225 on a 9.5 is probably the craziest youll have to go,

the rim might poke a lil with the stock height, the natural negative camber from lowering your car would fix that

Just a fair warning XXR is currently having horribly distribution issues with the 527s. They had way to many preorders and so far the first 3 shipments coming out of the factory have been sucked up by pre order people. Wait time for a set right now is like mid June

Well they shouldn't be for such a "premium" wheel.

Someone needs to Photochop these wheels on an SC...I kinda dig the look! I was checking out the 8.75" wide ones at 35mm offset to get close to the 40mm I have in my 8.5" front wheels. Unfortunately the place I checked for 9.75" rears just had the 20mm offset, where I'd wanna keep it up around 40 like the rear 9.5" wheels I've got.

I bet the black chromeish ones would look hot on my spruce silver 400 >: )
