I'm in the market for matte black RPF1's, first mod I have a question about wheel specs and didn't want to start a new thread.

My car is DD, i don't track it, but drive hard from time to time on the streets, and I want some light weight wheels that don't cost an arm and leg.

There is a vendor (Oakos) who is selling matte black RPF1's but the sizes offered for the matte black style is 18x10.5. Some people have gone with 18x10.5 all around but is this a little too wide for my purpose? im thinking 275x40 tires all around would be the recommended tire size. Will these specs make the z look like a monster truck? And is it right for my purpose?

It will look off with stock suspension. If you go with that setup, to keep it looking mean, get it dropped, roll the fenders and call it good.

Default Enkei RPF1 wheels..

I'd like to replace my stock 18" wheels with these Enkeis.

I'd like to stick with the same 8" and 8.5" widths I have now and same tire sizes.

What offsets do I need to match the stock rims....please advise.

I've searched, but found nothing definitive, as many folks go much wider, or NOT staggered.

...but I'd like to go no more than 245s up front or maybe not staggered at all.

Further my car now has Tein S springs and 20mm spacers so I'd like an offset that brings my wheels out to the same look.

^again r u doing this because your a cheap as*? TeinS springs barely brings the car down so that shouldn't be anything to worry about. Go with 245/40 front and 275/40 rear and u should be fine from rubbing (but roll it anyways, dont be cheap).

RPF1 with +15 offsets > Stock wheels with 20mm spacers

Sell your spacers dude
