Ordered a set in light grey and should have them today. I'll post pics once I get them mounted and whatnot. Went with 17x8's.

Nice! Very curious to see how concave the 17x8 is.

like the look of em for sure. Been wanting gramlight 57DR's since I decided I wanted to buy this car 3 years ago, but couldn't justify spending the cash on them. Got these wheels and the tires I wanted for the same price the 57DR's woulda cost alone, plus I'd have to go up another size to 17x9 meaning tires would be more as well. These are close enough to the look I wanted. Think they look great, just need to get an alignment done this week sometime.

Nice, I was looking at 57DRs as well, but I also don't want to go over 17X8. Te37 come in that size but are so damn expensive. I'm glad you like them! I might just pull the trigger on a black set.

I believe it's just shy of an inch. I didn't measure them before or after, but I believe what I've read on here it's like .8 of an inch? Little more stiff ride however.

I'm probably going to end up getting these in 17x9. I would mainly use them for autocross, but I wonder how they would hold up on track as well.

These and Varrstoens are some of the worst attempts I've seen actually.

Spoke and face designs are wrong, and no TE comes with additional openings in the face around the hub. Varrstoen uses the 19" face on all their wheels, but the proportions are off. Rota is another discussion, as they just took the wheel and made them as concave as possible to where now they look completely retarded.

But whatever
