Rims came from AmericanMuscle.com & Tires came from Tirerack.com. Both were fantastic to do business with!!

We are proud to introduce the second revolutionary wheel from our acclaimed VF/Series, the VFS-1, manufactured with advanced flow forming technology, a unique approach to wheel manufacturing. The flow forming process maintains the integrity of the design while improving grain-structure of the aluminum, creating a stronger, lighter, and thinner forged-like rim barrel. Flow forming is the answer to the market's demand for lightweight wheels that are more durable and enhance overall vehicle driving performance.
Somebody needs to clue this old guy what "concave" refers to when we're talking about wheels. All I know is what it takes to fit (or mostly fit) wide wheels. Beyond that, I haven't ever tried to describe the wheels.
Anyhoo, I do have an update . . .
Previous 3-season, autocross, and track day setup: 255/45-18 Goodyear Asymmetrics on 18 x 9.5 x ET+45 SVT/GT500 wheels.
New track day setup: 285/35-18 Michelin Pilot Super Sports on 18 x 11 Forgestar wheels (front and rear). The tread is entirely under the sheetmetal, but there isn't even 1mm of offset to spare on the strut side to tuck them in any further (I ended up making an 0.025" thick spacer - that's 1/40 inch, not a mis-type - to eliminate a rub).
'08 GT/5MT (mine)
'10 Subaru Legacy 2.5GT/6MT (hers)
'01 Maxima 20AE/5MT (spare, my occasional winter driver)
'95 626/V6/5MT (still in the family but not at this address)
