600LT Track Only Wheel Suggestions

Hey everyone - was wondering if there were any suggestions for track only wheels for the 600. I really don't care how they look, i just want something to mount the Trafeo Rs to for 100% track day use. I will be keeping another set of (more reasonable) tires mounted to the factory wheels.

Preferably under $5K for the set.

Thanks.

Do we know how much a second set of the OEMs cost?

Check out Finspeed. https://www.mclarenlife.com/forums/f...pril-15th.html

As for OEM costs, I asked my dealer once and they were around $2K each if I remember correctly. My 570 had the optional lightweight wheel and the Finspeeds I have are lighter still AND they are one inch wider in both the front and rear.

Thanks!

Can personally vouch for Finspeed as a company. Have zero knowledge on best 600LT offering, sizing, and weight comparison with OEM.

With the $300 off promo we are running currently, our entry level F14 "track pack" wheel is going to come in right around $5k. It features thin but very deep spokes that are inherently strong, but look fantastic.


All of our wheels are engineered for your specific application, and are simply not our spoke pattern "fit and modified" to fit your vehicle. Our FEA simulation (using ANSYS) and physical certification is done using racing slicks, not street tires. Let us know if we can help.

I had a quote for about $7K for the wheels from the 570s with my own tires mounted/balanced.

Let us all know what they spec out with you w/r/t the 600LT. Would be good to get a "standard" application we can easily order. It looks like some of their 10-spoke wheels might retain the OEM look. Question is weight and sizing, and esp what tire options there are/aren't at various size options.

I can't quite yet speak from experience about track applications but I can say that the team at Finspeed is very professional. Looking forward to the arrival of my set as I have just received my new 600LT. Take a look on their site, it's really easy to navigate and quite informative as well. Here's my order to give you an idea of the services they're capable of providing:

Which are you running on track? The Cup 2 or Trofeo R?

Also it looks like they gave you a little more meat on the tires (245 325) do we know that this doesn't affect any of the computers (e.g., TC/SC/etc)?

Width will not affect any computer routines. Only height, overall diameter, and differential between front and rear diameters.

Can't tell you how the extra width will effect the car yet as I haven't received the wheels and tires. However, the team at Finspeed is quite knowledgeable and worked with me to create a setup that will remain neutral and adjustable on track. Wheels are pounds lighter while being wider than stock superlights. Will report back after my track session at the end of the month.

I'm going through the process of ordering a set of the F14. Kurt has been absolutely awesome to deal with. Looking forward to seeing these on my 600!

Thanks, Finspeed.

This isn't so much for track setups but a good conversation for us to have since this car is new and many of us will be adding different wheels and tires:

Another 600lt owner (see PUR wheels website) has PSC2's on 235/35/19 and 305/30/20 and the fronts RUB on the front plastic duct liner (specific to the 600lt). Not bad but enough to see and hear it. No offset helped this either, so I don't think we can get a 245 to fit and not rub on this car....?

I'm curious why Finspeed for example doesn't do a wider rear either? OEM is 11" wide with a 285, so going to a 325 really would necessitate a wider rim. I would assume the car can fit another .5-1.0" wider in the back?

I have a set of PUR forged wheels I'm considering in 19x8.5 and 20x11 with PSC2 235/35 and 305/30, per the customer above, but I'm still trying to decipher what the best size/setup is... and I think adding .5" to the rear is a good option. When you examine the section width below, you'll see what I mean.

Front Trofeo 225/35/19 9.1"
Front PSC2 235/35/19 9.5"

Rear Trofeo 285/35/20 11.4"
Rear PSC2 305/30/20 12.3"

The OEM Trofeo's fit pretty well on the OEM wheels. The front tires are pretty flush with the wheel lip. The rear has a little more rubber on it. So, adding a larger tire to the rear +20mm probably should necessitate a wider rim. Same for the front. Using a 235 should take a 8.5" width wheel. However, both PUR and Finspeed are still using 11's in the rear.

The other problem is some molds (one manufacturer to anther) are different in tread and/or section width so a PSC2 could be larger or smaller than say a Trofeo in the same exact size. I really wanted a 245/305 setup on the car so the front and rear are a +20mm but I think that 245 up front will work?
