Wheels and Tires.

STaSIS Signature Series R8 wheels are a combination of strength and beauty. Forged with 300 tons of pressure from 6061 aluminum alloy, these wheels are extremely lightweight and strong. Measuring 20” x 9.5” in the front and 20” x 12” in the rear, STaSIS forged wheels are 27% lighter than cast wheels of the same size, and improve acceleration, stopping and handling.

The wheels are shod in Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires, measuring 255/30/ 20 in front and 325/25/20 in the rear. Originally designed for some of the world’s most exotic sports cars, these tires work in concert with the suspension and drive train to deliver over 1.0 G in skid-pad testing.

Braking.
STaSIS brakes use lightweight, 2-piece 390-mm rotors in the front and 355-mm rotors in the rear. Designed specifically for racing, these lightweight rotors have large air gaps, custom iron alloy and directional aerofoils that help to quickly extract the heat generated when stopping. Coupled to an aluminum hat via a floating pin design, these rotors are able to stop corner after corner without overheating or deforming due to heat stress.
