Anyone have pics of 7.5" or 8" wide wheels on celi?
Hey, I really want to buy the 5Zigen FN10R-C's ...however, i want the anodized look. They only offer it in 8" wide. Would that stick out to far? If anyone has 7.5' wide I would really like to see what that looks like as well!!!! THanks in advance!!!

i've got 16X7.5 ssrs on mine, see sig.

they fit fine, I also just recently got 225/45/16 yoko es100's up front and have 205/50/16's in the back.

much better handlig with the larger 225's up front, less understeer and more grip, with just a tad throttle off oversteer

here is a pic of 7.5. Mine rubbed on the insides when the steering wheel was turned all the was but I removed the underbody plastics later on and the rubbing stopped. I imagine that 8" will rub as well depending on the offset.

Well forget it then. Maybe my celi is a little fat? anyway I took that stuff off for other reasons not because they rubed. Could be anything that caused the rubbing but the point is it sould not stop someone from buying cool wheels.

its all about the correct offset. you can fit 8 inch wide wheels but you have to take into account the right size tire at the same time. as long as you order the wheels and tires from someone who knows what they are doing youll be good to go
