I just ordered 4 custom built 17x9.5+17mm Work VS-KF with a black chrome centers. Should receive them in 6 weeks. I think this will be my final wheels for my GT-Four. These have always been my dream wheels.

I plan on running 245/35R17's but I have a set of 215/40R17 in my garage that are almost brand new that I'm going to burn off first. They have the same tread width as a set off 225's.
Here is what they look like now. They need the centers powder coated and the lip polished. They should be fully assembled by early next week.

What offset do you have on right now? Because it looks like pretty good fitment

Those in the picture were my 2nd set of wheels they were 17x8+31 and 17x8+25. I have 17x9+17 and 17x9+38 now. I plant to run wide body fenders in the front with the new wheels with a little more camber.

Oh Yeah it should look pretty sweet especially with the 215/40's you should get a nice stretch thats not too crazy, and it should also help with clearing the fenders.

Ahh Nice aggressive fitment i can;t wait to see the out come :pedobear:

Picked up my wheels today, after fighting with the courier for 3 days. Will have tires mounted on Monday.

looks like the tires are going to rub. u doing a camber adjustment? or something else?

Magnum

Yes I will be using dot 3 crash bolts. keep in mind that the wheel is in full droop. So there is a bit of positive camber.

Here we are. I planed to get wide body fender for the front so the fit will be the same as the rear when they are installed. As you can see the front poke out too much. Wide body fenders are 20mm wider so it should be perfect.

Looks damn good! With the new fenders up front you could tuck some tire if you'd like.
Well worth the investment I'm loving the stance, Congrats

Why are the wheels so wide? Looks like if you were going modify to accommodate wider you could have put wider tires on too. Is there a benefit to stretching the sidewall out that I'm not aware of?

He is going to run wider tires as soon as the tires he had extra are shot. Right now he is running 215/40 tires, as soon as the tread is through on those he is stepping up to 245/35. He stated that up there in one of the posts.

I don't like the stretched look personally, but I think with the right tire on there, and the widebody fenders, that is gonna look mean.

yeah, I didnt see where he said he was going with a wider tire eventually either, and I agree, the stretched look is so...hondahboi...to me. The wider tires and the widebody will look better for sure, but to me those wheels stick out too far anyway. I dont see how you are going to clear the fenders when the tires are the right width for the wheels.

The style however is sick.

Ah-hah, missed that but I see it now, that explains it!
