Update
Aight, the racing hart GT5s in black is on back order and in order for me to get them rdmwheels would have to order them from Japan. If they did this, it would be the same price but they said it could take up to 60 days for me to receive them. Victoria tire has the same problem except they couldn't even tell me when I'd receive them. So this is what I plan to do.

I'm thinkin of getting those rims a having them powdercoated/painted black by a professional shop. Is 18x8.5 too big for my car? What size tires should I get? I don't want a 35mm sidewall because fo the roads here so please advise. Thanks.

If you really like those RH, why settle for anything else? You might not be happy in the end. So what if you have to wait 60 days. I had to wait a month for my wheels to get here from Japan, but it was well worth it. Just wait two months for the wheels to get here & it'll be well worth it in the end.

Yeah I know it sucks waiting. I ordered greddy exhaust from an authorized dealer and it took them a month when they told me it would be 5 days max! I also ordered a carbon fiber Hood about 2 weeks before I ordered the greddy, and that bitch still is not here!!!
But you should wait if that is what you really want IMO

You got a point. But I like the ADR Cypher just as well. Only problem is they don't come in black and gunmental wouldn't look as good on my car. So should I have them painted or will I run into problems with that. And what size tires should I get with 18x8.5, considering that I don't want a 35mm sidewall. Appreciate your input venom. thumbsup
