Cool, thanks for posting the link.

Curious which wheels that come in 18x9.5 ET25 did you get for your square set? Are you certain that 275 tires will not have rubbing issues front or back? Is your car lowered? Post pics of the wheels if you have them I know Volk RE30s can be ordered in that exact spec with the +25 offset, which seem ideal. I was also given the option of 18x9.5 Volk TE37 or CE28N with +22 offsets and they are all tempting because of the lightweight forged monoblock construction and the relatively low cost compared to other forged wheels.

My current thinking right now is that even if a square set does sacrifice some neutrality (if any at all), it would be worth it just to have the flexibility of rotating the tires to get the most out of them.
