I was about to buy a set of 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?

Great find! These guys have previously worked with the NSX forums on forged wheels and are super legit.

Yep. I’ve seen their main market is s2k and nsx but was excited to see them offer the Y style wheel in 5x120 bolt pattern and sized for the fk8. I placed an order about a week ago and can’t wait to receive them. I was surprised there aren’t more posts about them on this forum.

Definitely looking forward to seeing how these look and what you think of them when you get them fitted up. NSX style wheel for sure but as you say in a better size.

Fab resource but before we get too excited the FK8 18” show Unavailable, sounds like 19” are… or were?

Where do you see that exactly? There’s a table showing the staggered set is not available for the fk8. I was looking at the Y wheels but I don’t believe all their wheel designs are offered in FK8 specific fit.

My error, sorry. I mistook the right column, bottom block in chart as 19” that don’t seem listed (if available) when bottom right block is FK8 Staggered (Unavailable).
Getting old sucks, not all reading glasses have caught up.

Noiyce!
Now all you need are some lowering springs to fill some gapapage. Stock height I think you could have gone 265/35-19 without rub. Considering 265 next vs 255/35-19 x 9.5 ET41 on Eibach Pro lowering springs (-.8”-1”).
