hey guys, its been quite a long time since I posted on here and just want to check in and see how you all are doing. I have a question for you guys as well.

I have aquired a set of RSL Elite rims. they are 19x7.5 with a 48 offset(listed on back of wheel, i hope that is the right number.) anyways, they are on a 215/35/19 nankang tire. My question is, with that offset...will i need lonnger wheel studs? reason being is when they are mounted the lug nuts wont screw in all the way dut to hole clearence. Are there special lug nuts i can buy or something? thanks all...here is a teaser pic :)

Get some spline drive lug nuts (Muteki or other brand) to get the lug nuts to go all the way down.

You will probably want a 10mm spacer in the front and 15-20mm in the rear to get it to look right and clear the struts. When you get the spacers (H&R or Ichiba make good hubcentric spacers) they will come with longer studs.

Do you already have the correct hubcentric ring for the wheels?

i dont have any hubcentric rings or anything, what do i need?
Check out the question in this FAQ about hubcentric rings:

http://www.discounttire.com/dtcs/infoWheelFAQ.dos

I don't know what the hub bore is on the wheels you have, but the Camry hub center diameter is 54.1mm. You will need to get a set of rings to help center the wheel to avoid vibrations at high speeds. You can get a set of them on eBay for cheap once you figure out the hub bore of your wheels.

Paint looks nice but please remove the gay looking fender vents--they only belong on Oldsmobiles and Maseratis.

did you do something to the fenders to make it look like that?If not that is nice but the left side of the fender looks a little awkward to me.

its proally just the picture, ill get some new ones up soon enough though.

does anyone know of a place online where I can get a RS Limited wheel?

The only site where I can buy a single wheel is here

http://74.125.47.132/search?q=cache...7.5&cd=4&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us&client=firefox-a

they want $20 to sign up and become a member, and they have warehouses

that they search in, no phone number or contact info until ur a member, wtf?

the whole site looks like a joke to me, wadda yall think?

Nice can't wait to see it done but I'm with everyone else on the stick on fender vents. Remove asap! I couldn't believe that when I saw it. Almost wanted to punch the computer screen.

update

well , turns out i need to get some spacers for the rear, because they barely rub the strut. tHE front has no rub at all and I can fully turn the wheels also.

It looks like I have a 1/4 of an inch to play with in the rear before I would have to roll the inner fender lip which is like 1/4 inch.

I think 5mm in the rear would be ok what do you guys think?
