Why do you think they won't fit? What is your front offset? I have meister's with 255/35/18 kdw2 rubber and a +48 offset on a 18x9 up front and that was the recommended tire size. Btw they should arive in a couple weeks so no pics yet lol. Edit, now I see. Your offsets are about opposite of mine . I'm + 48 in front on a 18x9 and + 43 in the rear on a 18x10. I prefer a more staggered look.

Love the rims, but I also wonder how they will look on MB. I own an MB and I think it is the hardest colour out of the FD lineup to match wheels for.

i test fit the fronts yesterday. seem ok but im cutting it verry close but i dont think i will have to roll fenders. but the rear i want to know if i can run 5 mm spacers out back. like these http://www.racinglab.com/whmalialwhsp1.html
is there any prob with the hubcentric rings and running spacers?


but yes they came from tire rack originally. rx7will on "the other site" bought them and sold em to me cause he went another route.
