Update on the new wheels:

18x10 +43 wrapped in 245/45R18s
A week so far and theyre still running well as a temporary fit until I can get 265/35R18s.

No rub, having camber issues with my alignment however. Didnt check the alignment before the new wheels, and its a camber issue, so nothing I could really do anyway stock.

Ordered whiteline camber bolts for the front. Switching the tires soon as I get the money, and Ill be getting either Cusco or Whiteline LCAs for the rest camber. If anyone has any recommendations on LCAs let me know!

Also, how I post my poorly taken pictures? Lol

Edit: Also, camber recommendations welcome! Ive been seeing somewhere around -1.5 degrees all around is a good place? Im looking for aggressive street/autoX performance with my setup.

/\ we can barely see those based on that angle.

On another note: has anyone gone to 17"s to try to save a bit of weight?

Any pics?

They look great.

Question: what is the minimum standard for bringing a new aftermarket wheel to the market?

Can anyone bring any wheel to the market without any minimal testing?

Off a very brief search . . . start here - https://www.sema.org/federal-regulat...ermarket-parts. The relevant excerpt is posted below. The four bullet points are links in the sema.org page but didn't come through as links here.

Wheels:
There are two NHTSA safety standards that reference wheels (rims), FMVSS No. 110 (tire selection/rims for passenger cars weighing less than 10,000 pounds) and FMVSS No. 120 (tire selection/rims for vehicles weighing more than 10,000 pounds). The rules are focused on making sure the vehicle has the proper size tire/wheel combination. They do not establish performance requirements, although FMVSS No. 120 includes marking requirements. Most wheel performance/marking requirements have been accomplished through industry standards established by SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) and other international organizations. SEMA worked with SAE to develop SAE J2530, “Aftermarket Wheels - Passenger Cars and Light Truck - Performance Requirements and Test Procedures” [Published: May 2008]. NOTE: SAE J2530 establishes performance and marking requirements.
• View complete SAE Standards for tires/wheels
• TPMS guide on how the tire pressure monitoring system rule impacts the aftermarket
•Basic facts about tires: tire pressure, maintenance, labeling, ratings, etc.)
• Basic tire safety information

There's also TUV (Germany) and I think some Japanese standards for wheel design as well.


Seems to me in today's legal and product liability climate you'd be playing financial Russian roulette to bring a wheel to market with minimal or no testing.

Going to be purchasing 18x9.5 +35 RPF1's for my 16 STI. I understand i need ARP studs and 10mm spacers up front.

Do i need to get the spacers with the lip around the middle or just the flat ones will do?

Agreed.

Though I'd use very thin flat spacers as long as the OE hub's own centering ring could still engage the bore of the wheel. But we're talking very thin spacers here, on the order of 1 or 2 mm to solve a light strut rub, not the kind that people use to intentionally push the wheels noticeably further out than stock.

New tires, fenders rolled/pulled, and dropped the car more and maxed out the rear coils. No rubbing at all and car handles a bit better now.

Sounds like more than enough to make hubcentric spacers the smart choice.

^
what if the enkei inner bore doesnt have space for the oe studs with hubcentric spacers attached? Also, he won't be able to tighten the nuts 7 full turns with the 5mm spacers, he'll get 6 full turns, hence why he needs the arp studs and 10mm. My previous volks had space for the oe studs inside the inner barrel with the kics hubcentrics spacers attached, with my advans now, there's no space for the oe studs in the inner barrel. cant speak much on it, unless you've experienced it, just my 2 cents.
