Good deal on a set of Gram Lights at TR

Tire Rack has one set of Gram Lights 57c wheels that would fit an FD.

After I had thought there weren't any available, I went ahead and bought a set of RP-F1's - then I get an email from Nate. Bad timing on my part.

Here's the deal: They have 1 set

18x9.5
5x114.3
Bronze
38mm offset

The price: 179.00 each

This is less than half the standard price. These wheels are discontinued, hence the low price.

Contact Nate at the Tire Rack 888-541-1777 ext 688.

Nate will be in the office Friday 10:00-8:00 ET and Saturday 9:00-4:00 ET

I posted this here as this is a great racing wheel.

fudge yeah, thanks for the heads up. i ordered five incase i destroyed one. i was thinking about getting the rpf1 from rishie but wasn't sure if it will clear my bbk. do you know how much they weigh at 18x9.5? tire rack had them at 17lbs but their 18x8 was 18 lbs!!!!!how is this possible? the 18x9.5 is 1.5" wider therefore should be heavier correct. please also let me know if the 285s fit w/0 rubbing b/c we have the same offset. thanks again. you just saved me money on my car insurance kvn

Nice, glad someone here picked them up.

In regards to weight, about 20 lbs I think. Hard to find any info on them as they are discontinued.

Regarding fit, it's pretty close, and requires rolling the fenders, and possibly mucking about with the front fender liners. Others have used this identical wheel size with 285/30/18 Kumho v710's.

As for clearing the BBK, what size wheel do you have now? And what size rotors?

I have 6 pot Wilwood Superlights on the front on 325mm Coleman rotors. These clear the stock wheels (barely) and fit quite well with Kosei T1S in 16x8.5 +38mm.

38mm offset should push the wheels out far enough to avoid spokes.

Please see my fitment thread for this wheel:
