Fast FC08 - New Wheels on the Market

Picked up some new wheels about a month back. Only about 1k shipped. Looks like they just started selling them in April. Not many wheels in our bolt pattern so i figured id share. I have seen people running the FC04 from this company just not any with these yet!

They poke pretty good, id say about 1/4 of an inch. No clearance issues, can go full lock either directions. unless you hit a big bump or are turning extremely hard they will rub the wheel wells for a second.

Im running 9.5s on all 4 corners with 275s. Grips like hell now and i think the car looks much better over OEM. Also vinyl wrapped all the chrome to black so i didnt have 2 metal colors on the car. I think it turned out to be a pretty good transformation, lemme know what ya think (pics attached: sorry theyre blurry, had to resize them down below 200KB so theyd post up)

They look great...

So a few things...how are they for brake clearance, what's their offset, and how much do they weigh?

I'm stealing the idea and will need to get myself at least one set of these for my race tires.

2007 2.4 Base
MagnaFlow dual outlet, quad tip exhaust test car
**Sold**

Max (#1547)
2007 TURBO 2.4
Too much to list here. See my Garage for details.

Brake clearance is superb, no issue for big brake kits.

Offset is a +38. Puts the inside of the wheel in the same location as the OEM wheels. All extra width is pushed outside away from car.

Weight is 21lbs a piece, they are flowformed alloy wheels so strength and weight are win wins.

Also since they are a canadian company they come with a coating that protects from road salt and harsh wintry conditions. Plus the finish looks excellent. If you want a better pic of the finish ill send an email with a high quality pic. the website pics dont do them justice, also on the website they look black but are bronze/dark copper.

Curious did you debate a staggered set up? Also is that vinyl wrap on the front fogs?

I did debate a staggered setup. I just wanted to be able to rotate tires, especially since the NT05's are more than 200 a piece in 275..

And yes it is vinyl wrap, i didnt want to have both bronze and chrome metal colors on the car when i swapped the wheels out so i wrapped all the chrome pieces.
