+1 to new wheels. don't waste your time with spacers. i was going to do spacers on mine but decided to just run on what i got now and get new ones later on with more aggressive stance.

not hatin' on spacers, but just thinking in the long term.. is it really worth it? plus i'd still be weary about how safe spacers really are.

but when it comes down to it, fitment wise, if you're going to do it, do it right? I learnt the hard way and bought rims without fully researching specs etc.

i've ran 5mm slip on for years now, and never had an issue, atm i run 22mm hubcentric spacers no problems..

unfortunately my car is 4x100 and low offset wheels are extremely hard to find (least the stuff that i like) i searched night and day on yahoo auctions to find my current rims which are 16x7 +35 (lowest offset they come in), yet they are still quite sunk... even with 22mm spacers they are only "just" flush..

in my scenario, low offset wheels are really limited to VIP style or 6UL/AXIS OS/BBS stuff which i'm not too much of a fan of..

with that being said i have friends who have ridiculously low offset rims and still run spacers on it :D

Stop giving rubbish advice and filling peoples threads up with crap about illegal spacers. WE GET YOUR POINT!!!

On an ON TOPIC note, Jeffy those wheels look alright, something of that style in 18's would look good in black. I like your thinking of getting the correct offset wheels.

If you want to go flush without spacers, you are going to have to stagger your offset or buy staggered rim widths or both.

I can say with confidence that if you get a 18x8" rim:

Front - +35 (you may get a tiny bit of poke)

Rear - +30 (you may fall a fraction short of flush), +25 will probably give you some poke

I run 18x8, +40 front and rear and I almost get flush with my fronts and the rear is still tucked away. However, if you run a F35/R30 combo and use superlow or coilovers you will need your rear guards rolled (definite) and you may need your fronts rolled as well.

You could buy a pair of 18x8.5 +40 and a pair of 18x9 +40 and you'd probably be more flush than a game of poker. However, I suspect (especially for the rear) you'd have strut/suspension fouling issues.

As much as I would love the flushness different offsets provide, it would make tyre rotation a biatch (unless you can afford to get them to take them off every time you rotate). There is one possible way to make things flush legally with same rim widths but I need to check some measurements and stuff first.

edit: If I were you, buy a set of 18x8" +35 and live with the fact your rears aren't flush.

Looking for concave rather than dish? Plenty on yahoo jap auctions.

We can test fit my wheels on your car to give you a rough idea how much less (or if your brave) more poke you will get and how much camber it will have

The gold rims could have worked ok if you slammed the car on coilovers, but if you're going for fitment, may as well offload them for something else.
