A friend of mine has some VOLK TE37's in 16x8 w/ a 4x114.3 hole pattern... I haven't seen any 1Xx9's around... I was looking too when I had a base model 4 lug. Good Luck!

Actually, I'm looking at the VOLK catalog I got from IAS last weekend and 16x8 is the widest config they got in 16 or less.

well i dont know your budget, but some good ones are the volk te37( spoke) 16x9 arent easy to come by, i think bbs would have somthing, off the top of my head thats all i can think of, look at takakaira.com, theyve got alot of funky rims, but there all top dollar and have to be imported

You're not going to find anything "cost-effective" in those sizes and 4-lug.

Hey Adam,
Have you thought of the 5-lug conversion. I sold mine from the first wreck for 400 canadian. They're really hard to find at the wreckers but if you do find any you'll save thousands...Rims in 5 lug pattern are widely available for some reason..

Have you looked at RAYS Gram Lights? They come in 15's now. Or Rega Master EVO and Advan RG (Racing Gymkhana) both come in 16.8.

Adam, what offset are your wheels and what size spacers would make them fit?

I want 225 40-18F 255 35-18R. How can I make them fit?

89 hatch 5 lug, 300tt 96 calipers
