Guys - we have marked down the Ultrex style rim to $899 plus delivery to shifter them

Our Ultrex RS style rims will also be on sale later this week and will be around $1000-$1100 per set...but limited stock at this these crazy prices! I am waiting on pictures of the rims which will be finished in the next couple of days and when I have them will post up pictures and the confirmed final prices!

These rims are VERY close in design to the Advan RS rims and are VIA and JWL certified meaning high quality!

pics are up on page one of the rims

You could spend $3000-$4000 on a set of Advans or $1000 on a set of these and spend the rest on beers and hookers! :lol:

Nice looking wheels.

But with that offset you'll be limited to a 225 tyre on a Liberty and even that will be borderline.

225's should be fine. i currently have 225's on my rims (think the offset is the same) and they don't scrub.

So here are some pictures...Whilst we were at it, we decided to weigh the rims when they had tyres on them...we were comparing the PRODRIVE PF7 rims with 18/40/245 to the ULTREX RS rims with 18/40/225. Both tyres were quite new although the Prodrive rims were 1 week old Bridgstones and the Ultrex rims had 3 month old Kumho KU36's.

Results were suprising on the household bathroom scales.... PF7's were a tad over 20kg with tyres (245 tyres though) and the Ultrex rims were about 19kg with thinner 225 tyres. We did this using just regular bathroom scales so its not conclusive and bigger tyres would be heavier but it's just a very good indicator that these are not heavy rims. :)

Eats brembos - lots of room!

In summary - very hot - its going to fill the guards...worst case scenario if your car is a SUPER low - you may need to roll the guards OR add a little camber...but on this wagon without any camber - it filled the guards perfectly!No havent installed them on a sedan and won;t be likely to happen either.

Tyres on the rims are 18/40/225 Kumho KU36's...

These will be available in about 2-3 weeks in either gunmetal (slightly darker than these fitted rims) or black - chrome lip....in 18X8 only...offset if 42 and they are duel 100/114.3 pcd.
Price is only $999 plus delivery which is one of the biggest bargains you will find for a mod for your car! :)

Pity you weren't able to test fit them with the colours you plan on selling. Definitely interested, just trying to resist temptation. lol.

So there's no chance of running say 235 wide tyres without rolling guards? As you said they fill the guards perfectly on the wagon so are the guards the same on a sedan? With my car being lowered about 2.5-3.0cm's on Tein's I worry about having to have the guards rolled.

Unable to test with gunmetal or black/chrome lip as its on the boat being shipped to me....gunmetal is very similar but a little darker (less cleaning!)

Rolling the guards wont make them any wider - only stop the inner guard rubbing on the tyres and cutting in to the tyres. On this car - there is still room between tyres and guards but yes each car is different depending upon how low you are.

I think if you go wider - you can add a little camber which will bring the tyres back in again under the guards. Also these tyres are kumnho ku36...I say that because each tyre has an actual width which does vary from tyre to tyre...even though they are all 'supposed' to be 225's. - tyres do differ..

Have you still got the spare rim left Rob???? I have fitted brembo's under my new rims and found out (before the inevitable) that I will need a spare.

If you still have this spare rim, can you pm me a price on what you want for it

Cheers

Phil

phil - the spare rim was a 18X7.5 and would not clear brembos...
