I'm in the market for some new wheels. I've always liked the look of the 11r and the d9r. I went really conservative with my Nurburgrings in 18x7.5 et 45. I want a more aggressive fitment now. I'm on H&R springs now but am considering coils. I know the magic number is 8.5 wide et 45 for little or no mods. The wheels I'm after are either 19 or 18x8.5 et 38. Oshiguru had 11r 18x9.5 et 38 and claimed to have very little rubbing. So I'm thinking 8.5 should be doable without a lot of work. Tire size would be 235/35/19 or 225/40/18. I've had rear camber arms for a few months but haven't installed them yet.

Also, Work has a couple of new wheel designs. The M8R and the RS Alpha

Any recommendations on where to purchase them from also? I know Evasive Motorsports is an option. I'm in California

With H&R, 8 or 8.5 et38 will definitely need fender roll or camber tweak. Make sure your toe is good when you add negative camber or your tires won't last. Love Work wheels. Personally, I'd stay coservative et45 & play w/ spacers to get more poke. Here's Darryl's on Tein FlexZs, Work 19x8 et42 & 225/40 & fender roll, if I recall right.:)

I had 18x8.5 +40 (5 mil spacer) with 235/40/18 on cork sport springs in the pic below. The rear fenders were rolled flat. The front sat flush nicely.

Evasive is where I got my Volk's, and I highly recommend them. Very knowledgeable, and great with communication.

So the wheels were et45 and you ran a spacer to bring them to et40?

There are a couple of Weds that I'm interested in too. The sa10r mostly. But I can't tell about that Zebra bright black paint scheme. Also the Rota Titan has caught my eye(tc105 rep)
