Wheel color/fit on black coupe..

Im looking at getting some works emotion CR kai knock offs, rota torques for my black coupe.....The size is 18x8 with + 48 offset...I have searched endlessly, some say it will rub, some say it will not, im lowered 2 inches...Does any one know? Lastly, I wanted bronze, but no one has them, so its either gun metal or hyperblack....



Hyperblack





Gunmetal

I think either color would look good. I would say go Hyperblack tho. I would personally get a rim with a lip but thats just me

yes, RSV was on the list, but my problem is I dont like a polished lip...Just not my thing I guess.....And this one is lighter than the tenzo dc-5 so it wins in that department, but the color was the let down, I so wanted bronze....I think im leaning towards hyperblack... still undecided. anyone else? Thanks guys!

With a 48 offset I think you will be alright, but the width is what concerns me. I have 18x7.5 with a 48 offset and I don't rub, but the width of my wheels is still half an inch less than the ones you were looking into. I think for the most part you will be fine, but when cornering hard you will rub.

As for color, they both look pretty cool so just choose one.

according to the offset calculator and 8 inch wide wheel will have 6mm less clearance inside, and stick out 6mm more....So it not that much.....I think ill give it a try, I willl probably have to roll my fenders anyway.

ewww bronze on black coupe = gross! I like the hyperblack better than the gunmetal. I'd say go with silver wheels though. you can't ever really go wrong with a silver wheel, plus our gen has the silver/chrome accented windows and silver wheels look super clean and match well. look into enkei zr-1 or rsv in silver. both those wheels are nice.

rsv





zr-1



(hyperblack but look silver)

wow. you're nice. actually I get compliments on my silver wheels by girls all the time, and I don't even like my wheels. I'd get the second ones I showed, the enkei zr-1s if I had the money. without the chrome lip, gunmetal wheels just look dirty, so definitely go with the hyperblack if you're only considering those two. what wheel is that anyway? just curious. oh and btw if you need wheels to get girls, you've got no game then. hahahha at least I didn't say get chrome, right? enough said.

So are you able to find a source for the Rota Torque? They are too hard to get a hold of nowadays

I say get one of those wheels and paint it bronze...polished lip is okay, but I see it on almost everyone's car..and that style lasted like 1-2 years...check out my car if you want to see a black car with bronze wheels on a coupe, and I had polished lips on the wheels but i just painted it bronze...gunmetal looks great also, but I realized that for such a dark colored car, polished/silver rims stand out a lot...and sometimes they look really stock.

BTW, my wheels are 17x7 with a 48 offset...they rub cause i'm kinda low...

If you want bronze, just powdercoat them. The black would look sweet, though!
