    Very nice. Polished all over I say. One of the biggest looks in japan and it was the same at the Sema show is every part of the wheel in bling. Works on a car that is white, black, grey....every bodycolour really.

    Also the bigger the polished lip then the better, so wider the better.

    I have just got my set of the grids in black chrome from you but you can defo stick me down for a set of these if they come in a polished effect all over.

    9.5 on the front !!!

    Thats going to ride like shite !

    Whats the smallest tire you could fit to that safely for track use ! 255/35 ?

    Surely 8.5 is more than adequate for a front wheel and 235/40

    Or are these wheels for show and not track ?

    This isn't making a huge amount of sense to me... do you mean you want thicker spokes, or bigger wheels or what?

    Either way, what you see is mostly what'll be made, with the possible change of the middle round the holes not being polished, and obviously other colours

    We might try this, but it's a limited market for such a wide wheel, we'd need to do a GB on them and pre-sell a load with a fairly long lead time tbh

    Everybody was just saying satin all over, then I say nonono, polished ftw, then it turns out I am not cool, and know nothing, then you want polished after all

    It'll come in the colour Julian listed back the way

    I am afraid that lots of people have 9.5s on front, lots of the drifters who punish their cars on track run a 225 on a 9.5... 235 is considered fairly conservative for them Yes you get a bit more tramlining etc, but it does look good!

    The 8.5 GTR will match these quite well and give a staggered dish but a very similar look, so will work well

    You know the number mate

    Offsets will be sensible, to allow maximum range of fitments for other cars, which would you like to see?

    Mine rides fine with 9.5 all round

    225/40/18

    8.5 is adequate bit would look shite

    They should be fine for show and track

    235's will go on a 9.5 no problems.

    I run 225's on mine, on the front with 9.5" and theres no problems, On the rear I run 225's on a 10" if thats all I have kicking about..

    If you want to run 8.5, these wheels as ben said, match up to the existing 8.5" GTR so you can run 8.5"/9.5" combo

    same, although I dunno how they'd look with a properly polished lip? the slightly 'low res' polishing in those pics makes them look a bit cheap IMO, like the lip on ultralites

    But if you're gonna be mainly doing solid colours you can't go wrong (especially black )

    You mean polish them up completely mirror?

    The problem with that you cant get laquer to stick too well, and to a general customer they dont last long with no laquer

    I had a feeling there'd be a good reason.

    Doesn't change how I view it though, to me pricey rims sparkle, cheap ones just shine a bit

    but as I said, there sounds like theres going to be plenty of better finishes anyway

    There's nothing to stop them being mirror polished mate... we could get it done here, we just couldn't then offer the same warranty on the finish as it wont last, never does
