I researched a lot of other users fitments. I don't rub and it's not a bad tire either. Once these tires are done, I will get some meatier, better quality tires.

1. Are you on stock suspension, if so any clearance issues?
2. Still have this car with these rims, if so any regrets or you love them?
3. Are these hyperblack or battleship grey?
4. Would you mind posting a pic like the 1st post but on a sunny day?

Thanks

I am looking to pickup a set soon.

Here I am on reps 18x9.5 with 225 tires stretched. If the OP likes it, then let OP experience stretched tires.

What's more important, impressing strangers on the internet with a name on a wheel, or working for your money and supporting yourself and family?
I know that my kids getting what they need beats out me buying $4000 wheels for an economy car that gets me to work.

Tbh I don't understand this attitude-- I work hard & support myself but I also only buy authentic parts, and I'm not doing it to impress anyone on the internet.

If I didn't have the money for the real deal I would just stay stock until I did. Obviously to each their own, but to me it's like wearing fake Gucci or Saint Laurent. You're not just paying for a name, you're also paying for craftsmanship and original design instead of a cheap copy. (And nobody is forcing you to wear designer clothes or run expensive wheels, it's a choice)

Personally I don't care if people run reps or not, do whatever makes you happy, but it's way off base to insinuate people aren't working hard for their money because they can afford authentic wheels.

My comment was more towards a guy that comes on and his only reply is a slam on rep wheels. He didn't have any input other than the guy needs to spend more money on his car.

I dont get the "reps" that people throw at ESR wheels. Do people even know that they make cast, flowformed and forged wheels? Im sure that cast wheels are going to be just that, cast wheels. But the company itself is not selling 25lbs rollers made in a chinese sweat factory at 25c per wheel costs...
