I'd really like to know,if these are 8.75 +35. I have a black 08 and think these are so nice but wishing they made a 9.75 +35. Because the +20 looks way clowns to me.

the 9.75 +20 won't look so bad on your wider body GR.

If you look at the whole picture to front of the evo is destroyed. He hit a pole or someone hit him slamming into the rim. Im sure any rim would do this with enough force.

Hence, why I posted the link to the thread, the OP insists that no pot hole was hit and impact of the car was after the rims failure.

There are stories of this happening to Rota wheels as well.

Not sure why you guys came on here just to hate on the wheels... and of coarse the driver would blame it on the wheel... any wheel can be destroyed in a crash whether its worth a 100 or a 1000 a pop
