I've taken a punt and ordered a set of Advan RZ-DF's. They come in exactly the same size and off-set as the TE37 Ultra option in the 19's.

19 x 8.5 +52 (F) and 19 x 10 + 40 (R)

It was a toss up between the 2 but ended up with the Advan's simply based upon the color option of the TE37's (really wanted black). I'll post up the results in here when they arrive but I am sure if the Advans are ok the TE37's will be also.

I can't wait to see how it looks on your car. I've always been a fan of the RZ-DF.

Thinner spokes look better on GT cars since it accentuates their innate agility

I wish the CE28's were available in 19/20" and in Porsche sizes but they're not...

I do love the look of the stock wheels though so it would be a drastic change in appearance with the TE37.

So the ADVAN rims have arrived. I weighed and test fitted before adding tyres.

No problems with fitment - although there isn't a heap of clearance over the front calipers. But they do clear ok.

Weights were impressive - rears were 9.1kgs (20lbs). Fronts were less obviously (can't remember exactly).

I'll get some tyres fitted and post some pics on the car.




We also tried test fitting some 18" TCIII's. They fit on the rear - but the fronts JUST don't fit. We actually could bolt them on but there was some rubbing on the caliper. They literally don't fit by 1mm. If you ground the edges off the very corner of the caliper you could get these to work if you were desperate to run 18's without changing calipers. Crappy pic below has the TCIII's on the rear and the RZ-DF on the front.
