  • Question about new wheels....

    This is a photoshop of the new wheels im thinking about buying.


    The problem i have is the standard wheel fitment size is
    8x18"
    These Dotz Hanzo wheels only come in 8.5x18". Has anyone fitted wheels of this size to a vxr ??
    Do they fit properly, or will they end up rubbing on the arch ?

    As these are a special order item from Germany the guy in the shop said they would probably not accept a return after they have been put onto the car.

    I think they look stunning and hope the size won't cause a problem but i would really like to know for diffinate before i buy them.

    Not sure what you are paying inc shipping from Germany but £795 from here inc. budget tyres and locking wheel nuts,

    8.5" isn't an issue in itself but you will need the offset for starters too

      the offset is the same as the 1.2's i was looking at, so i presume that would be fine. I have been offered the wheels without tyres as my tyres are almost new for £500

          hmmm, according to Dotz, it is a 35 offset, the same as the 1.2's. Did you get the correct offset wheel Dtox ??

          The wheel size im looking at states;

          8.5x18
          5x110 stud pattern
          et35 offset

          Now as the offset is the same as the 1.2's and Dap's Revolutions(i think) so the only concern i have is if the 8.5 width will cause rubbing on the arch.

            In case anyone else is interested in these wheels, they do fit and look spot on aswell.
            I will post up some pics when the rain stops and i can finally wash the car
