You'll have to let us know lol. I keep meaning to measure with a feeler gauge to see if I could fit nt03s. It'd be really close. (To the spring)
Being a partial test dummy isn’t always fun gotta do what ya gotta do I guess haha I think (hope) I’ll be okay

Kong Freeform, matte silver. 18x8.5 et43
Hankook Ventus R-S4 245/40
Stock suspension
Fitment is spot-on. No rubbing or issues in normal driving. This is my track setup and will get its first test next Saturday.
I agree with you Magnus, fitment is spot on.

I am considering Enkei TS-V 18x8.5 ET40 with 245/40 PS4's on stock suspension. I now wonder, after seeing your setup, if I will end up with a little poke . I know the offset diference is only 3mm but yours look so flush... I have zero tolerance for poke.

I just bought some TS-Vs that have my summer tires on, 245/40. Waiting until April to install. Very nice wheels.

Currently have Fifteen52 Turbomacs 18x8.5 with a 42mm offset. As for a poke, they are pretty flush on stock suspension.

Please send some pictures once you have your new wheels installed.

What tire brand and model are you mounting on them?

Installed these today. Konig Ultraform 18x8 with 235/40/18 Falken Azenis 615K+. Discounttire had them for $141/wheel, couldn't pass that up at 17.8lbs a wheel. Primarily going to be my Autocross and track day set up.

I had those wheels on my car with all season tires for about two years. I ran them with 245/40(I think)18s. I moved back to stock, but I'm not sure I'll stay that way.

I think they technically bump you up a class in autocross because they exceed the +-7mm allowable offset, by 1mm if I remember correctly. I don't have any clue if anyone pays that much attention.

I plan on keeping the stock wheels and probably throwing a set of A/S or a decent summer tire on for daily driving. Any reason in particular you switched back?

My region isn't too strict, especially since I don't run every month. If someone really makes a stink, I figure I'll throw a set of small spacers on to make me legal.

Hey guys, bought some Esm 007 wheels a few years ago for my dark blue ST. Traded that in for the RS before I mounted them. So I had these sitting in storage. Figured why not slap them on to see what they looked like and I'm torn, maybe in a different colour I'd be happier. As is- ESM 007PL 18x8.5 +35 on eibach springs. I'll have to edit in the tire size, I forget right now. I have massive camber arms and toe arms waiting to go on when I get some coilovers, been eyeballing pedders. (sorry for the quality, I pulled these from snapchat)

I went back to stock because I came into a set of brand new, stock winter wheels for a steal. I never felt the improved ride I hoped for from the 18"with a little more sidewall, but that could be there nature of the pirelli all seasons I was running.

At this point, I'm just trying to decide what to sell. I have autox dreams, but can't seem to find time. I like the idea of dedicated snows in the winter, but the all seasons are nice when we drive to Florida. It's also nice not switching wheels each season.

I remember you from 780tunas, small world. Pretty sure you had these (or similar) on a red FoSt didn't you? Was my motivation to buy these when I had an St, but with the RS it's meh. Coils might make me change my mind, but I'm thinking black face with polished lip instead.
