Wheel Directory: Enkei Raijin 18x9.5 +45




Enkei Raijin's, 18x9.5 +45 squared with 255/35/18 Nitto NT555 all around. No rubbing, no clearance issues (yet!). I'm also running Cusco LCA with KW V1, lowered 1.5". Thanks to Ben at AJR for making this happen.

Just curious, what is your current camber setup? It seems that 18x9.5 runs the best for square setup, off course with correct offset and tires.

Sorry, I wish I was more technical with the details. I do know my mechanic doesn't follow factory specs.

These are my favorite enkei wheels right now, I wish they had them in a gold finish becuase I don't really want to paint/plastidip them. Looks amazing on both your cars.

I'm looking at the 18x9.5 +45 all around or 18x9.0 +44 all around. There's 5.4mm difference in the poke between the tow options.

Now you've had your setup for a while are you able to advise if you've had any rubbing issues etc. I'm lowered about 1.5" on TRD coilovers.

Not sure if its afer going the narrower wheels with 5.4mm less poke or the wider wheels with a little more stretch so the side walls are angled a bit to minimise rubbing risk.

Looking at the TWS T-66F wheels that cost HEAPS so need to make the right decision.

Your feedback on rubbing issues is really important so I'd appreciate it.

he stated that he has no rubbing issues. i had small rubbing issues with the back bumper, as stated by Jive. but that rubbed itself out so no rubbing anymore. im on 265's. if youre doing 255 youll be fine. if you wanna be conservative, go 18x9 with 255

Thanks for any feedback.
I'm planning on running a 18x9.5 +45 squared with 255/35/18 setup with TEIN coilovers. (and even the same car color and wheel color)

I see you are running coilovers, did you need spacers or anything to make it work?

If you are not sure if you have spacers, can you take a picture from where the wheel meets up with the brake rotors? a little on the side looking where the wheel and the brake rotors meet.

Can you please send me pictures of how the wheels are with the body? (are they a little in, flush with the body)

Been looking for rims and think I've found a perfect set for an FRS with TRD lowering springs. 18x8 seems to be the winner to me, I only have one question...

Are ANY of the Raijin colorways finished or coated? I live in the Northeast of USA and dont want another unfinished or uncoated rim. The corrosion and upkeep is too much for me daily this car if the rims cloud up every week
