    Default New wheels time

    Well I've discovered my BK's wheels - Enkei RPF1 18x7.5+48 in Silver may be up for replacement. Probably can be reconditioned but have a newly discovered crack (that isn't leaking) and was already considering reconditioning two - one for rash and one with trivial - barely measurable - flat spot. Since I might be up for reconditioning three, and two have been reconditioned once before, think it might be time to replace. I can't get Silver RPF1 in this size from AU suppliers - I'd have to import myself which looks set to cost more than replacement wheels from AU sources so...

    Also have a BL with stock wheels. Considering swaps between the vehicles and coating the BL wheels white to go with the aurora blue BK. Or maybe going something just for the BK but leaning towards wheels for the BL and hand me down OEMs to the BK. BL is red series2 with black OEM wheels....Short listed choices:

    ENKEI TS9 18x8 +50 5-114.3 Black
    TS9 18x8+50 black to fit to BL shod with 225/40 or 235/40 R18

    ENKEI TS10 18x8 +50 5-114.3 Black
    TS10 18x8+50 black to fit BL shod with 225/40 or 235/40 R18 - These are my current favorite, leaning towards this.

    ENKEI RAIJIN 18x8 +45 5-114.3 MatteBlack
    RAIJIN 18x8+45 in black to fit BL shod with 235/40 R18 - Not keen on offsets < +48 for the BL due to probability of fitment issues such as rubbing

    Interested in seeing some of these sizes as fitted, gauging BL fitment, likelyhood of guard rolling etc being needed, and hearing suggests for other manufacturers. Haven't found another manufacturer I like styles from just yet.

    Ended up picking SSR GTX-01 : none of the above! Going to be an interesting fitment.

    $ = 1680 + fitment parts (hubrings, centercaps) + shipping = $2000
    weight = 8.9Kg ea which is a little over 1Kg more than the ultra-light Enkei RPF1 they are replacing on this vehicle.

    I've decided to hand the RPF1 down to the BL after reconditioning. Will have the RPF1 recoated white.
