Default just looking for opinions/advise on these XXR 527

Iíve done all my research and used the search button for all my questions. But NOW I just want to hear other peoples opinions, advise, or whatever about these wheels. Only thing I donít need to hear about is the fact that they are a ďcheapĒ rim, I only have so much money so these will do for now.


details- XXR 527 18x9.75 +20mm

what kind of tires would you run, how big, etc.?
im guessing Iíll need rolled fenders with such a low offset, correct?
any other advise or opinions about ride quality, rolled fenders, offset, etc etc etc, would be appreciated. Thanks

these will be perfect in the fronts and rear, flush wise I mean

you will need to stretch tires and roll fenders to get these to fit

as for tire size u could run the same size tire for the front and rears something like 245/35/18, 235/40/18, 225/40/18 would look nice or run a stagard tire setup

I like em. Make sure your fitment is on point. 9.5 +20mm is on the right path.

I think they are pretty nice as well.

Ive heard a few people knocking the xxr's for some reason but so far i havent seen any reason as to why.

Personally I like a deep dish rim but these ones are still nice.

Good luck and hope to see them on yoru car when your done.

another thing that might effect if i need my fenders rolled or not is lowering springs, or coilovers (eventually), right? with the stock suspension for now, do you think ill still need rolled fenders?

deff not need to roll fenders unless you go low

but might as well buy tires that are 225/40 front and 245/40 rear for when you go low.

yea, i was planning something along those lines. hopefully it doesnt look too lame without the drop for now. i think the offset will be nice enough for me to handle how high my car will still look.

Looking at them for my Supra since they are dirt cheap... dont like the multiple pattern for the lugs, but thats what makes them cheap.
