Default F1R F21 18X8.5 +38

Got the wheels from Audio City USA.

Direct fit, no spacers. Roll and 1/4 inch pull in the rear, a little shave on the rear fascia lips, nothing in front. No rubs.

Should help if you're in doubt about fitment.

What size tire are you running?

I just bought some 18X8.5 +35 Konig Milligrams so am curious if I will have issues

Edit: I've got a GenPu

235 40 18 Sumi HTR. On the 8.5 a 235 40 gives you about 1/2 inch of stretch.

The +35 is only 3mm further out to the fender lip, which is a negligible amount-wouldn't think that would give you an issue. I know you Pu guys have a lil more room to play with-you may want to check with one of the size calcs on the knowledge forum in the "Will They Fit?" thread to see where they're gonna sit versus the stockers.

Car handles tighter...a lil wander when tires are cold due to the negative camber, otherwise nicey nicey

Good luck bro

Looks clean. I was also going to go with the F1R f21's but decided on the f18s. Love the way it looks though!
