    love the setup! i have a question - do the ps4s sidewalls extend past the wheels and offer any curb protection... even a little?

    Ever so slightly but I dont think it will provide any protection at all

    that is a huge bummer. i’m planning to run exactly the same setup as yours and was hoping the ps4s would be chunky enough to offer at least a little protection against curb rash.

    thanks for the feedback.

    crazy how the TR5 seems slightly brighter/lighter than the bronze on my TR-10s. Looks good though!

    I've read on this forum that the further away from +60 that we get, the greater the impact to our handling/torque steer will be. I am far from an expert on this, so I wanted to ask - with these wheels at +45, how bad would the impact be?

    I haven't noticed any. I'm lowered on prokit though, so not sure if that helps even it out. Seriously, I've noticed no increase in torque steer from using 45 offset (I'm using TR-10s)

    Thanks. I'd like to get these wheels for a lowered black CTR, like the one in the picture, and would love to know if anyone here is running them on a lowered setup.

    I think that the bronze and black contrast would look amazing.

    Are you sure that these are a +45 offset? I've only been able to locate them in +40.

    Nice setup. What lug nuts are those? Stock ride height?

    They’re only available in +35 and 45?

    You maybe thinking of the RSR’s? If so, they’ll mill them a bit for an added fee.

    Torque steer/scrub being brought up in nearly every thread in this section is getting really old. Go to the damned gym.

    Yes the 265/35 will offer some rim protection. These Titan are 9.5 wide so it shd have it for sure since I’m running 18x10 and I have some rim protection on mine

    One of the few companies I've seen with a bronze that comes anywhere close to being as good looking as the Rays/Volk bronze, looks great!
