These look great. Tires are 245 in front and 305 rear. Can't wait to see if these are available aftermarket. I'm sure they will be accessible somehow, just not sure in what volume or at what price.

This would be a great setup on a roadgoing Emira, assuming they fit over the standard AP Racing 4-pots as opposed to the the Alcon setup on the GT4.

Is that tape on the seam?

At least we know there should be plenty of inset clearance on the rear end of the Emira based on this. Probably an 18"x12" with a high offset from the looks of it.

I'm liking the look of this wheel over the factory options. Recessed with a lip and slight concave. Couldn't find it in the Braid lineup so it might be a new model debut on the GT4. Want to see how it looks in other colors but forged Braids aren't cheap--2-4x the price of cast Braids per wheel.

Yeah, I’ll be looking for a set of cast track wheels in 18” once I get the Emira for track rubber. I’ll bend cast and forged wheels alike, they’re a consumable good. I’ll ask apex down the line if they’ll consider making anything that fits.
