Ok guys, I know a bunch of you use your F for more than just going to your high paying job. And take that beast out to road course every now and then. I am interested in seeing your track setup. What do you do to your F? Aftermarket wheels or stock? Aftermarket tires or stock? Which wheels? Which tires? What sizes? Any other mods? Cameras? Suspension? Brakes?
Give me the details and pics if you have them!!

Most performance mods need a watch and timed course to demonstrate actual improvement. Few deliver the advertised claims. Many are actually worse than stock. The best performance mods are made to the driver.
Emotional arguments - They're not just for chicks anymore.
18" and <18 lbs would be more interesting. Appearance is trivial as long as the wheels are light, strong, and fit over the brakes.
I agree. Although I won't being buying wheels for at least another 6 months, when I do I am seriously considering 18s. They have got to be around 3lbs per wheel lighter than 19s. The tires for an 18 inch wheel are actually a little lighter as well, even though they have more sidewall.
Does anybody know why this is? On tirerack.com I was looking up the tire specs on the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2s. It listed that 295/30R19s weigh 29lbs each and 295/35R18s weigh 27lbs each.
