ok i ordered my wheels 15x8 in black with 0 offset and they are backordered for about two weeks so i have time to look for rubber. it will be only dd for a while until i get my motor setup figured out. but i live on back roads that like good traction to keep up with me. the fenders will be rolled and the car sits on tein springs and will eventually see tein coilovers.
what width can i run easily with minimal rubbing. i've read that some people have had blow outs on over streched rims, now does that mean exploded or just drops flat faster when you get "nailed".
what companies are better than others for the strech the guy at c2auto said i would want something that was "soft" to take to the strech.

I just ordered some 002 in gunmetal as well and they are coming with Lexani Nexen N3000 tires. I heard they are big in Japan but not well known here.

No he "curbed" it.

Turns101 has been tracking his car with sportmax on. No problems so far.

As long as you dont hit anything hard its ok. Out of 100 sets of 002 I've sold, i havent gotten any complaints about the wheel shattering like that.

Like I said in the other thread, any wheel that gets hit hard like that is destroyed.

a good place to buy the 002's would be c2auto.com very good prices, friendly staff, and awesome product selection beyond wheels.

don't get me wrong, i love the wheels, and i drift with them as much, or my than jeff. The materials they are manufactured from are just not the best...this is why you pay 100$ a wheel.
