Just got back from having wheels installed..
Man, talk about some big A arches lol. They swallowed these 18X8 wheels like a $2 dollar hooker. The only way to really make these work is to either go to a 20" version of them, or slam the heck out of the car. I'm going to take some quick pics with my iPhone, and then I have to head to a meeting. When I come back, I will post said photos. Just be gentle with me guys as my birthday is Thursday, and I'm brittle.....

By the way this is a picture of the wheel when I first received it.

Please tell tire size and offset of wheels.
I've got my eye on a set of 18x8's too.

The size is 18X8 and the offset is +45, when I come home I will post as good as I can iPhone pictures. Who knows, maybe the car will have collapsed by then to close up some of that gap lol..

...such a tease...lets see them pretty skippers on!!

Tire size?
Stock suspension, i assume?

The 18x8 I'm looking at is +44, so I'm really interested in seeing the pics!

C'mon Benjamin, let's see some pics!!!!!

Andrew H 04-02-2013 03:53 PM

Those are nice looking wheels, I vote to lower it, I feel like 20s would be too much

Captain Ned 04-02-2013 04:08 PM

Heh, 20s. I guess you've never seen VT roads. Even the 17 steelies don't have enough sidewall for VT roads.

Ok so here we go and remember that these are iPhone phones on a durty black car gents lol.

I'm not sure how to do all three at once so I'm going to done at a time until I get it cleaned up and use my better camera.

The suspension is RCE springs, the tire size is 235/40/18 and the tires are Nitto Motivo. :)

Hey Ben, how do you like those Motivos? I was looking at them but ended up with Michelins. this a for sale thread? :eek::lol:

I'll take 'em!!!! :lol:

Well truth be told I only have 7 miles on them, so it makes it hard to judge. I'm ordering a set of oem 2013 wheels tomorrow and those will be my new winter wheels. These wheels come with two valve stems, and neither one is recommended to be used for my nib tpms. So now im riding around with the light on still. I'll use the tpms that I have on my oem wheels and put strictly snow tires on them.

As far as a for sale thread, I am selling my 17" Enkei/Hakka tire combo as a whole to fund my trunk build. Will post in the classifieds all pertinent info. :)

RailKill 04-02-2013 07:58 PM

7 miles!?!? Looks like you're 8 miles over your limit to put them up for sale;)

Seriously though, they were a good choice. Nice and clean look
