Got some 205/50 Azenis RT-615 for the front:









Need to lower it a bit -but then when I put the Enkei back on I'll have to adjust the coilovers every time.... I think I'm just going to lower the front and run these for the season.

I overnighted them from Japan.




The wheels are Crager Soft 8 15x8 in a +6 offset WITH SPACERS 6mm front and 10mm rear... The front CALIPERS SHAVED for clearance.
This is not a bolt on affair and will require a small amount of common sense and effort.

please no one else PM me or ask what wheels they are.... read the ******* thread.

I don't suppose anyone knows if you can get these in the UK at all? Or what would be the best procedure for doing so? Importing things cost so much more money!

If you're running stock tire sizes, why not go with stock wheels?

im very curious about those 13lbs each ones that look similar. i can't justify putting larger wheels under my car when my oem bbs's weigh 12.4lbs each and aftermarket stuff weighs 17-22lbs each. the heavier wheels require more power to turn and make the car feel less responsive. i guess when it's a boosted motor you can turn up the boost another notch to compensate, but im not into the turbo thing. im building an na motor (plus class restricts it lol)

wait a minute :l

you got these wheels to downsize, and be able to spin more?

205/60-15's are almost exactly the same size 18's with 215/40, and i mean almost exactly as in, there is only a 2mm difference in diameter and you said yourself that they are lighter

all you did was buy heavier wheels, that are 3 inches smaller in diameter, and then made up for it with a 5" tire?

in short, that would be like doing weight reduction in your car, and then welding 100lbs of steel to it

the rim doesn't compress for rotation like the tires do. the rubber compound will give allowing the wheels to turn easier then an 18" wheel which has short sidewall tires on it.

however with the difference in weight the 18's should have still be easier to turn. are you sure that you didn't do anything else performance wise when you installed these heavier wheels? i would understand if you went from an 18" wheel to some stock bbs wheels which only weigh in at 12.6 pounds a piece but not those heavy things
