The optimal squared set would be 9.5" not 8.5", for this car, not nonM e46s or e36 m3s. You should not be running a 8.5" in the rear, esp if tracking and you shouldn't be going square really unless tracking.

Given that all other reps (and stock wheels) are mid-20 lbs or more, a 21 lb one is great, notwithstanding Obioban's odd statement.

Fitments described are direct bolt on without any work required which is what the majority of guys will run for the street. For the smaller % of guys going on for a stance look or track purposes, the 18x9.5 ET22 or 19x9.5 ET22 can work up front. Definitely no clearance issues out back. However, it would be considered semi aggressive up front & will require negative camber up front to have the proper fender to tire clearance.

Assuming this is a street car running street tires, you will need approximately -2.6 to -3 degrees of camber up front to achieve enough tire to fender clearance for 265/35/18's. 275/35/18's street tires will require approximately -3 to -3.5 degrees of negative camber up front. This is a bit aggressive for a street car and is not typically recommended.

Hope that helps to clarify a few things!

Any plans for 17x9.5 with 22et and 35et? If these came in under 17 pounds like Arc8 I would buy.

It is a good looking wheel. I just wish that: it was offered in more sizes (18x9.5 et 28-35 and a 18x10 size maybe), it was a little lighter weight (seems like the spokes are a tiny bit thick), and that the concave rear fitments looked like the genuine ZCP/CSL without the kink in the spoke. The second two are just nitpicking if I'm honest but would be nice.

yea that's what i thought. but not everyone uses spacers and actually prefer the oem specs.

Sportline as well as many other wheel companies take that into consideration and build the wheels to be slightly more aggressive to achieve a flush look without the need to use spacers.

Are you requesting that moderators push sponsor products on you as opposed to having independent thought?
