So until this morning I was set on picking up a set of 14x7 +19 RPF1s but I have found a set of white 16x7 +42 Volk TE37s at a comparable price with tires.
Mostly I just wanted some opinions on if the 16x7 will be to big for my NA and if they wont look as good, with the +42 offset. If someone has pics of these on a red NA or can photoshop it that would be awesome!

My car is mainly used as a spirited DD but will see a few track and AutoX days every year so I'm looking for a good blend of form and function.
I'm currently dropped about 2" on Tokico blues but will be buying coilovers as my next major mod for more low and stiffness on the track.

Thoughts. Opinions. Your .02
I wanna hear it all


Side note - The TE37s come with 205/40 size tires. I dont wanna stray too far from the stock diameter, but how will the thinner sidewalls affect my ride quality?

Sounds like you can benefit from reading the Fitment Thread. It's indexed in the wheel & tire section. At least read the first 10 pages or so. That will help you decide on what type of wheel diameter, offset and tire size you really want.

My personal 2¢: The RPF-1's will look 10000% better than those FWD offset TE37's. The Volks will look super sunken.

^ I'm with them. My first set of wheels were 15's and now that I have 14's, I think 14's fit the look of the car better. Don't do 16's.

Thanks for all the input. Looks like my I picked right the first time and should just stick with the RPFs.

Anyone have tire recommendations? I was thinking of Dunlop Direzza DZ101 since we get a bit of rain here in the NW and they seem to be a good bang for the buck.
