Installed (no teasers):







Specs

FM-8, brushed center with chrome lips
19x8.5 front, +40 offset, 1.5" lip
19x9 rear, +40 offset, 3" lip
Custom fastener setup (fasteners at spokes only)
TPMS compatible and hubcentric

TIRES-- Michelin Pilot Sport PS2

MAJOR PROPS TO JANOY AT ISS FOR THIS ONE

I can finally announce that:

ISS forged will be introducing a new wheel, and their first set will be making it to a member of the CL community!!!

The wheels are going to be FM-8..... it's the FM-10 wheel but with a mesh 8 instead of mesh 10 design, as shown in the rendering above.

I can't wait till I get them. Should be here round Thanksgiving if all goes well

Again, major thanks to Janoy for getting these produced for me He is the man. He listened to all of my questions and concerns and is definitely knowledgeable in his business. A++++ so far.

Also, major thanks to mdgrwl, who unintentionally got me to contact ISSforged

LOL. I've got some other plans for lowering....probably f-sport springs

For those wondering, here's what the setup will be:

FM-8, brushed center with chrome lips
19x8.5 front, +40 offset, 1.5" lip
19x9 rear, +40 offset, 3" lip
Custom fastener setup (fasteners at spokes only)
TPMS compatible and hubcentric

TIRES-- Michelin Pilot Sport PS2
225/35/19 front
265/35/19 rear


Please don't flame on the offsets/widths. I know it won't sit hella flush and all that, but I was going for a specific look for my application. Also, keep in mind that the ISC doesn't have a rear fender flare that's as pronounced as the sedan, so wheels sticking out may not look right.

Also, I wanted something close to the F-sports as I knew they would work with future suspension mods with no problem, and I didn't want to sacrifice rear tire width.

I hear you. I'm impatient just waiting a week for something to ship from CA. But, relatively the wait isn't bad. Anything from Volk, etc probably would have been around Xmas.

Thanks Joseph. I wish I still had you as my evil twin, but no worries---> the LX-mode handles fit and look great on the vert
