What vendor stocks Team Dynamic

I've searched through most of the vendors websites looking for these wheels and have not been able to find anything. I did find a website that stocks them for pretty cheap with free shipping ( http://www.outmotoring.com/mini-coop...-pro-race.html) but I'd like to support a vendor.

I would want 17X8, A decently aggressive offset but nothing crazy (these will be for track/autox/daily) and either Anthracite or black color (not sure anything else would look good on the hot lava)

Some pictures of the wheels.




Just to be clear I know I can get lighter RPF1s for a similar price, but this these things can take a beating and that is important to me.


Thanks all

Damn, I can't remember the name. One of the first vendors here has these. But I don't know if he has official status now so the original thread may be locked.

I had these on my mini. I loved the wheels, but I also cracked 3 spokes on one wheel. I ended up buying another wheel, and tracked the car numerous times after that. If I hadn't cracked the spokes on that wheel, I'd look at these wheels for my FR-S. Unfortunately, I'm not quite sure how much of a "beating" they can really take. Still love the wheel though...

You would be the first person I've heard of damaging one. I've been reading lots of "well my car is trashed but the wheels are okay" stories about them. Hmm I'll have to do a little more reading.

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVED the wheels. I bought my wheels through Randy Webb (not sure how much you were into the mini scene). I still might even have pictures of the cracks. I was on the freeway and noticed a vibration noise coming from the rear tire/wheel. Looked back, and noticed my wheel was wobbling...completely lop-sided.

Maybe I just got a bad wheel, because this one cracked before I took it to my first track event. Once I replaced it, I tracked my mini with these wheels every month without any issue.

Never was in the min scene, great cars just never got into them personally. If you can find them that would be great, I am curious to see them.

It was several years ago, so I'll see if I can still find them. I found pix of my mini at the track with them, and also found the email I sent to Webb Motorsports after it cracked...but haven't found the pictures yet. I'll keep looking...

No big deal if you can't. Did they warranty the wheel or did you have toout of pocket it?

If a forum vendor can't help you, give Team Illuminata Motorsport a call. They sell Team Dynamics and BRAID wheels.

As for strength, TD wheels are solid when used for the application. I've seen them break, but it was a car using lightweight Pro Race wheels that had an unknown history to compete in RallyX. Completely wrong wheel for the sport. I use the TD Pro Rally wheels and they have taken unbelievable amounts of abuse with no issues.

I have a set of these on the way. TD produces wheels for WTCC, BTCC and several other FIA road racing series/teams. They produce an extremely high quality cast wheel.

I was playing with the "see on my car" option on Tirerack, they look good with the Hot Lava, and probably would be a little different.

Where did you get them and if you don't mind me asking how much and what size? I knew about the BTCC but was unaware of the rest of the FIA classes.

I almost forgot about them, they were a sponsor on dirtyimpreza. I may give them a call today and see what they can do. thanks!
