    I just don't like the look of the stretched tire and lip of rim very exposed. Plus it's a rougher ride.

    yea I have 215's on my 8" Nurburgs... wouldn't stretch them any more than that. I'll probably get 225's or even 235's next time.

    Yes. I agree. 235 would be ideal on the 8.5. 225 should be nice on the 8. Since I don't wanna buy new tires in just gonna go with a 7.5

    I've got the oem 215's on 18 x 8's. Looks good, fits pretty good, too. Next go around will be 225/40 Conti DWS. I'm trying real hard to wear out the oem's, but at 22,000 miles I still have a way to go, dammit.

    I don't think they make those TSWs in less than 8" wide.

    Would have just ran them stretched for a while and then buy some 225s. Or even find a local tire shop that could even trade you those almost new 215s for some 225s or 235s with about the same amount of miles/meat on them.

    Is the bolt pattern 5x100 on the VT also? My wife might steal them...

    Yeah. That trend needs to go away. looks stupid as hell and isn't the least bit functional.

    Yes the people at discount tire direct are swapping the wheels. They are a pleasure to deal with. Should have wheels sometime this week.

    Beautiful choice. I'm a fan of simple and my plain 6 spoke wheels prove that but if I wanted more complex this is something I'd look at.

    Looking good!

    No spacers?.. That fitment looks rather flush. Maybe a slight drop is all that's needed.

    Moar pics!

    Thanks! I definitely want to drop it a bit, just waiting for the NGM beta max to come back in stock.

    And yes, no spacers. I was really happy with the offset from the wheels

    I originally ordered the 8.5 but changed mind on stretch. My 7.5 will be here tomorrow. They had the 8 with the 35 offset but disnt want to go that low.

    Unfortunately it's a different pattern, funny that you have a BR-Z and a Veloster Turbo, my hubby has a FR-S
