Default Kosei K1 15x8 +32 at tire rack

Just in case someone was interested. I just ordered a set. Lugs were included for free. Talked to Nate @ x688. He states that there are 3~4 sets left in silver only.

my k1 16x8s are +32. I think these wheels look incredible with the deeper dish.

Shouldn't even with 16x8's depending on the tire overall diameter should be the same as teh 15x8's. I had already rolled mine from previous wheel/tire setup but you can just adjust your camber some to clear if need be. No biggy! I like the 15's but wish they would have had the 16's still (could have ran the 245/35/16 T1R).

Damn, these and the 6ULs are so tempting. I want to get rid of my 14x6 40 offset bad.

my sister put some 15" enkei rpf1 on her msm and it really livened up the car. I was surprised.

About the same! The K1's are a little heavier at 14lbs each where Emilio's are 12.8lbs. Offset on the K1 +32; Emilio's +40 or +20. So really depends on what style wheel you like. Emilio's wheels have a few more finishes and polished lips.

Other than the fact 225's suggested rim width would be 7.5 - (8.0) - 8.5 I found this on yokahama's website "A wider wheel will improve handling at the expense of ride quality, while a narrower wheel will improve ride quality at the expense of handling. ". I'll ask my boss tomarrow I remember him saying something about it the other day..wanna say it was something to do with the tire wanting to actually fold. I dunno though! I did the opposite though! I knew I wanted 15x8 with mid to low offset for the stance and new the 225's would fit.

From what I just searched they'll fit on 7 - 8.5" I guess stiffen the sidewall is an advantage...all in all they look good.
