    I am looking for another set of 15" wheels that will fit the TSW BDM brake kit. Wheels that I know work are as follows:

    15x7 Team Dynamics Pro Race 1 +35et (Discontinued)
    15x7 Team Dynamics Pro Race 2 +35et (Discontinued)

    I just recently discovered that the Pro Race 2's are no longer being made. I have looked at the 949Racing 15x8's but they don't look like they are going to work. I also saw that OZ has UltraLeggera and the Kosei K1 and seems like I have also seen the Chrono. I am running 225/45/15 track tires so I don't really care whether the wheels are 15x7 or 15x8. Just trying to find something that fits.

    EDIT:

    Here are wheels that I know will not work:

    15x7 Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2 +38
    15x7 5Zigen FN01R-C
    15x8 949 6UL
    15x7 OZ Chrono HT +37
    15x7 OZ Ultraleggera MGS +37
    15x7 Motegi Racing SP10 +42

    15X8 may give you clearance troubles with your 2nd gen relatively straight rear trailing arms.

    Lacking any other responses from this, I ordered a couple single wheels from Tirerack to check fitment. These are the wheels that I ordered:

    15x7 OZ Chrono HT +37
    15x7 OZ Ultraleggera MGS +37
    15x7 Motegi Racing SP10 +42

    Keep us posted. The Pro Race 2's were the only other rim I'd heard besides the 1.0's that would fit; did TD replace them with something else that might fit?

    Not as far as I can tell. I've had a set of Pro Race 2's on order for about 3 months now from Good-win racing, and they finally came back to me and said that Team Dynamics was not making the wheels anymore. That might just mean the 15" variety, but to me it's all the same.

    Maybe give Aaron at outmotoring a shot? He got me the very last set of TD 1.0's he could find, sitting in a wharehouse. If the 2.0's recently went out of production, he might be able to work his magic again....

    I spoke with Aaron and he communicates with the same person at RimStock that Good-Win racing does. I have inquired to make sure TD doesn't have a new wheel to replace the Pro Race 2's.

    I'm sure it's poor form to quote myself, but here it is anyway. None of these wheels fit. Got them today and tested fitment, they are all too small in inside diameter to clear the brake caliper.

    On a brighter note for me, after numerous calls between Good-Win and Rimstock, they rummaged through their miscellaneous wheels and had a set of black 15x7 ProRace 2's in 35 offset! Exactly what I was looking for.

    Hopefully Team Dynamics will have a greater demand for the Pro Race 2's and will return to making them.

    I am not buying your cast-off wheels this time.;)

    Awesome deal though that you found the Pro Race 2 in 35. :Thumbsup:

    These I have never mounted tires on, so I will be shipping them back.
