Funny, I was just on the BBS-USA site looking at the RG-R's then noticed your thread resurrection. All they showed there was a 17x8 +32 (RG721) and a 17x9.5 +38 (RG726). I see on your link the size you were looking for showed to be a special factory order. Availability may be the issue if you want new as the RG-R's seem to be limited or discontinued in the 17" size.

I have some pics over in my build thread of 18 inch RG-Rs on my FD and I was surprised by how great they look on a black FD

You beat me to it Rich, I was coming back to let THAD know you had a set of 18's for sale. Those diamond black wheels sure do look sweet on a black FD!

Yeah availability seems to be an issue, but I think I've found a set. I'll let you guys know what comes of it.

Not that it's super easy to get a hold of them anymore, but I can confirm fitment of RG-Rs in 17x8 +40 and 17x9 +42

Just want to revise and double check.

At the biggining of the thread it's saying the 17x9 +42 Offset won't clear the front due to caliper clearance
But it's for the RS FD with larger caliper right ?

It'll however fit usdm spec FD with no problem ?

just to clear Some things up officially. The front usdm FD brakes can fit the RG-R in 17x9 +42. With additional 3mm brake clearance, no Spacers needed
