If your not willing to buy new tires, dont waste the $ on new rims. The whole point of buying rims is to give the car a more aggressive look and improve performance right? Wider is better, etc. etc....plus, there are way better tires out there than whats on the car stock.

Spacers.....why? You should have gotten a lower offset...no reason to run anything higher anything in the +20 range. Look at the first post, Grimm's car has Front 19x8.5 +15 w/ 245/35/19 tires and Rear 19x10 +20 w/ 275/30/19 tires...and fitment is GREAT....now, your running 18's...so that means you can fit something even more aggressive, and by looking at that pic, his wheels fit flush and aren't crazy....with coilovers slammed with some camber they would clear fine.

You should have gotten these on all 4 corners....
18x9.5 +20.....they have the deepest face in those wheels...DEEP TYPE 3!!!!..mmmm...right now your deep type 1 upfront, type 2 in the rear....so unbalanced looking!


...and WHY did you stagger. There are so many reasons why not to run staggered wheels. 1, you cant rotate, so have fun buying new tires soon. 2, your front will understeer more now than ever, simply because the rear has a wider track and will literally push the car through a corner, and 3, it looks lame.

If you want wheels to fit on your car, make them fit! God made hammers and baseball bats to roll and pull fenders with! :)

And also, i ran spacers for years drifting and on my daily driver....and i noticed something, wheel bearings pooping out on me after like half a year. Wheel spacers put stress on the entire hub assembly and dont allow the wheel to actually be mounted flush to the hub itself. A lot of cheap spacers have uneven surfaces that result in uneven tire wear, noise, and bad bearings. Be careful, and just order wheels that have a nice offset. IF anything, order something you think is a little much, chances are with some camber and the right tire choice, they will more than likely fit perfect.

Just some info from my past experiences.
WOW. Thats an opinion. I have ran spacers for years. No problem. Also these were the wheels I wanted. There wasn't much of an offset choice. Plus other reasons. Too each his own. Everybody good luck on whatever choice you make

7.5 and 8.5 is a bit diff than 8.0 and 8.5.....the car handles better with a wider track up front. The car stock understeers....a bit much i think. Your right its just an opinion, but, i just hate to see people waste $. thats all

Why was it a waste of money if I got the look I was looking for? Your talking about things, that to me, aren't going to matter that much with this car. My AutoX days are done. This car is to provide me with a backseat for my girls and SOME sports car enthusiasm when needed. Yes, I want more power, yes the handling will be better with descent shocks, springs or coilovers, but to say I wasted my money, because I wanted a different look than the OEM's is somewhat out of line. IMO.

idrum, did you really just ask why someone put a staggered wheel set on his coupe? you do know it comes that way STOCK and to go with unstaggered wheels will kill the way the car handles?
Tell me about it. Does he even know what he's taking about?

If you don't like staggered fitment, go buy a FWD vehicle.

The first ones are Volk te37's... but these pics are from korea (bkmania).. unless anyone can speak korean and go there and ask it's likely we won't know.

Love the te37's on this car but know EVERYONE will be gettin them... so I'm probably not.

Personally I would like to find some lighter wheels. The front factory 19s with the tire weigh 56lbs!!

If I were to buy new wheels they would be 18s and the same size front and rear. I would also run the same size tire in the back as the front. And get some tires that have a better rim protector. :( I miss my Kumhos.

coexrjguy have you installed your ZR+520 wheels yet?

If so, then please post pics...I am seriously considering the same wheel in gunmetal for my limerock green gc.

I am also interested in what the group's wisdom is on recommended offsets for 8.5" front and 9.5" or 10" rear wheel widths...

Just went with:

5Zigen ZR+250 Matte Bronze on Red coupe

Front: 18x8.5 +25 using stock rear tire - 245/45/18

Rear: 18x9.5 +20 265/40/18

Will post pics when I get them on....

Hey KrAk3n-H3adzZ, can you post more pics?

Have you installed your pro-kit yet?

I have the pro-kit on my base, and am considering the same wheels as you (in Gunmetal for my Lime Rock Green), so am interested in how yours look with the pro-kit...
