    Default Think I'm ready to change wheels, opinions welcome

    Hey all.
    been a min, Sooo. I'm wanting to get my traction issue more under control, and I figure the best way is to get more rubber on the ground. Currently rolling on MRR GT-7 wheels. 18x8.5 +35MM on all four. 245/45/18 Nitto 555G2'
    Changed a good bit on the car since we last spoke back in 2018 when I first bought it.
    Quick Mod List:
    Intake, 1 3/4 Headers, 2 1/2 Magnaflow Exhaust, 3.45 gears, ZL1/CTS-V converter, Double stacked Trans Cooler, H&R Coilovers, Cross Drilled/Slotted Rotors, BTR Stage Cam, LS7 Lifters, Front Bumper Splitter, GXP rear diffuser. Car has just over 21k on it now. etc.

    I'll toss up a few pics of the car

    Anyway, MRR doesn't make this wheel in a 9.5 with a good enough offset to run a 275/40/18 or 285/40/18 with rolling/cutting the fenders. I've been in contact with them and they claim they have the GT-7 wheel in a 18x9.5 in a +40mm offset, but they are blank, and their machine has been down, and there's only 5 left, cause they are to be discontinued....blah, blah, blah.

    Anyway, looking for ideas and different wheel set up on any & all Black G8's on here. I've been peeping the Apex ARC-8 in Hyper Black, & the EC-7's in Hyper Silver (good wheel weights and has the right offsets to run a 275 drag radial).
    Google has the same pics and I'm over them for the most part. Curious what you are running or recommending. Thanks in advance.
