Just thought I'd plug this website: http://www.jdmwheelimports.com.au/

Got my wheels from there a while ago, great service and I haven't been able to find any cheaper. I bought some cheapie XXR502s, 9" front 10" rear from memory - but I rekon they turned out pretty good. Offsets were near perfect. If you look in the gallery my car's the silver aristo (currently at the end).

Picked these Nemoto 'Godfather' mesh type rims up from otomoto in 'parra with a set of ATR Sport (cheap) sticky tires
Fricken good deal for the coin since i'm building my car on a budget.
The kanji in the centre caps says 'origin of sound' whatever.

18" x 8.5" +35 235/45 fronts
18" x 9.5" +35 265/40 rears

Fills guards nicely, no scrubbing, also picked up a set of HSD coilovers while I was there.
I've fitted the fronts already but the rear end is a pita, i'll get around to it.

Nice clean ride.

So they still stock coilovers in Australia?

Undo the sway bar links and the rears are just as easy as the fronts to fit.

You'll find they are a pretty stiff ride. Make sure to have as little static tension on the springs, just enough to keep them captive or you will have drift city handling.

Yep they stock 'em, not meaning to thread jack. Thanks Re 'clean ride'
I had him put 14kg springs on fronts and 7 on rears so they aren't too jarring.
In my case the thing stuffing up the rear coil install is the main bottom bolt on the strut.
The bolts are in the wrong way with the nut to the front of the car, the only leverage point that gives room for a breaker bar is to turn the bolt head, too much torque reqd. We simply couldnt undo them, too damn tight. Figure I'll get the car up on a hoist and have the mech undo and reverse them for me, then will be easy for me to do it later.

The nut is on the right way. The nuts are knurled to stop them from spinning. You have to undo the bolt and not the nut. Spray some freeze and release on the bolt.

fronts will be a pretty brutal roll to get them on (suggest more like a +35 if u can), rears would be fine, touch of stretch and camber and youd be right!

Fronts will fit with a 235 tyre and 2.5 degree camber, or be very close

I run 18x9+14.. and they rub on bumps / some corners though

Without camber, they poke, but by lowering car they camber in and it looks pretty much flush (slight poke)

But...be aware with anything that aggressive be prepared for some rubbing/rolling of guards/both
