Those look perfect! They look like they could be a production wheel for the car.

I too was very interested in these wheels until I did some indepth research and learned they are 23lbs in 18x8.

I am trying to balance price, looks with performance which is difficult to do especially for the 5x100. Right now I am still sold on the Enkei rpf1 18x8 5x100 wheels at <18lbs each.

23lbs is pretty standard for 18x8 wheels. If you want them to look like they do in the photoshopped pics, you will need an offset something like 30-35 with the 8" rim to have them that flush.

Unfortunately^^^^^

I plan on taking a trip to Tire Rack in Indiana to see them in person.
I'd love to have those in 18x9 et40.

I though 18x8 et48 is like adding 5mm spacers to the stock wheels. And to be hones, I think the stock offset isn't that bad either. That will change with a drop tho...

23 lbs for 18x8 is not bad at all. The new STI Base wheels are 24 lbs for 18x8.5 and BBS are 21.

Those look really good. I'd almost want to do 19's in them since that's what the photoshop looks like it resembles moreso than 18.

the new prodrive look-alikes are 24lbs? not only do they look FAR better than those 5-spoke boat anchors, they're lighter too!

I have been eyeing the too... On the fence with 17 or 18 as well. My suspension is stock except for Tein springs that gave me about an inch all around of drop. Hmm... they look great. I say get them!

I'm still trying to figure out the perfect offset for the 2011 wide body. By perfect i mean a nice compromise between wheel wight and offset which doesn't require any fender and camber work.

My BMW has a slightly less aggressive camber and I'm just about done with changing tires when they have much more to go.


From my research, the perfect fit would be 18x9.5 et40 wrapped in 255/35 -18
Also, 18x8.5 et35
Let me know if I'm wrong!
