Default Opinion on Wheels

I can't decide which would look nicer on the car...

these or..
these.

Opinions? I find the first set to be extremely unique as I haven't seen them anywhere before. the first set is 21 lbs a wheel. the 2nd is 19 lbs a wheel. They're a local manufacturer so they're not expensive at all!

A company called Fast.

http://www.fastwheels.ca/



That's the only close to "real" picture I could find of the first wheel. The uniqueness really attracts me.



Randomly found these too which i find epic.

Fast makes decent wheels. I prefer the second set as well. Those are actually reps of HRE P101 wheels. What size are you looking at?

I just bought 235/40R18 tires. They come in 18x8, 18x9, or 18x10. I don't know much about offset (they come in either +30 or +40) and such as i'm new to aftermarket wheels.

But I do know that I plan on staying on stock suspension and would rather not roll my fenders. Would like to go as aggressive as I can with the set up though

It seems that +40 offset is too low and will rub unfortunately.. So will have to look for another wheel

I just sold a set of 18x8 +40 with 225-40 and they never rubbed, don't be afraid of the +40 offset. Plus, most fender rollers charge about $20 per fender, and you only need to do the rears.

I'm gonna be running 235/40R18 (if that makes any difference). I just really want to avoid the hassle of rolling. I spoke to someone at 1010tires and they told me the wheel would rub against the caliper from the front... Found that extremely surprising :S

LOL what?? +40 means it will be closer to the fenders than factory spec (which is +52 offset). I think +40 is doable especially with 235/40 on a 18x8 wheel.

I have +40 with 235/40r18 wrapping. Rolled the rears and just graze the bumper tabs on dips. Depending on your brand of rubber, the actual tread width can vary a bit so keep that in mind.

Willtheyfit.com is a great tool to compare different wheel specs against each other. When you start playing with wheel widths, offsets, spacers, sometimes all the numbers jumble together after a while, so it's nice to actually see a comparison. It also gives you a rough idea how the tire will sit on the rim too.

The first set are unique and you won't see anything too similar out the road. The more I look at them, the more I dig them.

You are GEN1 I believe. Gen 2 have more room from what i've been reading. It's hard to find a definitive answer, some say it will rub some say there will be no problem.

I Might end up going with the first set just to be safe.

Ya I forgot about the extra room with the pu's. I know it applies to the front clearances, can't remember about the rears. There's tons of fitment threads though that it's been addressed. Tires play a role in having no definitive or contradicting answers to the rubbing issues though.

Those wheels will look dope, but you really can't go wrong with either of those choices.

My Advan wheels are 18x8.5 +38 and I'm rolling 245 40 tires with no rub anywhere. Flushed the gap on the fenders perfectly and with plenty of room everywhere in the wheel wells.

Are you saying 18x9 +40 would even fit on stock suspension without any modification? Reason being is because I could get a more concave look out of the wheels

I think it would be close but if anything a slight roll to the rears.

And my vote goes to the third bronze set.

No rubbing!! 18x9 +40. it would probably rub if i were to drop the car but for now. i'm golden! I just got them installed tonight but they look mean! Will get better pics soon.

I was thinking of getting different colour lug nuts. Any ideas? Gold? Neochrome?

A local shop. I weighed the wheels and they were 18.5 lbs each =) And they only cost me 215$ each brand new!
