the ZZR's and after taking their advice, I'm considering staying with the CR500's for the road and having a spare set of wheels with ZZR's fitted for track day use... I don't have a trailer (or a car where I can fit a tow-bar to either) so I need to be able to drive my car to track days, so the rubber needs to be road legal!
So... onto what wheels to get... As I've got 13" wheels, and want to stick with the smaller wheel size, the only real options to consider are:-
- The New Caterham Apollo wheels
- A set of Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2's
- or another set of the Caterham Superlight 8 spoke wheels that I already have.
I'm thinking as they're only going to be for occasional use, I may add a bit of colour to them to make them stand out a bit more, so I'm reaching out to the readers of my blog with a poll to see what the general consensus of what wheel colour I should go for... Here are the options:-
Option 1 - Standard Anthracite
|Option 1 - Standard Anthracite 8 spoke wheels|
(they should look more like the colour of the inset OZ racing wheels)
|Option 2 - Gloss Orange Wheels|
|Option 3 - Matt black spokes with orange rim and white tyrewall wording|
Using the poll below, simply click the radio button of the wheel colour option you like most, and click the 'Vote' button...
Although I know which option I like best, I'm really keen to see what the general consensus is! And any other comments/ideas are welcome too!
