T3 with Enkei 8.5"x18"F + 9.5"x18"R DONE

Everybody who's interested- I've been talking about this for a while but I have finally done it- just to get a feel for the water I am posting this now- If you want pics you have to ask nicely!!!

Just for the record, fitted a set of new Enkei RPO3's (Enkei's flagships) running 255/35Y18's on 8.5" rims on the front and 275/35Y18's on 9.5" on the rear with Brembo brakes.

No worries- no modifications and no Azzuro's; woohoo.

Remember to ask- I wanna know people want to see these!!! They look great but am open to comments.

(only not posting yet as the digital's at home- but couldn't wait to let everyone know finally I've done it)

$675 for the fronts (8.5"x18") and $775 for the rears (9.5"x18")- retail.

Have been waiting three months for these to come from Japan- they are the first and look great I reckon- didn't you have the five spokes on Steve- didn't they clear the calipers when you changed to Brembos??

The blokes at the wheel shop were blown away how well the wheels were packaged and the extra equipment each wheel came with- an extremely good product.

And so, so, so light. Half the weight of the azzuros.......

Is that a pair or each? No prob with the Brembos I just want bigger wheels on the back for a bit more drive. The RPO2s we used on the GT were 5kg lighter than the GT wheels...

Sadly, that's each.

No the wheels are a silver finish- I thought the white might look OK too, but i'm so happy with these-

pics are on their way!!

Re: T3 with Enkei 8.5"x18"F + 9.5"x18"R DONE

Please hurry with da pics.....If they look good on the car then, i want a set. I'm sick of cleaning my Azzuro's with a toothbrush.


OMG...I had a look at the wheel on their website...that is a very nice wheel. If it suits the T3 i'm getting a set. Can I have the contact number of the place that you ordered them from....PLEASE.



Cheers.
