17x9.5 et30 225/45

Fenders pulled a good amount up front. 22.75" ground to fender.
Rub pretty good on any kind of turn.

Did you have to have those custom made from wheeldude? If so do you mind sharing/pm'ng price and wait time?

Used to have a subaru, so I've always loved grid's and te37's

Ok, I must be misunderstanding the tire profile. You're talking about 9.5" wide right? But you're listing 225/45 which seems a lot narrower than 9.5" because my 3000GT is at 8.5" and I'm at 255. And what's ET30?

EDIT: The pictures aren't loading at work so the only thing I'm thinking is you're stretching the crap out of the tires

Running 225's on mine, so the stretch isn't TOOO bad......but I hate the stretched tire look. Putting on 8.5" wheels with 225's some time next week

No thanks a local guy is already rocking some 006's just like that. I have a set in mind and I'll just make it work, nice setup though :)

Is it just me or do the rims in the 1st pics look like hes got some crazy dish going on. Look at the close up...doesnt really look like a dish at all... just a lip.
Nice wheels tho :)

You must be new here ;)

Yes, people are running stretched tires. It's a euro look, been debated a billion times, the end result is that no one cares about anyone else's opinion. I'm running a 235 on my 10" wide wheels and I still don't think it's that bad.

ET30 is the offset. If you aren't sure what that is, Clicky click (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Offset_(wheel)).

How heavy are those things?

I have my eye on some 18x10 v710 but they would run real tires. Like 285/30-18.

^^Those look awesome

The wheels I'm running aren't lightweight by ANY means.....They're more like rotating anchors, at over 33lbs a piece, upon further research. New wheels are a good 13lbs lighter a piece

I'm shooting for 40-45 pounds for a mounted and balanced 285/30-18 or 265/35-18 on a v710.

would 18x9 et+20 be an issue to fit?
