    You will be fine with these wheels with 205 or 215 for sure on stock suspension. 215/45/16 is very close to the od of stock tires plenty of people running 15x8 +35 pro race wheels like mine with no issue even dropped an inch or so. Same with 17x8 +38 pro race 1.2 and 17x8 +40 rota titans and grid and slipstreams on stock and lowered 1 inch or so. No question you'll be fine on stock suspension and even if you decide to drop an inch with eibach mountune or swift or one of the others in that range you should still be fine. I'm running 15x8 +35 wheels with very wide 195 bfg that are about the same height as stock tires too and they stick out 5mm more towards the outside than these +40 konig will and fitment is fine even if I decided to go with 225/45 tires I'd be ok...plenty of people running those even lowered. I have no worries at all about installing 1 inch drop swift spec r on my car...I have no doubt there will be no clearance issues plus others have run these wheels with those springs with no issues. 16x8 wouldn't be any diff fitment wise if you're staying close to stock outside diameter on tires like a 215/45/16 you may even encounter even less issue with them being +40 vs +35 40 is a more ideal offset for this car. Honestly these wheels are pretty much perfect in my eyes and I'll probably end up getting them and run summer rubber on them and use my 15s for winter. Then I'd have a nice looking better riding lightweight setup year round. Good luck

    I wish we could know for sure the exact date these are released. I'm ready to place the order but I'm not doing it without knowing when exactly they are being released

    According to long (I called them) suppliers will start to see shipments late feb-mid March. I already put my order in a couple weeks ago so hopefully I'll be in the first batch. I only paid $480 for all 4 shipped.

    Any issues with rubbing? That looks damn sexy.

    I had ordered from them before, I must have had credits or something that I earned. Looks like I got an additional $15 off from the $497.

    The other issue I'm having is, if I decide to run this wheel with 205's (which i do) the tire I really want is the Firehawk Indy's but it has such a narrow tread width (6.9") compared to say a BF Comp2 (8"). I know the BF would look perfect but I'm afraid that if i were to run the Firehawks, it would look pretty stretched.

    I wouldnt run the indys on these wheels. Too much stretch.

    And why would you want the firehawks? I currently have them on stock wheels and they are not as sticky as the stock bridgestones. I was sliding quite a bit on my last mountain run on them. Not good for extreme grip. They are a good daily driver tire though.

    If you want something similar to the indys run the G-FORCE SPORT COMP-2 - SIZE: 205/45ZR16. Its the same tread wear as the indys and about the same price and should perform equally.
