What is the ET of 8j x 18 compomotive wheel for an evo 6

is it the same as the oz 17 inch ET 37

The tires are they 225/40/18 or 235/40/18 or 235/35/18 what comes most close to the 225/45/17

Maxi what are you thinking about going for, I have tried loads of places but they say it is a nightmare getting wheels to fit the E6

Just a quick note to say that although that link to the tyresize program should still work (fingers crossed!) I've just finished moving my site off Geocities (whew!) and onto a more reliable server.

The site is now at http://www.ptooi.com/

why a nightmare mad_evo

just order the ones you want compomotive can do all kinds of offset values 1 to 60 or even more

so it will fit

True Maxi, but thats the problem. It's so limited to wheel design about the only wheel compomotive do in an 18 is the MO and then there is the Raceline RL. These wheels are ok but are a bit dated now, the other choice I have seen is the Blitz wheel, but at £500 a pop they are a bit costly. Well hope you get a good set for your car

Why don;t you guys check ou Volk Racing / Ray Engineering? Takakaira has them in stock, and they are just so functionally beautiful! Super lightweight too! http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/happy1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >

My recommended models are:

TE37
Daytona Challenge
SE 37 Kawagata

Or check out www.mackin-racing.com to see the designs. I love them, but are just too plain expensive! |EQU|(

Saw the picture of it fitted on a blue E6! The 19 I believe?! Awe-inspiring!!! [img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/happy1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >

I want to go for 18 wheels soon,but ther are many nice wheels that are not avaible for the evo.
I'm looking especially at rally style wheels and want them to be light. On some previous cars I bought some heavy wheels,like antera and the difference in acceleration was there!!!

O.Z don't have,that's what they say,any 18 wheel that would fit the evo,that's really bad as there are many nice ones(superleggera,superturismo,chrono evolution,f1 cup).

But if you go to their american web site www.ozwheels.com,you can see that all the wheels are avaible in 8x18,5x114,3!!!
And they als have the superturismo in white and the f1 cup in white,both avaible in 18 inches!
But if you want them you have to order them from us,325$ each one for a 18 F1 cu corsa in white.

SPEEDLINE has some nice rims too that are avaible for the evo,the newes is the 2120 turini avaible in white silver and gold,or the 2021 that is almost the same one but in magnesium so lighter but more expensive.the 2120 weight is around 10 or 11kg for the 18,and the 2021 is around 7 or 8 kg!

The lightest wheels are a really good thing as they are non suspended weight!

Then you have all the Japanese good and expensive stuff,advan,enkei,volk racing.
You can have the tommi replicas(the 5 spoke or the ten spoke)but only in 17 inches and they cost as much as a good 18! www.enkei.co.jp

Maxi P,

I have white alloys on my white Evo4 RS and they look stunning, though I'm thinking of changing the color again soon, maybe to bronze / copper / gold or gun-metal greay / anthracite to giev the car a new look!

Red car with white alloys is great, and so is red car with copper / bronze / gold alloys!

My car has the white 18in GT1's on the home page.

They are lighter than the original 17in ones and are top quality.

I will post the details of the Speedline dealer tonight, he knows his stuff and exports all over the world, especially Asia.

The wheels require no spacer, are made specifically for the Evo, use the original wheel studs and come in silver, black, white, gold and anthrasite.

Stick with your existing wheel's with widest tyre ,and save or invest in getting the engine sorted ,I have realised that all the cosmetics can never make a good looker better looking .
But it can make A bad performer ,perform better.

Lowering each wheel's weight by 6 or 7 pounds is probably as good as gaining 30 bhp and a little torque, except you dont stresss the engine; in fact, you do exactly the opposite!
