Almost found the perfect wheels...

Bolted them on, drove 1 foot... crunch.. the front left rubs the caliper. Sanded the porsche lettering down a bit and its fine. BUT around the slightest turns the front rubs the fender at the top. :( Stock offset if 60mm, these are 46mm with 235s instead of 225.

BTW these are our track package with BF Goodrich R1s.

Too bad, maybe more negative camber will fix the rub. Gotta wait and see. Sucks, the look friggin awesome on the car.

they DO look great.

more camber it is! :) try -2.0 degrees and see if that helps the rubbing.

you're definitely going to have to come up with something else that'll give that caliper more clearance. Measure the other wheels to see what the story is.

jesus those are perfect...

They do look awesome, but they aren't CF. They ARE heavy as shit though.

Problem is the offset is wack. Fenders are rolled from the factory, currently the lip is about 4-5mm wide. Spacers will make them rub even more. I think -2.5 camber is the solution :D Gotta get an alignment anyway once the new a arms go in.

These wheels are definetely heavier than the stockers. I can hear the power steering struggling to move them. On the road the steering is noticeably heavier than before, the car is a bit harder to drive.

Anyone have 17x8 wheels with a 60mm offset with a porsche lug pattern? :confused:

no, but feel free to enjoy my 14x6 and 14x7 Toyota OEM rims with a Ford Bolt pattern.
