I might be selling my RPF1 wheels. Still not sure yet.... They are 17x9 35 offset, I'm lowered on ProKit which is 1.4"/1.5" drop? It rubs on bumps and hard cornering so rolling your fenders is required.:confused: I would sell them with Michelin Pilot Sports tires already on them. 225/45 tires. Also if you have 2012/2013 wheels in good condition I will take them plus cash on your end.

I like the look of these rims on your car, you give me a good reference seeing how i have the EXACT same car as you. I'm a huge fan of the PF01 but can't afford a set yet, I'm trying to get the EXACT same size rims for my car. I currently have the stocks rims on and would like a wider tire setup although you said you had to roll fenders with the prokit. I purchased the sportline and sway bars but haven't installed them yet, I'm wondering if it would make it even worse for my setup.

Sportlines are close to 2" drop I think it's 1.8" front and 1.6" rear. If I were you I would also buy camber kit for the rear either SPC or Buddy Club. Plenty of people sell their used Enkeis in CA so you can probably snatch them for a good price.

Don't slam it, It's not worth it all the hassle and destroying your car underneath. Function>>>>>>>>Form :wheee:

Lol I learned that the hard way, my first set up was 17x9+22 205/40 maxed out coils, my Invidia N1 looks like a cheese grater down there. But I dig your setup man, makes me want more Function haha

well I will be using mine in AutoX and Minor track use, I've already done about 3 events without any suspension work to really learn the car. Now I'm ready to extend into more adjust-ability and be able to dial in cornering grip. I was planning on doing it proper and install everything all at once when i have all of the under body braces and the koni shocks. I'm kind of gathering as much information as possible and process of eliminating, I appreciate all the feedback. :D

and I think i found the right camber kit on ebay http://www.ebay.com/itm/SPC-FRONT-R...60-/171551735806?_trksid=p2141725.m3641.l6368
