Very nice choice! Are you going to run spacers with that wide of a rim and tire?

Really excited to see them with a photoshoot.

not sure... people are telling me i should be fine w/o spacers.. but on this test fit, the gap is only about a half inch maybe less. i feel like there will be rubbing... i may need to do maybe a 3mm spacer... anything over that i will have to get longer studs which is something im trying to avoid right now..


i have been debating about going with a smaller tire... i dont want any stretch at all!!!!
right now i bought some 245/40 through my friend who is a shop manager at a local STS. i can always return them and maybe go with a 235/40 tire... wont go any smaller than that!

hmm same offset as the evo and damn do they look hot. I would love to see if they come in 5x114. I am sure they would clear the brembos.
