New rim age, again

I finally got some wheels with the perfect fitment. I am not running any spacers. I ordered the front wheels with an 8.5j width and running 235/20/35, previously I had been running 255s but was getting severe rubbing when turning corners and a lot of tram lining. The rears are still 10.5j with 275/20/30 tyres.

The wheels are made by BC racing and are HB 29s with goss black lip and matte centres.
They weigh a lot less than my previous wheels and the paint job seems a lot better. And the best thing is that they don't cost a fortune!

Yeah they are great ....

I was running that spec on my previous 20s and they rubbed way too much on the inner are when I turned the wheel.

Looks aggressive! I would not be happy with the front tire size if it were me (too narrow and too small of a side-wall) but it looks good in pictures.

Looks incredible. Someone correct me if I am wrong, doesn't running 235 in the front and 275 in the rear throw off the offset? Doesn't this harm handling?

The wheels do compliment this car phenomenally though.

This gets my stamp of approval, even though the wheels are black.

Damn the tires are so thin!! 235/20 is ridiculous. I have seen people with 255/30/20 up front, there's even one guy that is trying to get a 285/25/20 to fit in the front on a 10" rim. Looks good in pics though. Congrats.
