However, changing from original springs to lowering springs can affect how frequently something rubs and how hard something rubs if it does rub with original springs.
So if it doesn't rub with the stock springs then it shouldn't rub with the lowering springs. Good to know. I had heard that lowering can change the min/max offset that the car can handle but your explanation makes a lot more sense.

The extremes are typically dictated by the geometry of the dampers and bump stops, not springs. When you press the wheel into the car with a few tons of force, or pull it out, the spring doesn't really matter anymore

Anyone have a silver car with the station bronze. I am eyeing these wheels and want to go bold but not sure it's gonna work. Next choice I know will look good is the anthracite color. But it's not bold.

This is the first production run for the new 17x9" ET35, so there aren't any in the wild just yet. The wheels will look exactly the same as the existing 17x9" ET42 ARC-8, only they will sit 7mm closer to the front and rear fenders resulting in a slightly more aggressive fitment with added front strut clearance. Both being 9" wheels, tires will be supported exactly the same.

We look forward to sharing images once available

So they look exactly the same as et42's with a 7mm spacer?
Whispering: Not concave?

That is correct. Unfortunately the ARC-8 cannot have a concave face profile in these 86/BRZ specs and still clear brakes.

Our forged EC-7R has a good amount of concavity to it while still clearing the PP Brembo brakes as well as many other aftermakret BBK's.

Curious if it was possible to utilize those extra 7 mm of brake clearance and get the face profile slightly concave?
Naively, a rectangle spoke could be turned into a bit of a parallelogram...
But I understand that it's not that simple to design wheels that are still light and strong.

Either way, it's great to see that ARC-8s are now available with two different offsets!

I switched my offset today to the 35mm offset just to give myself some extra clearance
