Let start a new thread for this since mods will probably close the other one since its over 10k post

We all know that these are the cheapest and lightest wheel that money can buy :giggle:

From what I've seen in the old thread, these questions pretty much come up almost everyday... Feel free to add your input and I'll update the OP as much as I can. :giggle:

What fits?
Well, you can fit pretty much anything from 17x7.5 +45 to 17x9.5 +38. Would it be easy to fit the wider wheels with lower offset? Of course not! Need some fender modifications and of course camber. :giggle:
What size so its not the bubble face?
Anything that is 9 wide and up will have the concave/flat face look. Anything lower than that will be the bubble face.
What size are the SBC available?
SBC are available in half sizes.... 7.5, 8.5, 9.5 etc. It was also released in 17x9 +22 and 17x9 +45, 18x9 +35...

OEM Centercap Option

So I tried putting my OEM 08 FG2 center caps on my rpf1s.... the rears seem to fit PERFECTLY but the fronts dont seem to fit 100%...someone help!

BTW, i searched the forum already but can't seem to find a thread that answers it so if anyone has any quick answers it would be greatly appreciated :D
You need to sand the inside center of the front caps just a little to get them to fit. It's because of the axle bolt on the inside. There's a DIY or a thread about it somewhere
What Hub Centric Ring to use?

These are the ones you need: 73.1mm/64.1mm

Hub Centric Ring 73.1mm / 64.1mm
