That looks great. I love the wheels and the way it sits on the road.

It would look nice with a fly eye kit on the back lights!

Slick !


That's cutting it close with the clearance.
Looks like you'll always need stretched tyres.

Fly-Eyes is very 'industrial' looking, looks great from a distance, but not that nice close up. Afriendof mine and I Fly-Eye'd his off-road Mitsibishi Delica and it looks great, but for a nice shiny road car I'd go with Lamin-X.

Are the Wheels with ET 30 and 35 from factory? I have a set of 17x8" wheels with ET 70 and 65 and I don't know exactly what ET to make a perfect fit.. Without rubbing fender or coilover - Is it possible go for ET 35 or 38 in the rear? Awesome wheels by the way!

Those high ET wheels sound like they are off a Porsche.

Of course, ET also depends on wheel width to get perfect fitment, but if you wanted the face of your wheel to be level or within the arch line, you'd need an ET of around 45 for an 8" wide rim.

Ok, thanks - It just made me consider if I had misunderstood something regarding the high ET Porsche wheels.. was just wondering how these 8" with low ET 30 could fit so well without spacer? I was planning on ET40 on 8" (with a 25mm adapter/spacer) but If what you say is correct - I should go for 20mm instead?

looks good but spacers could be a wise investment, 3mm isnt that muchclearance!
3mm is not much, but enough. ET35 is optimal. Inside and outside fits perfectly with 8x17 front. I drove it about 5000km without any problems.

Yes ET35 and ET 30 is from factory. I ordered this directly in England.

8x17 rims on the up!? ET35 front and ET30 rear looks perfect and fits perfectly.

Here are 2 images that better show the ET front and rear.
