New kicks!!! Feeling excited...

It’s not easy to find wheels for the jcw esp if you’re picky like me lol I did a lot of research, talking to several people in Japan, measuring of the calipers, did a lot of test fitment etc

Finally after 9 weeks of waiting, my new kicks has arrived and I’m super excited haha and so as my Michelin PS4S

Now i need to wait patiently for my coilovers so I can start with this loooooong project of mine that I’ve been debating since I got my car 2 years ago

That was my first choice. Do you know if the 17x7.5 will clear the JCW caliper?

I don’t think it will... all I know is when mackin industries did the measurements to send it to Yokohama, all they told me was my choice will clear the calipers (18x8 et 42)

Did you get semi-gloss black? Would definitely like to see these in person when you get them mounted.
