Hey guys decided on another set of wheels for the MP4 and wanted to go a little wider than oem . So i went with HRE P44SC in full polished ( she needs a little shine) with clear coat 20x9 20x12.5 tires Michelin PSS 245/30/20 and 335/30/20 ( In WB fashion 1st mp4 on 335 tires ). Weight on wheels front 20.1 lbs and rear 23lbs . Lowered the car 1" all the way around . Enjoy the pics. :)

ooh my eyes! Too shiny! Would look better with a brushed finish or a gloss black to match up with the side view mirrors.

Those look great Ben, but I'd hate to try to keep 'em clean.

May I ask if you managed to drive more than 1 meter without losing the rubber deflectors just ahead of the front wheels ? Even with normal superlight wheels, mine don't seem to last more than 1000 km at best.

more over, the larger rim/tire setup has to affect OEM setup and balance.......has to ride harsher even with proactive suspension;)

A bit too shinny, and I'd rather go with a 19 on the front. But nice to see someone out there willing to go about changing the wheels!

Congratulations, she sits perfectly.

If it has been lowered by someone that knows what they're doing, I am sure that ride quality would be unaffected given the nature of the suspension system.

Honestly guys ride just like oem ! lowering car is easy no parts necessary , car oem suspension is fully adjustable . plus 20x12.5 vs oem 20x11 and the new 335 tire rear filled up rear nice .

Wheel and tires look great!!!

What is the offset????
custom , wheel guys don't really share offsets as that's their specs and don't want people to copy for free. obviously you order a set they can make same specs. :D

Its not hard to calculate it at all.. just search online wheel programs out there and look at the factory offset... add 1.5 width, compensate, and voila... ;) nothing a little elbow grease can do...
