    I stand corrected. That is cool. Very promising.

    yes, thats them. but the recommended sizes for the 3 and 6 is weak, hence they wont give you the option for anything wider.

    check out the width and offset of the front wheel in the rx8 link i posted. i think you might like that a tad better (19" variant)

    19x8.5
    45mm offset.
    Bolt pattern 5-114.
    Tyre size 225/40-19 ??? Surely a 245 would work ok. I'm running 235/40-18 now.

    So those are for the fronts. You're saying he's used rears (Im still trolling through the above link) which are 19x9.5 45 mm Offset. No wonder they're out there.

    So, I ran my calculator.





    With 245 tread I'll stick out a further 17mm from OEM. With 255 tread on the 19x9.5 I'll stick out 21mm from OEM. THATS HUGE (for me )

    Change your 245/40/19 to 245/35/19 (in the calc) and you'll find it is a closer match to OEM.

    However, unless you have really stiff suspension I would not recommend these as you will definitely scrub on hard cornering and take offs. 235/35/19 is a safer bet with the 19x8.5 et45

    Good Advice, thanks. Same price going from 40 to 35. Can you believe I would save AU$120 a corner on the same?? Sumitomo's I bought last year for $250 a corner fitted. Obviously delivery would bring that down (a bit or a lot???)...

    Long live the Redbull ... V2

    Oh wow. $250 a corner?! Ummm... A friend recently had the latest Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres, which have been getting great reviews, delivered for ~$1150 from tirerack. That's for 4x 225/40/18s. He said they were asking $800 per tyre at his local tyre shop. Another $100 for fitting and balancing = awesome savings all up.

    I'll be getting my next set of tyres through tirerack.

    Mazdab8, can we rename this thread "tyre/wheel thread" lol

    Why is it over? I'm sure mazdab8 would be happy to continue this as a tyre/wheel thread seeing as he's the one who caused a buzz with his suggestions of 18x9 et22 wheels on a 6 mps hahaha

    That would be one awesome buy, probably the lowest km example out there!

    *thread hijack* but can we find out what you're getting yet?

    I think there are some floating around the completed cruises. I'll see if I can find some.

    I think Chris might have more pictures of my car than I do hehe

    For a slightly smaller fee, so can I.
    ...but we wouldn't do that, would we Mr. Cheese?
    Aah, the suspense.
    FWIW, if anything happened to my 6 (heaven forbid) I'd be lining up to buy Nulliaj's.

    I like the fact you have an evo 8 in there ...

    needs more exterior shoots imo.

    This has turned into more of a general purpose thread , rather than a intro haha

    as I long as you don't mind us hijacking your intro thread

    I like the pic of the DVD playing Julian! "It's extremely difficult to mimic driving poorly..." True, but if you look on the roads at peak hour (or most of the time in Perth), "It's extremely difficult for poor drivers not to drive poorly"

    That was Keiichi Tsuchiya being told to drive badly while filming the scenes in the mountains in Tokyo Drift.

    Welcome! Also apart from all the wheel banter that is happening, post pics of the evo??

    Those other wheels you have they would not happen to be the 6 spoked star style Enkeis would they? I would love it if those would fit on a MPS3.. Would be much nicer if they were 18s as well
