Thanks a lot for posting this. I have the same color Type R, and those are literally the exact same wheels and tires that I wanted to go with. I only held off because supposedly knowledgeable people told me the 45mm offset would be a problem with torque steering, and that the 18x9.5 wheels would rub, or create other handling problems. I also read a surprising number of great reviews on the tires and talked to a very experienced forum member about them. Everyone said their grip was excellent, and they would also offer me the ability to use the car 95% of the time in my region, given the seasons. One those days (maybe 20 a year) If there is significant snow on the road, I have an alternate vehicle.
Just looked them up, planning to order them from Tire rack, but they say the Montegi MR146 won't fit my Type R???
I can't make any sense of this. Previously, about a month back, I even had them, plus the tires in my cart and all was okay. They also appear to be on closeout.
I previously talked to the only two Discount Tire stores anywhere near me, and they said they could not order Montegi wheels because of some regional issue. If I can't get them from Tire rack, I'm in trouble. They are the only place that had them at a good price, with free shipping, and free mounting and balancing.
Thanks for posting this. I was close to pulling the trigger on the MR924s but think I’ll be happier with 18s in the long run due to the crappy roads in my area. Just called DTD and placed an order for this setup.
Enjoy. I'm super happy with how these turned out.Thanks for posting this. I was close to pulling the trigger on the MR924s but think I’ll be happier with 18s in the long run due to the crappy roads in my area. Just called DTD and placed an order for this setup.
