Some Light-Weight JDM 5-Spoke Love

Enkei Kojin 18x8 ET32, 18x8.5 ET35

-My favourite 5-Spoke design
-Shaved 20lbs off from my WORK wheels
-Flush & Rub (Gotta put some negative camber on later)
-Way...WAY more easier to clean compare to my old wheels

Makes it look like you have a completely different car! Looks like you used your previous tires? As I'm sure you know, you can put stretched tires or more camber or a combo to get that setup to work. I like it! Those look even easier to clean than my 6 spoke Volks!

Yes u got sharp eyes, I used my old tires, and they are too fat, my shop suggest getting 215 & 245 combo, but my tires are less than a year old so I kinda wanna keep it first if negative camber works~

You should be able to adjust in enough rear camber to fit. I just had 1.3deg additional rear camber added on earch side to get my new bigger rear tires to fit. Up front you'll need camber plates to add significant camber. I guess pulling the pins might get you close.

The front just rubs very little so I hope it will fix it within the 0.5 range~

As soon as I fix my new rims setup, I'll wash them and put them up for sale~

Now that looks aggressive. Performance skirt ties it in really nicely.

I just purchased the same wheels except im going to run the 9.5" setup in the rear. did you run into any rubbing issues after adjusting the camber? Also looking to lower the car, what did you use for suspension because yours looks perfect fitment with the wheels.

Thanks for info car looks great !!

Geez...I miss my old car...

I ran 8.5 rear and the rubbing never got fix. Negative camber did not help, my tech suggest me to run thinner tires but I don't really wanted to... I ended up putting it on my mom's Z4, fits perfectly.

Thanks! That was the favourite part of my project, custom fitting the kerscher lip to the performance bumper! (it was actually quite straight forward)
