I doubt you'll have a lip like the ones in the pictures, i believe those wheels are wide and have a low offset. But those rims are still nice. Work and PIAA have wheels like them as well.

Actually.. the 19x8.5's have a 2.5" lip with a +45 offset. They design their wheels to have the maximum lip available to fit all aplications. If you look closely, you can hoow the spokes actually curve back in after the mounting point.. to give the illusion of a deep lip. Here's another shot:



Here's a link to a website that carries them: http://www.1010tires.com/wheel.asp?w...2D+Hyper+Black

I just noticed... they also make a 19x9.5" with a 48 offset.. if the fronts were 19x8.5" with +45 and rear was 19x9.5" +48 could we run staggared wheels on our cars? This might be cool...

Dammit.. I just used their wheel offset calculator.. and it looks like the rear wheels would stick out an extra 10mm Is that too much? I could be wrong, but I think that's less than a quarter inch ( 0.394" to be exact)? anyone know how close that would be to the fenderwall?

Yeah.. per wheel. I am getting them through my friend's shop for just under 1,000 shipped... then the tires are probably gonna run me another 400-500... so around 1,500 total. Not bad considering.

GLOSS BLACK no doubt, if thats your car i think they would go great kuz you got the silver/black theme going, and well it keeps going w/ gloss BLACK and non-black lip.

great choice either way tho

oh alright, i guess they're like the axis wheels then. I imagine the wheels won't clear big brake kits because of their design oh well.
About staggering your setup, please dont do that. The reason some cars have wider wheels/tires in the back is because they're rwd. Staggered fitmet on our cars just looks ridiculous. 9.5" wide wheels wont fit anyways.

I know why they stagger them on RWD cars.. just looks nice.. regardless of RWD or FWD... but anyways, it should clear big brake kits too.. check the website: http://www.sternwheels.com/

if they dont clear BBK's then thats whack because one good thing to do after getting bigger rims is a nice set of bigger/better brakes... and most nice RWD cars need BBK's...

Their website doesn't say anything about clearing bbk's. The reason I"m saying it might not clear bbk's is because of the spoke design. To get that max lip size the spokes have to bend back reducing the caliper clearance. But who knows, it may still fit.

I'm not sure.. I would e-mail them and ask... Once I get them, I can see how much clearance there will be with the OEM brakes.. and see if there is room for a big brake kit.

Yea, the biggest problem I believe is the size of a 4 piston caliper over our stock 2 piston calipers.
