Anybody have any pics of these rims on your gencoupe? I've been looking around but no luck yet, and the discount tire wheels on your car previewer is kinda lame. I'm wanting to get these in gunmetal gray, with a chrome lip for my nord grey.

Any pics would be appreciated! :)

I actually really like the Drag DR18's but I can't find anyone who carries them in 19's. :( Which means they proabably don't make them. :wtc:

I would like to see a pick of the DR19's as well. Good luck in your search.

I doubt anyone has those on a GC.:fleshbox:
They only come in 7.5" width > offset E45. = NFG
:hello:

Not too sure about offsets and all that, but a friend of mine is a manager at one of the discount tire shops nearby and he says they'll fit. What would be wrong with a 7.5 offset? What offset should I look for? I'm more into engine stuff, never been a wheel and tire guy.

The offset isn't 7.5. The rim width is 7.5, and that's way to skinny. The factory 18s are 8.0 and 8.5 wide if I remember right.

I had these wheels on my old cobalt SS, just in black and chrome, and loved them. I'm not a huge fan of the deep dish style of rims, if thats what you mean? Or are you saying the wheel itself will be skinny? I was able to fit 225 and 245 tires on my old set. If its slightly smaller than stock width wise, wouldnt that also benefit me weight wise?

Those are the Track/R-Spec widths of the 19's.

The stock 18's are 7.5 and 8.0 wide.

While probably all true, for performance/grip purposes with summer tires, you want a wider tire than what you should put on a 7.5" wide wheel. 275 wide tires (up to a max of about a 305) in the rear don't really work on a 7.5" wheel.

If these wheels are for winter tires, then 7.5" wide wheel is actually more preferable (skinny cuts through snow better).

i had these on my old tiburon. They do not fit the genesis coupe well because the rim is not wide enough and they sit too far in. I sold them and bought different rims for my gencoupe.

I appreciate the knowledgable responses :) I guess with wheel spacers I could get them to flush out more, and they'd be okay for daily driving, but for track days, I'll have to find a wider wheel. Thanks again for the help!

Tenzo makes a very similar wheel and with better sizes/offsets. Have you tried looking at them?
