I guess for track but wouldn't really use for street, it's ugly without some concave. The wheels are top notch though. Good find though.

Nice find. The dual-drill bugs me though, especially when they say it's designed specifically for this platform.

What offset are the ones listed? They don't look like the ordinary 17x9...

I swore they weren't as flat faced... probably mistaken them with their 17x9.5 +30.

Ya that design just is very dry in a flat face is all. At least more options however so that's cool.

Here's link for anyone without google foo...

Damn, wish they had some concavity, but 17x9, 17.8 lbs., flow formed mesh Motosport style wheel. I'd rock it. I'm boring old school though.



Reminds me of this with the special Suby WRX BBS wheels. Although the apex 9" width makes it even better.

RPF1 is lighter and they are same price! They look completely different, though.
