id go with the 48
both are so close it hardly matters, most rims people are runnin on our cars are 48
52.5 is stock, so its closer to that too

I rock 245's on a 18x8 +50 and the only time I ever had rub was at the outside of the rear tire, or at FULL lock and compressed suspension the outside front tire will touch on the inside

so a +48 would make my situation 2mm worse in the rear but a lil better in the front

get some stiff springs/coils and you wont have to worry about the back compressing as much as stock and the tire shouldnt hit the fender lip no more

haha nittos will rock when the snow falls, i suggest you run those

j/k


looks like the tire size you are gonna want to run is a 245/50/16 (assuming you want to go with 245's)
if you need the tire to be cheap and handle well in the snow, my personal favorite is the yokohama avid V4s
its cheap (a hair over 100 a tire), its very good in the wet and it can drive in the snow pretty good
the only downside is that its an all season (you knew that) and the speed rating is only V, but that doesnt mean ya cant hit 150, just dont stay at 150

Not bad in light snow, but terrible on ice/slush/deep snow.

I've done insane speeds on H rated tires in my dumber younger years so anything higher then that is fine for me. I think V is rated for like 130 right?

hey wtf do I know, but that color is close enough to hyper silver which looks great on anything. and I know bronze looks good on red, we seen that, so whats to say a smidge of bronze mixed in with hypersilver wouldnt be sick

I hate the design of that wheel you posted, but that color is nice

you get my vote

hmm that color is almost further from bronze than I thought.
that pic is dark but im still thinking they would look good.

a dark lugnut would be nice, whereas a silver lug would look like shit


those pics you found kinda suck, bronze is so close to steel gray, i dig it
And since its clearly not gold, it wont attract ass pirates


am I missing something? I like the color on just about anything except for my Cosmic Purple.





I assume you saw these pics too, not the slips, but give a much better indicator color on a red car.

not in 16x8 I was told they called rota to order them and rota said there not making them for a while cause a 16x 8 wasn't really in demand. and they had left over sport bronze ones.. i could get the 16x7 easy but i cant fit any decent tire on that......

Those are going to look so badass on there I can't wait to see pics. I'm almost thinking about getting rid of my 18x7.5 MB Drifters to rock some 16x8 light weight rims. As soon as I swap out to my winter set, I have a few months to try to sell them too. Hummmmm...
