Not sure right now.

Default Sorry for the new thread, Enkei RF-1 16x7 +38mm offset

Hello, don't frequent this section much, as this is my first custom wheel tire combo I am going for.

I cannot for the life of me find much information other than what is displayed in the title bar on these rims. I picked them up, test fitted, looked great.

Now I am trying to figure out what kind of tires will work with it.

I am looking for Kumho Ecsta ASX, from Tire Rack.

Now, I have a set of Eibach pro lowering springs on 99 RS struts, going into a 96 Impreza coupe. I don't want to go low profile, hence the 16" size.

I am looking for the largest size tire I can get.

Anybody have any ideas?

Thank you in advance!

wrong offset
they will likely rub unless you pull/roll/use a good bit of neg camber

find some 16x7 rs wheels and put something 215/45's like hankook rs-2 on them

while not the best offset for the car the proper tire size for a 1996 Coupe would be 205/50-16
