Nice. Are those 19's, or the special 20's? I think the 20's in diamond black are called the championship series?!?! What are the specs?

These are 19's. I really didnt like the ride that much when it came to spirited driving with the 20's, which is why many downgrade. Yeah, no doubt the 20's probably look a bit better, but with the right drop and 19's u get the best of both worlds, whereas with 20's u sacrifice one world and enhance the other haha.

360's r gone. Just got rid of them. Was gonna kepp them but decided i didnt want them anymore. I didnt like the turning feel with the 20's when driving fast. If u want performance u need to stick with 19's

BTW, these r the 19x9.5 and and 19x10. I wanted to go with the 11's but they dont make the 11" in the DBK finish. Offsets are as aggressive as they get for these wheels.

I can't wait to see them on your car either! Did you go with the 11" rear?

offsets are 19x9.5 +32
19x10 +25

Im not an expert at this. With these offsets I was told they r gonna b as aggressive as they get, thse r the most aggressive offsets they have on the 19" setup. Is that gonna b as flush as they can be or can i still fit a speacer? Reason I ask is because I have one set of 5mm, 10mm, 12mm and 15mm spacers lol. I could use them if i had to.

+32mm for the 9.5" in front is not aggressive. It will be a few mm out further than stock, but not much. A good flush 9.5" wheel would have an offset around 15 to be really aggressive. Use your 15mm spacer and you will love it. If it is too much, just use one of the other spacers!

I believe this car has a 19x9.5 up front with a +32 offset. Either way, my spacers should fix that right up haha. I will also b dropped on H&R's plus sports

Those look like the 19" x 8.5" ET17 to me if they are 8.5" ers. The rears look like the 11" ET25's. I would have gone with the ET17's to fit better. Stock is 8.5" ET29, so the ET17's would come out by 12mm. Some people are running 15mm spacers to get the stock wheels to just about flush.
