Re: new tenzo type-m 18x8 45 offset

the ones on the accord tho are a slightly smaller offset than the ones on the q45... it needs to be slammed more tho

yeah i went with the 225/40/18 nitto neo gens i am really impressed with how well they hold my car and keep up with the 24mm progress rear sway bar

although i am now getting that itch to remove more wheel gap the diameter of the wheel is slightly smaller so it left a bit more wheel gap then stock setup did.

as for the q45 that offset and wheel size must be huge! Look how deep the rim folds back in to the hub and how wide that back tire is!!

I originally wanted these in the 37 offset (the only other practical option for the 18x8, also come in 25mm offset) but they only had them in charcoal and black and i was afraid they would be too dark. I was expecting the titanium finish to be a much lighter color than what i got, and thats why i got them with the 45 offset, so i am still trying to get used to the change in expectations but they are growing on me. Here is a guy that went with the 37 offset on his accord. He is also quite a bit lower.
18x8 black with 37 offset

on another note: thanks for the comments... all views and opinions are welcome

Re: new tenzo type-m 18x8 45 offset

lol...1fastj30a1 on v6p...


i like it when the "rim" sticks out past the fender but not the spokes...especially when the top of the rim is tucked or close to tucking.

needs a WW lip kit cause those are some aggressive rims for a non-lipped car...
