18" White JDM Drift Alloys

Right, so I'm in love with these:



I need a set of 18's in my life but I'm wondering what's the largest I can go sticking with 18's?

18x8 on the front and 18x8.5 on the rear? is this possible?

Any expert wheel based knowledge would be greatly appreciated.

:)

I do want this but the rear could go wider as the wheels tend to sit within the arch more than the front so I would like a wider stance at the rear.

You can buy in single double etc, I'm just looking at the options for the rear.

Looks like I'll be putting spacers on the rear.

Nice looking wheels but they are a complete rip off of the Rays VOLK TE37's:

The 'RAVS Engineering' sticker is a bit cringe worthy when the genuine wheels say 'RAYS Engineering', it's like having a fake Mugen spoiler and the badge saying Muwgen.

In general I think those particular wheels would cheapen the overall appearance of your car especially as you've spent a lot of money on decent parts. Rota produce replica JDM wheels and they sell a set in the TE37 style but they don't fit stupid stickers and I believe they are lighter than the Inovit's as well.

@coleo I want this style, must be the drift scene influence I love so much. A bit of a novice when it comes to wheels as I'm more a performance guy and not a fan of sticking plastic on, fixing lights and generally spending money on stuff that doesn't have a purpose. But I love this style rim so it's the Volks you say? I don't want to settle for something that visually looks like a copy, I'd rather have the genuine part.

These are the wheels I want too hands off :p
I'm going to get them in bronze, just trying to decide on tyres Yokohama parada 2 looks good but I've heard they are terrible in the wet.
Here is a picture of them in bronze http://www.civinfo.com/forum/modification-projects/65577-toms-nhb-ctr-gt.html#post1049666

Out of interest does anyone know how much a stock FN2 wheel weighs 8kg sounds light but I don't know what to compare it with. :S
