Bigger lip you say ?? about time I see an impreza with a big lip wheel . o.k My knowledge in wheel measurement isn't as good as my performance knowledge so please tell me :
If the 8" 40mm offset does get close to rubbing anywhere , where will that be ? for example on a GC8 impreza ? The reason I'm asking is I got very stiff suspension and camber plates and getting fender flares , and need to know what I can do to fit big wheel like that.

Do you have any pics of the six spoke on a wrx? What about the seven?

Is that a 40mm offset on that VW? Is there absolutely no rubbing whatsoever with this offset in a 8in. wide wheel?

How much does the powdercoating of the center add to the wheel cost?

You mention that they can be custom made to fit larger brake kits. Would the larger sizes (18..19) require any special accomodations to fit the stoptech kit or is there enough space?

Also, on your site, the 19" wheels are listed at 19 lbs, is this, in fact, the case? Or are they 23 as listed on the 1st post of this thread.

Too bad the RS5 isn't part of this, I wouldn't be thinking about it much. Out of curiosity, what is the weight on the RS5 in 17, 18 and 19" sizes?


Sorry for all the questions! I'm interested!

Will Rx, a 48mm with a 8 width will fit a wagon fine. We were going to see if a 40mm on a 8 would fit a wagon, but after furthur research, it would be cutting it too close

Are they certain that there is no rubbing with a 235 width tire using a 40 offset? What about 245? Is fender rolling or fender liner removal required?
Thanks!

It's been two days. Let me make this clear. I am buying these wheels. Please help with these questions I have 1900 in hand for them, k?

You might have better luck calling Vince:

949-735-8576

I can tell you that with a +40 offset, you will not rub UNLESS you are lowered. Then, you WILL RUB. There is no way I can see that you wouldn't, the tires are exteded right to the edge of the fenderwall with that offset. You would have to roll or cut your fender wall (although, I'm not even sure what is involved with that).

Default Woohoo my wheels are on their way!!

My wheels are on their way!! There are 18x 8 with +40offset.

I am getting H&R Coilovers too and so I will have the luxury of adjusting the height of the car to avoid rubbing.

When did you order them, and what style did you get?

Can't wait to see what ride height works the best, keep us updated!
