Dude if they have in 16 X 8 in +15 why didn't you go for that ish?

More tire sizes available with lower side wall, wider stance and wider tread. Granted 16 is generally a little large, but if you've got the power to move em.

in a week or two, i should have my car nice and ready for a photoshoot

those wheels are too big in diameter IMO for an NA. NA looks best with 15s.
an NB has really nice curves, and its possible to run 16s while still looking nice.

i still run 15s on my NB though haha

good choice on an offset. it will sit nice and tuck under without severe pulling or rubbing like most people have to with 0 offset. now lower that thing.
