RPF1 17x8 5x100 45mm Offset 73mm Bore Silver Wheel by Enkei
Enkei Lightweight Racing Series - RPF1:
Shaping by the MAT process reduces wheel weight by 10%-15%. Every pound of unsprung weight savings has the effect of reducing overall vehicle weight by 20lbs.
Enkei is an official supplier of the McLaren Mercedes Formula One Team. The RPF1 was developed using the same technology as the Formula One race wheel. TWIN SPOKES: Enkei's dual open stance spoke design is used on the McLaren Mercedes Formula One race wheel. The twin spokes achieve better stress dispersion on curves, hard braking, and extreme race driving.
Enkei's pocket design around the bolt circles increases rigidity and keeps the wheel cooler during aggressive race driving.

These rums make for the perfect combo on a Evo X , the rims came in two days and the install went great.
Very happy with the look and fitment of these wheels on my 2008 Evo X
Fitment: +15 fit just right and cleared the front brakes as expected. The forums were not wrong when I was researching the best fit.
Rubbing: I am lowered on a set of Fortune 500 and there is no issue with steering. However, it is important to roll/pull at least the rear fender as there will be significant rubbing when going over bumps (the significance is subjective, I know).
Colour: I decided to try out the SBC finish instead of the standard colours and was impressed. The SBC creates a "dark shift" in terms of the reflection based on the surrounding area. If the environment is bright, the wheels are more silver, but when in low light or similar, they become a very dark silver, almost "black chrome".
Tires: I got a good deal on some General G-Max (265/35/R18) and they bulge a little.
I am happy with the purchase and would recommend to other owners. I was suspect on whether I would truly enjoy the look as opposed to something like the NT03's, but seeing them on the car, I am no longer worried.
