‘Plane??!?

Mine came by boat. ☹️ Hence the 10 week lead time. 

Mine were coming by boat as well as i paid the £30 delivery charge and not the £300 for airfreight.

bc took longer to make them than expected so i got upgraded for free so they hit their timescales 😁

I love those wheels, but they are wide! Wonder what offset he is running?

I went for 8x17 and 10x18 for my exige cup R with slightly more aggressive offsets than recommended

They were delivered in around 4 weeks with good communication and updates

What offsets did you go with?

What size tyres are you running? Any rubbing?

I went for 8x17 ET24 (1mm more out than usual) and 10x18 ET30 (2mm more out compared to the oem 3800 cup)

Not a big difference from recommended but the reason was also to get some more inner space at the rear if running more camber and because the ohlins ttx springs I use are slightly bigger compared to the oem cup r springs

I did not fit the wheels yet as my car is actually at the workshop for some mods and servicing

@Maxi_z Have you fitted your new wheels yet and did they fit OK with no rubbing?  Please post pictures!  Thanks

same question to @Maxi_z.

I'm keen to see how yours look as I've been tentatively looking at forged wheels recently, but can't decide on a style (that's not 7KEUR HRE wheels!).
