Ive ordered these rims from sport max off ebay in gold and just needed some help with tire sizes. here are the wheels specs.

front tires 17x7 offset +38
rear tires 17x9 offset +35

i would like some nice low profile tires for these.

lol i dunno i guess i thought it sounded cool. Numb - One = isolated one is the easiest i can break it down.

i'm on this small island and was the 2nd down here with a SW20.

yeah man they shud have um the store name is SGmotoring. they only have like 3 really nice rims though. but 4 the price and the staggered setups u cant beat um.

$420 for 4 also check subydude on ebay they have the new rota D2's replicas of the SRII's $555 for 4. it will be tricky getting staggered though but ive seen people with 17x7.5 17x8.5 on their 2's.

yeah man i will post pics as soon as i get them on. along with my new paint job and lowering :D

well my car is being sprayed at the moment in a vibrant dark red. and dark shade of bronze with a black dusting will suit it opposed to gold. gold would go well with the oem crimpson red.

The rims and tires actually fit nicely and they dont look so shabby on the stock suspension (bilstein option 1992 Japan), no need to roll fenders with the clearance i'm getting. the paint job came out all right still have to give it another buff

SportMax 962
17x7 - 215/40/17ZR
17x9 - 255/40/17ZR



I'll have some cleaner pics up this week with pictures showing clearance and fitment.

245s will rub?

numbone, do you know what the weight of those wheels? I love the look of 'em but I'm having a very hard time envisioning gold wheels on a dark red without shuddering :p

I'd love to see those clearance pics. I find it very hard to believe a 17x9 +35 with 255 tires does not rub in the rear.

Hit some hard bumps, and I bet you'll hear the scraping.
