Post up pics of your big offset wheels. I just bought an 07 LX 4dr and was wondering if anyone has done this on the 8th gen yet.

Thanks!

Im running a 17x9 all around with +40 offsets. Rubbing is an issue sometimes.

I am running a 18x9 35mm offset. Let me tell you it is flush as it gets. I have the eibach lowering kit and I had all kinds of rubbing issues. So I took a 3lb sludge hammer to the inside of the fender to make it nice and smooth, that got rid of most of the rubbing.

We run the same wheels in 17x8 (45 offset) on both of our 8th gen touring cars. Not quite as cool as Mugen kid's 9's though...

Love the pics, looks like a lot of fun!!

You're pretty low though, right?
Im running the Tein Springs.

9" width is his issue - the rpf1's look unreal though so its worth it :D
Yes 9" isnt the proper size for this car, but like you said its well worth it.:thumb:

To the OP, I think you are referring to Low offsets, not big offsets.

Lower offset = Wheel is pushed further out/ larger lip

Higher Offset = Wheel is more sunken in wheel well / less lip and typically more brake clearance.
