    Figured since my old favorites got a thread (RPF1) I thought I'd start one for titan7s.

    Here's mine. I'm not a photographer, as evidenced by my choice in backdrop. I'll have to find a better place and a better camera at some point. My first set of forged wheels and the most expensive! But worth it.

    Stock ride height, 18" ts5 in CTR fitment (9.5" wide, +45), satin titanium.

    Tires are 265/35 ad08Rs and they fit fine. Car feels a lot lighter on its feet on acceleration even despite the wider stickier tires.

    My bad. His looks like a personal thread. Didn’t want to hijack yours or his thread to make it a community post. Just trying to be a good citizen.

    And not to mention the other wheel titan7 makes is not being represented.

    Either way if you strongly have a mod remove it.

    I ordered thru a local vendor here the SF Bay Area...I think Evasive Motorsports is a good start for you.

    So I think the main titan 7 thread is this one:
    https://www.civicx.com/threads/titan7-track-wheels-civic-type-r-fk8.17271/

    I made this because at the time tjat thread was TS-5 focused.

    At any rate, the best fitment IMO is the +45. I'm biased, because that's what I got. However, it's the closest of the titan 7s to the stock scrub radius. This is for the torque steer considerations I think. I don't know much about torque steer because I haven't played with FWD in ages. The inboard side is pretty much the same as stock (you're out 2mm more, IIRC) so no clearance issues there.

    The tradeoff (if you're into that kind of thing) is that it's not as 'flush' as the +35 to the outside. I fit 265 without rubbing with the safer offset. Not sure what happens if you fit 265 on the +35s.

    Hope this helps.
