Wish I could get a Michelin PS2 in 285/40-18.

the 10" wide ears with 275 or 185+ wheels make the cars look SO much more aggressive.

Expected to be about 20 pounds in 19x9 (I have to run stock size) which looks to be a good solid 5+ less than stock, and I bet more but haven't yet weighed the stock rims w/o a tire.
Oh baby!! Beautiful wheels but $1000 a pop for 18x9.5? Wow! Are you planning to run those daily on PA roads Sam? ;-)

Let's just say that I can sell them for less than the list price... In fact they end up going for about the same as a set of CCW 1-piece wheels in the end. No, not cheap, but also not $4k a set.

I just look at the beating my cheap-o steeda ultralites have taken over the past two years and cringe at the thought of those works of art on my car. Not that I wouldn't love to have a set!

That's a common assumption, but I'll bet that it isn't exactly zero even if it is intended to be.

I'd love to see those Rota 9.5'' 44 offset on car. Thinking about a set myself but not sure of the 44 offset. Sounds about perfect.

The car is 3ft off the ground right now getting wired (looks like it’s jumping a downed bridge “Bandit” style). Maybe I will have it back on the ground and the hood back on it early next week. I’ll post some pics.
