Picture of the 2018 “PP2” package wheels

Found this picture of the mysterious “PP2” wheels on Instagram. Hard to tell but those look like Michelin Sport Cup 2 tires to me....

Is it just me, or do they look very small?

Judging by how close the caliper looks to the barrel of the wheel they are probably 19’s

Hard to tell, but don't the brakes look like the standard PP Brembos[?] At least the rotors hats don't look different, was thinking maybe some kind of GT350 sourced update for the PP2.

It's going to be interesting to see what the difference is between the '18 PP1 and PP2. It's Coupe and manual only, so that makes me think it's really attenuated to a tracked car. So I'd assume that would target: suspension, brakes, and possibly even the tranny - thinking manual only could mean a TR6060.

A TR6060 would handle the output from a Power Pack 3 ...

Any ideas on the PP2 cost yet? That would also help to understand the upgrade path.

I’ve always liked the wide split 5 spoke design they have. I’ll be anxious to see the sizes and how good of offsets they have.

Or a T56? Either would be nice

I like the gunmetal look. They look like the old FR 500 wheels.

I like that styling, looks very similar to some aftermarket ones I been eyeing up.

I think-19.5 front and 19x10 rears. I think the offsets are the same as the regular PP cars, 45 front,52.5 rear

I was thinking the exact same thing. They'll probably be about 10 lbs heavier a piece, though.
