There have been a ton of threads in the past on RPF1's Do a quick search and you'll find everything you want to know in great detail complete with pics.

I was almost ready to buy these... nice wheels at a good price. They're not hubcentric, which was the dealbreaker for me (though lots of people don't care, and you can/should get hubcentric rings for them).

I have the RPF1 in 17x8. I specifically got the 35mm offset to help fit the 275 Hoosiers I run on them. Mine came with hubcentric rings that were/are quite snug fitting, so I have not worried about the wheels not seating properly. Here are a couple pics:




...sorry for the large pics...

I was thinking about 18''s. I think that they look better. I saw a white sti with gold RPF1'a and it looks awsome. I have a wrb sti and i think that silver will look better, mybe i will endup powdercoating them. Anyway what the $#@! is hubcentric???

I've been super happy with mine (17x7.5 though). Can't tell you about strength inasmuch as I've not beat them up or hit any large pot-holes... but, bang-for-buck, they're awesome wheels.

I got mine at : http://www.raceperformanceparts.com/...roducts_id=629
Nice folks, shipped promptly.

Good luck!

How are you fitting 275's? I had to roll my rear fenders to fit 245/45 Azenis Sports (on 17x8 +45 RPF1's, which I am very happy with).

I was thinking to get the RPF 1 too. But the lip of the rim is too big and make the rim looks like a 15 rather than a 17. Therefore, i switch my mind to the 18 RS-V. I am a "bling bling" kind of person. Now, i am deciding what size of tire should i use.
