new wheel/tire set up

welp i just thought id share.

wheels are RH evo J5's. got them for $650 new and they used to be like $500 each. there no longer in business so...

18x8.5 +44. i was told 18.9 lbs which is 4.4 lbs lighter than OEM but i dont have a scale to confirm. they came gold but i had them powder coated for $35 each to flat black.








i went with Continental DW's 245/35/18 which is 3 lbs lighter than OEM!

man there thin! getting mounted tomorrow. ill report back if i need to role the fenders. i found a guy with Epic springs so 1" lower with same setup and he said he didnt have to do anything but an alignment because of the springs.

thin!

That's the only downside to buying just 4 rims.... Potholes.

Looks nice...

ok so i had to mount them in winter for a few days because i sold my 17" ws-60's and selling my OEM wheels. new setup looks almost the same because i powder coated them black as well and there the same weight also 18" but only 7.5" wide with a 215/40 tire. anywho heres the summers for only a day or two at most i hope.







heres my new winters
