Too bad the 3's don't come in better sizes, I don't like the angled spokes of the 1 or 2.

Here is what the ones might look like in a better color. I would do a bronze or silver if I got them.

I emailed them. They said painting them voids the warranty, and they offer no other colors.

I told them that they have a nice wheel design in an awful color option. If they had sense they would at least offer a silver. That is pretty much a standard in the industry. I am going to see if 1010 might offer some srot of option.

You most likely have to unless you run a stiff spring at a stock height. I wish toyota didn't put that stupid lip back there.

It's the tire that rubs...so what size tire you plan to run?
Also depends on camber and how lowered the car
I use 17x9" 30mm offset all around (rears have 15mm spacers so effective offset on rear is 15mm) with 245/40 and it will rub back sometimes
If you run 235s I'm am 99.9% sure you won't have any rubbing HTH

Edited for rear spacers

I updated post above re spacers

Basically under conditions where rear shocks would compress significantly like high speed cornering or highway speeds and dips in the road
it would rub the tire in the area where small triangle is see attached pic for reference (not my tire)

Just roll the rear lip with a fender roller, it should be easy enough for you to do and then 245's fit easily.

OK, I have found alloys that I want but they only in 5 x 112 :(
http://cars.donedeal.ie/alloyswheels-fo ... ys/7391435

Questions is is there enough space to fit adapters if the wheels are 18" x 8 and et35 to bolt up to my hubs which are 5 x 100?
My car is a 92 gt4 CS
I'm sure someone on here must have had the same problem??

Thanks.

You do in the rear, but not in the front. That wheel is a common style, I bet you can find it from another company in a very close style. They look like a replcia of an old enki wheel.
While not the same, this is a similar style. Just google 10 spoke enkei and you might find the older wheel the one you posted is a copy of. Honestly I would keep looking till you found something that did not need adapters. There are so many wheels out there now, there are plenty of options.

Got hold of the seller and wheels are actually 18 x 9 and et40.

Does that make any difference??
If i can get away with using adapters these are best option for me at the moment as i can get them alot cheaper than advertised...
