    Which rims are these?

    Hi All,

    Any idea which rims these are? And what the potential sizes/widths are on a S14a? With & Without arches rolled?

    They look like Cosmis XT-206Rs.

    Guessing it’s 18 x 9.5 et 12 and the arches would need rolling pulling with a roller

    I don't think they come in +12, +10 is the closest.

    Thank you. I emailed the US team and they directed me to the UK supplier https://www.vipmotorsport.co.uk/Shop...XT-206R-xt206r

    Bronze has gone but they have replaced it with hyper Bronze which looks good imo.

    17 x 8
    17 x 9
    18 * 9.5
    18 x 11

    17 or 18?
    I noticed some are running 17 fronts 18 rear, but thats more of a drift setup not fast road?

    18 x 9.5 all round? (Probably need slight roll on the arches?)
    Don't suppose 18 x 11 would fit the rear without arches.

    The 17/18 stagger is just a style, popular in the USA.

    VIP Motorsport are helpful guys, I buy my GKTech stuff through them as it's cheaper than getting it direct. They must have taken the Cosmis business from Driftworks, or Phil gave it up.

    My uneducated eye believes those to be 18" given how slim the tyre is.

    No chance of 11J without arch work. No real chance of 9.5J either without a roll if you don't want to have tractor ride height.

    Why are you buying knock off wheels for a car you live thousands of miles away from?

    Ahhh, this is the trap with keeping a car you love should have sold it haha.

    TBH I didnt know these are 'knock off' rims, I've been out the game for a few years now.
    Assuming they are a copy of a jap wheel? I just liked them in the picture I posted and thought I'd go for that

    Cosmis started as reps IIRC and now make some original designs, I don't know if this exact one is a copy of something however. I would save your money, like green_rs13 says you don't want to fettle with it in your own head.

    If you wanted 'proper' wheels of that sort of design, I'd go for the Enkei RPF1RS as it has the deep face

    I'm about to take set of those off mine for Works T7r to clean Alcon brakes, you might have to kill me for them though They can go in storage with the TE37's LOL

    Can buy the RPF1RS new bud, no dramas in sourcing them.

    Do you have RPF1 or RPF1RS?
