    Hello - anyone has experience with the RSSW Velocity heels ? They have a +38 offset.

    I was just looking at the same wheels on quattro tires site since last week. Contemplating ordering it and some winter tires for my stinger. I would also like to know if anyone else knows how they compare to the Fast Wheels FC04 that seems to be really popular.

    I still have a set of rims from my old car and I want to use them for the winter. Anyone know if these will fit?

    Here are the specs:
    18x8
    5x114.3
    Offset: 55mm
    Centre bore: 64mm

    offset seems high but the main concern is your center bore.
    ours is 67.1mm there anything bigger, you can get a hub centric ring to help , anything smaller wont just fit ...

    That's incredibly pretty. 2020 calendar entry for sure (if we ever get a 2020 calendar, that is :rolleyes: ). I saved that one on my 'puter background picture changer! :thumbup:

    Hey! I live in Toronto but I’m from Ottawa so I know how bad the winters can get in your area. I just bought Michelin X-ice 3’s for this winter - my friend in Ottawa who just bought the stinger also put these on his car. Hope that helps!

    Hello - finally selected Fast Switch wheels and Blizzak WS80 from a shop called ZRacer in Mississauga. Got the TPMS modules from an eBay reseller as others have reported. 1500$ plus taxes.

    Advan replica's with Mirage winter tires. Yes I know - it's a Chinese brand but I'll be happy if I get 3 to 4 winters out of them. No real snow fall as of yet but went through a down pour with them, no hydro planing or loss of traction in any way. Winter rims and tires.jpg

    My local tire shop down right refused to mount my 225/40/19 snow tires on the OEM rear 8.5 wheels. He said it's against company policy to stretch tires. I said thank you and will take my business somewhere else
