Unless I buy 2 sets of new wheels I will keep them as a road wheel. I still have my old adr wheels for long trips if I ever take them. I am starting to lean towards buying a trailer to tow the car instead though to keep from racking up uneccessary miles.

I got these to fit up 17x7.5 48 offset with a set of 215/40/17 tires. I put a rear 25mm spacer on in the rear.

They fit great the front does not rub, but it is about 13mm (35 to 48 offset) back in the fender and closer to the strut.

I think it would look a little better with a pair of 10mm spacers in the front, but it fits fine now.

Another affordable light wheel option. Might need to run a 5mm spacer though. http://www.apexraceparts.com/apex-produ ... CBQmivCM2E

Then the price/weight ratio is way off to consider them!

I think its more of a bragging wheel than anything. You only save maybe 1-2lb vs buying a set of volks in the same size. I am mostly surprised they are offered in a size that would work on a gtfour.

I noticed Enkei are coming out with new offsets and sizes for 5x100 most likely for the FRS. Would the RPF1 17x8.5 +30 offset fit front and rear without rolling fenders?

I might consider these as my next wheel. Repainted of course. Not a fan of the color they come in. They are a 5x100 option as well. Under 200 per wheel and they are 17.4lbs in the size I would get.

No idea. I would research them more to find out why. It might have to do with being a new company and trying to gain some ground or they are junk. I found a few decent reviews on them but not a lot of info yet.

Well there are these. They are similar to my wheels. I thought about getting one as a spare since I can not longer find my wheels. The spoke width my be a little closer to the Nismos.
