    Sorry to bump this thread a bit, but you're running 9.5 inch wheels with a 275 on all 4 corners? I've fallen in love with Rotiform KPS wheels, but I've been extremely hesitant to run a 9.5 inch wheel, or anything larger than a 255 tire. Wheels have a 35mm offset, I dont plan on going any lower than what you already have.

    No issue of rub whether that be on the control arms or fenders?

    The rear rubbed. Not the front. The tire slightly hit the inner plastic of the fender. Fixed it with a heat gun. You going with a 35mm offset will most likely not experience this issue.

    Good to know. I might go with a 265 tire to play it safe regardless, depending on what options I have within my price range. Thanks for the info!

    I'm online shopping and it shows two hub options: 71.5mm or 73.1mm Hub. Which ones are yours (ours for the SHO)?

    The SHO should take a 63.4mm center bore, so either will work, but you'll need hub centric rings for either.

    Here's my setup I got installed today. It was a lot of fun at the tire shop with all the tire installers and customers gathered around my car. They were full of questions - "I thought they stopped making these years ago", "I bet she really moves", that sort of thing. They loved the staggered look, as do I. I have no plans to lower it. I just can't give up a quiet, smooth and compliant ride in this DD. I know how much better it would LOOK, but also don;t want it to ride like my son's Subie BRZ. In the photo you can also see how I blacked out the window trim. THAT was a nightmare. I think I'll take it all off and have a local shop do it, (same shop that did my grill and roof). So many bubbles, wrinkles and such. Good from far, but far from good. SHO 1.jpg 20190319_165237.jpg 20190319_165313.jpg 20190319_165355.jpg 20190319_174740.jpg

    I really like the stock rims, but these look great. Seems especially worth it losing 5lbs per wheel. Nicely done!
