      I've had my Enkei RPF-1s on for a couple of weeks now. Really like them. They also weight 15.5 lbs per wheel, but they are 17x8.

      Volk CE28N 18x8.5 = 16lbs.
      Volk RE30 18x8 = 17lbs. But also 30% stronger.
      Volk wheels are strong and light. Plenty of strong and light wheels from Japan!

      Finally got my PSS9's installed, just got to get her dialled in. She really fills soooooo much lighter on her feet. Corners everywhere are running in fear! No more boat anchors for me. I say save your money up no matter how long it takes and bite the bullet. Get some strong lightweight and you will be amazed at the performance.....

      Looking good neighbor. Light wheels and PSS9's work perfect. Those WORK wheels are awesome. Hard to find the correct offset for german cars when buying JDM wheels.

      cool thread

      Volk RE30's 18x8" strong and light at only 17 lbs.

      Used to be like hyper silver but I scratched one up so had them all powdercoated ORANGE.

      The wheels used to be ordinary, now they are Extra Ordinary !!
      Actually gets tons of attentions, good or bad it still draws attention.

      Thanks! Soooooo true! My wheels are 8.5 but because of the offset I can only do 225's. I would love to do 235's or even 245's to really increase handling. Anything above 225 rubs under hard cornering in front. I have 12mm in front and 15mm in back. Soon I will be getting some 17 inch RPF-1's to put in work at the track. Oh yeah RC keep sporting those orange Volks they are the business!! Pop ya collar and brush them hatters off!

      LoL, sure nuff

      Like them so much I put my staggered Rial Daytona's up for sale. Four 18x8.5" and two 18x9.5" split wheels. Loved the look, low and fat ! But, the strange color sticks out more than staggered split wheels.
