Looks good man, the finish looks very unique from everything else out there! What sizes did you go with?

The front is 19x9.5 the rear are 19x10.5. Thanks for the compliment the lips are actually real black chrome dipped as well as hardware, the faces are brushed with a smoke tint. These look really nice in the sun and pics don't do them any justice, I also went with mild concave faces to.

I'm lowered on BC Racing coils, as far as rubber I'm not sure possibly Nitto's, I have Nitto's 555rs on my CCW classics on my RX7.

A nice set of wheels. It's always nice to customize the lip, hardware, concavity, and face color. Looking forward to seeing them mounted. I really like the design of each spoke- very detailed and unique.

looking good. Those Nitto 555 G2s look frikn amazing. That looks like a very nice tread design. Looks like its all about dry grip. I am going to check those out tonight, Used to rock the first gen back in the day and they were great but got noisy when old. haha who cares when they only last 5k miles

I'm getting the same width rims but I'm afraid the 245/275 gonna still be a bit stretch on 9.5/10.5. I wanna run 255/285 but haven't decided yet. Plus mpss don't come in 285

Sell me those SP1's
What offset did you get for the new wheels?
And what are your current wheel and tire specs?

Jspecvtec the stretch will be pretty noticeable I'm running those on my current set and its those same specs as you listed. But not too bad of a stretch. Stance, my current specs on the SSR's are 19x9.5+16, 19x10.5+30. The new wheel offsets are +25 up front and +30 rear.
