Wheel Directory: Enkei RPF1 17x9.0 +35



Hey guys, managed to track down a set of these 17x9 +35 RPF1 locally and put them on last week. The tires are 225/45/17 hankook V12 ventus (pure street tire, I'll not be tracking this car for at least a few months as I've got a track prepped M3 already. The car is lowered ~20mm all around with the Ground Control coilover sleeve kit (375lb front and 440lb rear springs) with the OEM 14mm camber bolts up front.

Let me know if you have any questions or comments!











Bonus shot of the M3.

I love rpf1's but would really like them in 18s. 17s are still nice though.

That. Is perfection. Period.

Those things really DO look good on anything! Amazing fitment too!

Looks great. I am looking to get a set of wheels with the same specifications. how much camber are you running front and rear? Any issues with rubbing? Will you be able to fit 235/40/17 inch tires and lower it another 10 - 15mm?
Thanks

Agreed. 17x9 +35 is sheer perfection!!!

To the OP: I like your taste. This is my ideal choice, except with 245/40R17 (how do you think that size would fit?)

Thank you for not slamming the car to the ground. It's nice to see that there is still space between the tire and fender. It looks damn near perfect.

Crap Crap Crap Crap Crap!!! I cant run this as my track setup since im upgrading my brakes and it seems as if you have no clearance for a bigger caliper. Even the stock front one is about to touch the spokes. Could you take a picture of the front caliper close to the spoke please i may have to stick to my +45 17x8's or just go wider with a higher offset, i dunno im an idiot when it comes to wheel specs.
