This is a great set up. I'm looking at a 19x10 +40 setup, so I'm keen to see how you find this after you have given it a good road test. Keep us updated.

For the Type R yuou will need a 5x120 bolt pattern. A 19x8.5 with 40 offset should fit BUT not sure if about front caliper clearance unless someone has already tried these on a FK8...

I was about to buy the NSX Y wheels but wasn’t totally set on the 19” diameter or the stock gray color. I continued searching and found MITA motorsports offers a forged Y spoke wheel in 18x9.5 +45 and allows you to select from many color options. Comes with center caps and lug nuts too. Has anyone ordered these?

This is my first time seeing these and they look like a solid competitor to Titan7's offerings and they even have more color options. Similar price range for fully forged wheels and specs/hub size specific to the FK8.

I'd be curious if their JWL certification is very sound though since apparently the Titan7's kinda cut corners on that front according to this short read (https://www.apexraceparts.com/blog/are-your-wheels-really-jwl/). That being said, I was happy with the TS-5's I had.

Good info. Thank you. Do you happen to know where the titan7 wheels are made?
I definitely like the look of the nsx or Mita Y’s better than the ts5 titan7. The titan7 has more ridges/creases on the spokes that are subtle but I’d rather not have those features.

A quick google search seems to indicate that the Titan7's are made in China.

I'd imagine the Mita wheels are of similar quality given the price point - but I'd personally be wary of dropping $2k+ on a product without much testimony behind it. Definitely report back here if you do go with them though.

I am not sure how long they have offered the fk8 fitment but I was also surprised to see no hits on civicx for “Mita”
