Dope. I guess my setup wont work than.

Did a quick chop to compare. Hate how rpf1s don't come in x11, picking up a pair of white 206s for the rear. Might be able to pull it off and not look too weird. I've had other wheels where the front and the rears were the same wheel but did not look the same due to disk shape and face design for brake clearance.

Been doin a lot of searching and found cosmis wheels. Does anybody know if the xt-005 wheels will fit nicely at:
Front: 18x9 +25
Rear: 18x10 +20

basically will they fit as it sits(no spacer, no rubbing etc) and what size tires would you recommend? Stock height at the moment
I think they fit but before I drop the money I'd like some others input thanks guys

Yes, conservative specs. I'd run 18x10 all around.

How are you guys saying an 18x11+8 won't fit up front? This is a 19x10 -9 which is more aggressive and I have stock a arms and fenders

^Lol, zoomed out pic before we agree that you are actually "fitting" that combo.

Nice job on the pics...a good example of how you have to fit a wheel/tire like that, offensively! Clean car, welcome to the forums.

Thumbs up NEW Cosmis MR-II

18 x 9.5 +15
18 x 10.5 + 20
Gunmetal, no rub at all with offset. Perfect fit, will be on coilovers in spring so we'll see how they look. Bought BC Coils. Will probably do a review on them once the time comes.

Ok so being a complete noob on wheels and tires (forgive me lol) I just have a few questions if any body has any insight it would be much appreciated. Im pretty much sold on the XT-206r rims but I'm not quite sure about sizing. I would like a happy medium of performance and comfort. I've read through this thread a few times trying to answer my own questions but I just can't get it. I was thinking of the 18x9 for the front and the 18x9.5 for the rear or should I even go offset? I would prefer to stay away from fender rolling or spacers if possible solely because of my lack of knowledge on the two and the fact that there aren't any reputable shops around here that I trust. I have the oem non brembos but maybe in the future would like to upgrade to an aftermarket big brake kit. Any advice would be great thanks.

Default Cosmis wheels

Go like 9.5 and 10.5 for width. Stance will look better. Bethere clearance too depending on offset you get

Thank you. How will that affect the handling opposed to stock? And any ideas on tire size don't really wanna run stretched tires

It'll handle better for sure. Tires for no stretch go like 265 or 275 front. Like 305 or 315 for rear. But watch sidewall size

Eventually I want to put coilovers on it maybe a slight drop but not too much would the 18's still support a taller tire with that going on? I just know I hate how my spec v rides with the low profile tires. I'm sure it could be more than that going on just kinda new to the whole suspension thing. Thanks again btw

I'm doing coils in the spring can't wait to drop mine. I have a slight stretch on my tires but the sidewall height is very important. Can mess up the car, learned that the hard way.
