whats the offset and width of the RX8 rims? i HAVE to replace these 15 steelies....theya re KILLING ME!!!!!!! i can figure out any rwd Isuzu 6 lug wheel offset, but this positive offset throws me . Im looking online and they say 50mm offset, how is that possible and not be waaaaaaaaaaay in the fenderwells ? are you running spacers?

are the rims staggered, i like how they sit near the fenderwells and not tucking. any info would be great!!
looking great
Ron

how did you get the front bumper painted? did you do it yourself or did you have it professionally done? how much did it cost you in total?

from what ive read theyre 18X8 with a +50 offset...so idk? lol im not to sure what the stock offset is, and they are wider than stock rims...so...lol..idk? and im not running spacers.

the rims aren't staggered, if you see my truck in person, and if you look closely at the pics the rear sits a little further in than the fronts, i guess just because how our axle is.

i think our trucks look a little better with larger wheels, just cause our trucks are bigger compared to the last generation. 17s or 18s are THE largest i would go, but personally 16s and 17s look good on those trucks. i might step it up to 19s with a little better offset later on so i can fit bigger brakes, but thats not for awhile.

also i have 60 series tires on the 18s...lol helps with less of the wagon wheel look when u have low pro tires

if you don't want to go too low id go with the ss kit...the thing is though its $300 ish plus new front struts which would run around $140 or so...id try and wait off on a better deal for the rims, 600 with no tires is a little steep.

Must say, I'm not a big fan of lowered trucks, but yours I genuinely like!

r u talking about the interior lights? cause theyre white lol...i guess how the pics come out the coloring makes em look blue...but yah..

the HIDs died like idk...4 months ago? i think? lol imma wait to put new ones back when i get safety, but when did have them in i actually didn't have any problems, they were 4500k so they weren't blue at all, pretty much pure white. i went through some duis with them, and when i did get flagged down the officer didn't even mention it, he was just talking about how bright my dome light was lol...
