Not sure how active this thread is, but I'm looking at purchasing ESR sr08 wheels. Stocks in my opinion are nice, but I want something a little different. I need a second opinion and width and offset suggestions too. I'm thinking 18x8.5 +30mm. But they do offer 18x9.5 with a +15/+22/+35mm offset as well. Here is a little quick photoshop I did on my car as reference xD

18x9.5 with +35 or 30 will be a good fit gives you a better track fitment and improved handling

I couldn't share them because Photobucket was down for so long. Here some before I swapped my winter wheels and tires on. I love the look and they fit perfectly. I wouldn't want them to stick out anymore.

Oooh nice! I was also thinking of going team Enkei too with classic rpf1s, but it's nice to see more options. I love your style too, it's subtle and clean!

Thanks. I like these FD5 wheels a lot and I like wheels that have spokes that extend all the way to the rim of the wheel. This design makes the wheel appears bigger than it is. While I like the light weight of the RPF1 the spoke design makes it look a size smaller than it really is. People ask me if these are 18" wheels when they are 17" wheels.

Plus a lot of people have the RPF1 and I've never seen the FD5 on any other car so they are rare.

I'm not sure but they will stick out more than mine since yours will be 1.5" wider and 10mm greater offset. Those will extend an additional 29mm past where mine do which is a lot. Are you lowered or going to lower it? Also
keep in mind that 18" wheels do weigh more than 17" wheels so they will negatively affect the acceleration.
