Been offered some wheels.

Been offered some rims & tyres (for what I think is a good price). What do you lot think of these?

Please, no comments on how talented at Mircosoft Paint...I already know I have mad skills!

There 18's (even though they look like 20's in the photo! ) in Bronze & they have Imprezza/Evo fitment, like a 43 offset (but not 100% sure) so should give a 12mm poke out over the standard wheels.

This is the original photo of my car if anyone wants to improve on my above attempt

I like them. Are they the same colour as the photo or more bronze like?

personal opinion wouldbe too keep the rages but put some spacers on them to fill the arches width wise more.
i think 18s look swamped in the civics big arches

If they come out more than standard wheels wouldnt they be outside of the arches? which is an MOT fail I think...

You should buy them, then you can sell the Rages to me

The standard rages sit quite far into the arches, if you fit spacers you could bring them out to sit flush with the arches which is not a fail for MOT, its only is you protrude the arch.

I couldn't agree more, but with a 30mm drop I think 18's look alright

I'm going to keep the Rages as my 'summer wheels' and plan on using the 18's in the summer as a weekend track wheel and in the winter as a ...winter wheel.

I thought this was the case too, unitl Nat pointed out to me (at last years Mimms meet) how far back they actually sit. I think you could easily wack a 15-20mm spacer on there and would still sail through an MOT.

I'm going to try them on the car on Saturday morning. Friend is looking for £150 for them (but two of the four do require new tyres) & there a bit kurbed too. Still a deal? Or should I barter him down?

Thumbs up

pretty similar to the dotz gtrs i had on my civic before, just a different color, they are a wheel that suits a lot of cars, with the 43 offset they should sit alot nicer in the arches than the rages and should avoid any rubbings issues

The wheels I had on yesterday have got a 43 offset to give you an idea, do fill the arches better. Mine is also lowered on 15mm eibachs.

Wheels collected, but I can't fit them as I have an issue with my nuts:

No where near as nice as my Rages...but i think there alright, the added offset is nice, and the ride is a lot smoother
