      No plans for 17's as of yet. No plans for narrower widths either.

      19" versions in the same widths and offsets are already in the works and should be available in November.

      Offset is not the only factor that determines clearance and fitment. Tire sizes, suspension height, alignment/camber settings, etc. will all factor in.

      This particular fitment with this offset is better suited for a slightly more stretched tire like a 215/40 if you have static suspension like springs or coilovers, or a 215/35 if you have air ride.

      I am running a 215/40 on my R with slightly rolled front fenders and I have no rubbing issues whatsoever.

      Can we do et45? I think 42 will rub too much, I rub now with stock wheels? Do you have white cut in stock?

      No et45 option at this time. You should probably roll the inner lip on your front fenders and run a slightly stretched 215/40 tire. This is the exact setup I am running above with rolled fenders, and I don't rub at all.

      White/Cut will be available in 3-4 weeks. They are en route in our second container as I type this.

      We do not have the red center caps. That is being offered in the UK only right now.

      The 0.05 is about 26 lbs.

      We are only doing the 0.01 by special order. We're not stocking it at the moment.

      The wheels don't stick out of the wheel well do they? Can you take pics from the front and back down the side of the car? On stretched tires, how is the handling? I am not in it just for looks, I would expect it to be functional as well. On the website, it says they only come in ET35 and ET 45 in 18x8.5. Thank you for your responses.

      No pics of square fitment at the moment. Soon.

      The offsets selected are perfectly flush.

      See below.

      No, the 8.5's don't poke at all.

      Depending on the exact tire you select, a 215/40 can have the exact same section width as a given 225/40. Do your research on the available tires within your budget.

      The website does not break down the available offsets by bolt pattern. The offsets quoted above are what is available for the 5x112 fitment.

      I cannot even see the wheels in the picture, looks just all black. Can you take a pic down the side. Is it flush? Do the wheels stick out past the wheel well? Any rubbing? Can't even tell if your car is lowered.

      car is lowered on coils. they sit pretty flush no poke at all. could maybe use a 3mm spacer in the rear but not a must. don know on rubbing because i havnt driven the car yet but by the looks of it i should be fine.

      We still have a lot of people asking if the wheels have arrived yet, so in case it wasn't already clear, yes, the container arrived some time ago, we have already fulfilled all outstanding pre-orders, and we have stock available.

      We are also in the process of signing up a few dealers to carry the wheels as well, so they will be available from places local to many of you very soon.

      Any update on the white/cuts?

      Not that I need to spend any money, but I did put in an order, so it's like it's money already spent.
