    Very nice work RogsR34UK, so Circuit de la Sarthe 2 (Unchicaned) is the one you have to wait the longest for, didn't notice that! I'm getting close to the 1000 days make now and nothing has happened since that 351st day (of course), maybe they could have spread it out a bit more, but I suppose if they had of done that you wouldn't have been able to practice the track?

    Lots of these wheels come from Race cars and Stock cars, You can now purchase the wheels from stock Hondas/Race hondas, 787B Mazda and The Carbon R etc... to put on your cars along with the Original available Rims from GT3!:tup:

    i suppose it's a shame there's on;y 32 'special' wheels but at least if you're looking for something in particular it'll show up fairly quickly.

    Ugh, 295 days for Sears Point with the short chute... being a NASCAR fan I was most eager to drive that with different vehicles... but I've never gotten to play a game with the carousel and that fortunately is open right away so I might just pop in there first.

    Bear in mind that the "Wheel of the Day" section contains more than one wheel. I just checked three days and there were 15 there. So, 32 days by 15 wheels is a fair selection. I just spotted the E-Type wire wheel was available. Must go off and find a car for it!!! Of course, I bought a Jag S-type R for it and of course the day count advanced. I'll have to buy it next time... argh!!

    Another thing about the wheels is that you do not eventually buy all of them like GT3. You buy a wheel for a particular type of tyre (road, slick, dirt or snow) and it will only apply to that (unless you buy more than one of course). You can also buy the same wheel over and over again for the same tyre. It doesn't bother to check to see whether you have already bought it.

    I suppose that was a useful afternoon's work yesterday, what with the tracks and the "Wheel of the day" "discoveries". Glad to be of service!

    Yea, I kinda miss that option in GT3, Once you buy a rim you owned it for all your cars, you didn't have to keep paying for the same rim, Oh well, It still rocks!:tup:

    There are five selections in the wheel shop. One for Road Tyre (Normal and Sports), one for Slicks, one for Snow and one for Dirt. Finally there is the Wheel of the day section. To have the same alloy wheel on all types of tyres for a car you will have to buy it four times if the car is to use with them all.

    So If I buy a the same wheel with all three sets of tires, can I put the wheel on any car? or Must I buy a different set of rims for each car?

    (((((((((GOOD QUESTION)))))))))

    So far you have to buy Four sets for each car, That sucks!!! Unless there's something in the Japanese Languarge that says different! We can't understand all the features as of yet, So as for now you have to make all those purchases, We will know for sure by the 23RD of this month! :tup:

    Of course, the "Wheel of The Day" is in with the wheel manufacturers. The first screen when you select a wheel gives you the option of where to fit it (shoul dhave checked before the last post I made). You will need to by the wheel four times if the car uses all types of tyres. You will also need to buy up to four sets of wheels for each car that you want to change the wheels on. More realistic I suppose. In real life if your car had two sets of tyres and you wanted the same type of wheel on both you would need to buy two sets of wheels.

    My S-Type now has those nice wire wheels. I will maybe post a picture on my web site soon.

    At least PD had the Nurburgring available from the start. They knew that was the track that was going to get driven the most as it was the one that is the most difficult to learn.

    so you unlock courses just by playing the game? the longer u play whether you stink or not you'll get more tracks?
