You might have trouble finding a street tire any wider than a 255 in a 17" wheel.

Yeah, I'd definitely buy a couple sets of 17x9 wheels. One for 245 or 255 streeties and slap some 275 ho-ho's on the other and I'd be a happy camper. It's a little less rubber than my original plan of 285's on custom 18x10's but it'd be about a quarter of the cost, lol.

I would be interested in a set of the 17x8 in:

1) silver
2) anthracite
3) satin black

I would most likely run 215/40 to avoid fitment issues.

Nah, plenty of street tires to choose from in 275 widths.

I enquired on your site a few weeks ago about these, good to see it's moving

I'm interested in:
  1. Anthracite
  2. Satin Black
  3. Race Silver
Would be running 215/40 front and 235/40 rear.

Hoping these will fit Porsche Boxster brakes under them (4 pot Brembo I believe).

The USD to AUD conversion is rubbish at the moment, but hopefully will have picked up by the time the money is required.

What's the reasoning for the et25? I have always wanted to see a lower offset ARC-8 with a more concave face for 4-lug E30's.

This would be nice. I'd love to see a more concave look on an e30


17x8
1. Gold color (may look like shit, maybe someone could photoshop that?)
2. Race silver

+1 for interest. I like how apex clearly states they will make 17x8 and everyone chimes in with their own personal preference on size. So since everyone else did it I want a more concave wheel as well, then I'd be all over this, 17x8 is fine in anthracite

How much concavity are we looking at here with a 17x9?
