I am looking to see what these wheels are worth in the used market place. I have 2 sets of lightly used Pro Race 2 wheels. When I say used, 1 set has never been run and just had rains mounted, they other have literaly 5 heat cycles. Sold with out tires. One set is Anthracite color and other set is silver. Your input would be appreciated.

To be honest, I was hoping to possibly trade 8 Team Dynamics for 8 Kosei K1 wheels. Any interest in that????

I don't have any Kosei K1s.

I did bend one of my Team Dynamics and was ready to buy a brand new one plus another full set. Let me know. Do you know the offset of your rims?

I do not know the offset, I believe they are the 30mm but will have to look at the paperwork/ or the wheels. I would not be looking to sell until mid april. I will let you all know what offset they are when I look at them tonight.

Why? Do the K1s bend alot easier? Two of mine were bend around the hub area enough that I replaced them this winter.

Nic:
I've had both sets of wheels, Pro2's & Kosei's, and, if you are just starting out and money is tight, here is what I found out.
1- They are both good. The have reasonable weight and offset and will neither one make you faster or slower than the other.
2- They both are strong enough for racing and only bend/break if you contact someone or something. How hard the hit is will determine how the wheel holds up, but then that applies to the whole car.
3- I like the Anthracite wheels because they are the same color as brake dust but since there are no style points in SM racing how a car looks is purely a personal thing.
If you decide to keep the wheels, probably your most cost efficient thing, put your rain tires on the silver wheels, yes you will need rains this year and you don't generate much brake dust in the rain, and your dry tires on the anthracite wheels.
I hope that this helps with your decision. If I can help you can PM me.

Good Win Racing has TD's on sale. I got a set of TD 1.3 for $99 a wheel. We're still waiting on the Kuhmo XS's however. Most were cleared out in the fall and they haven't ramped up production yet for NA.

Brian of Good Win says it is which factory they are cast. The 1.2, 1.3 only signifies which factory they are cast in.

Nic:
It hasn't been to well publishized but there is an Annual Tech day at Advanced Autosports in Beloit on Saturday April 3rd.
Both the Council and SCCA Tech people will be there so that you can get a one stop annual on your car.
If you are first going to the schools the tech would be for the schools, the school tech is as much for the driver as the car, but it will be for your car for the first, and all 2010, races.
Plus it will give you a chance to find any tech problems with your car before the first outing.

Willie, No. But you could probably dig around on the internet and get an answer. Or you could email Team Dynamics directly.

I believe that the 1.2s are made in England, the 1.3s in China. May be of import for those of us wishing to maximize style points. [Smile]

Hmm, very good information Ray. Thanks. I may change my order. The 1.2's are slightly more expensive, but may be worth it.

Where did you get that information?

I thought that I had seen in on the Saferacer site, but don't see it there now. The info is available on the 5X Racing site, search for TD 1.2s.

People wanted a less expensive wheel and China's labor rate is less. For TD to compete with the other economical wheels (that are probably made in China)they contracted a company to make them.
The 25mm 1.2 were made in China for a short time but the manufacturer had financial trouble and TD pulled their molds. They are now made in England again.
I have Pro Race 2 and Pro Race 1.2 in stock and more on the way.

Just got an email from the Marketing guy at TD. He says right now "95%" of their Pro Race range is made in West Midlands, UK. Soon to be 100%.

From that I take that right now some wheels are made in China, but they are moving production to the UK. I figure just a better pride of workmanship with the 'Brits. Sure they cost a bit more, but in this endeavor, it's worth it.

If this matters to you then this is a question to ask when buying TD wheels. At least in the short term.

After all this, I changed my order from the 1.3's to the 1.2's.

***

Oh, and I guess we did hijack this thread. I hope the guy who started this thread got his wheels sold.

I didn't sell the wheels and it was not my intention to do so yet. I was just looking to get a Fair Market Value on the wheels if I did make the decision to sell and go a different direction. From what ive concluded is that if I did indeed put them for sale...it wouldnt take too long.
Thanks for your help...And I look forward to meeting many of you this race season.

Your safe wheels don't have oil in them that needs to be sealed and there's no electrical components.

I am glad I am safe with my TD pro race 2 wheels. I see 949 came out with a re-prod of there wheel, but coming in at only 11ish lbs.... whats up with that... if they came it at 13lbs, I'll be purchasing 3 sets.

Look for new wheels from 949racing this summer. Very inexpensive and probably a 13lb 15x7.
