These just came in from Wheelfire. Mounted on Hankook Ventus V12 EVO2's. Wheel stud conversion kit should be in today. It looks like they should clear everything but there's a local shop that can does fender rolling. Will post more pics later.

Nice. It's gonna be tighter than you think. But will look great once you get it worked out.

Thanks. It looks like it may be tight too... but I should be able to avoid a fender roll. I'll definitely post pics when I get to that point. I thought I'd be there today haha!

Today I had an issue with getting the lugs seated. It appears they're too wide for the wheel holes. Any ideas what to do here? A longer stud bolt... or a different type of lug, like something more narrow? See the pics below. Not sure the best way to go with this.

Forgot to add this earlier:
*Front tires: 225/40/18
*Rear Tires: 255/35/18

Thanks to the guys @ Wheelfire for hooking me up with the tuner lugs. Perfect fit.

I was able to get the wheels on. They fit, as Wheelfire promised with any rubbing or scraping. I've only driven around the block, top speed about 45, so I may need to go over more bumps and turns to see. The air pressure isn't correct yet either. Once I get some air in them and drive on them for a few days I'll report back. More pics below.

There's definitely some poke in the rear. Still no rub.

They look good but I would bet money that once your suspension settles back down those are gonna rub HARD on bumps and highway dips.

I did get a few rubs on hard bumps at higher speeds in the front.. and a rub in the front when going "faster" over parking lot speed bumps.

Overall... HUGE difference. I can only imagine how the MPS4's feel. Much softer ride.. the run-flats were just to harsh for DC/MD streets. The have way more give.. and just enough without feeling sloshy. Grip is incredibly better.. the car is a lot more planted and rolls with way better ease. Noise level is like night and day. No more road noise cruising @ 35-50 mph.

Changing the tires and wheel out these were a lot lighter. I'm sure this contributes to the overall feel too. Definitely glad I went with these!
