All 17x9.5 are sold, still have one set of four 17x9 rims.
I'm re-ordering now, so if you will be ready to buy around January PM me to get your name on the list.

It may be necessary to go to a very low-profile and narrow tyre like 215/40 to make the 9.0s fit


Might be a fair bit of tyre stretch on the wall, I'd be interested to know if that size tyre fits? I've got a 17x8.5 front and I've put a 225x45 tyre on which was a little stretched but still worked nicely, they had to go through a few different brands in the same size before they found one that fit on the rim.

Sulio:
I know 215s will go on an 8.5 rim.  I fitted 18x8.5s with 235x40s on the front of my 200ZR but I had a tyre rubbing problem. So I ended up fitting 215x35x18 - Nexen 3000s. No sidewall to speak of, but they went on!  I guess anything is possible.

The ride is a bit hard, but not uncomfortable. Tracks like a demon.

Before I fit the new 17s on the blue beast I'll measure everything twice!

Rgds, Wal.

16x8s should be in some time in January.
I would suggest 195/55 or 205/55 front and 225/50 rear if you have 16x7 front and 16x8 rear.

Certainly is good pricing considering you don't have to piss fart around with customs and deal with oversea's sellers.

Good to see. Only if these were around a few years ago at this price.

Hey Guys!

Does anyone in SA have a set of these in 16x8?

I need to see if they will clear my new brakes.

Beer for anyone that would let me borrow one for a few hours.
