    hence the expression "could be worse". don't get me wrong, I wouldn't purchase them, but I would take them over the thousands of sets of XXR 527's out there on the scene today.

    seen those in person on an sc, not digging the spokes looks like a cheap wheel.

    18x11 Rota MXR on an STi. It's only a matter of time before NASIOC gets a hold of this pic.

    ^^^^^^ that would look on point if the lips were bigger

    on another note, my new setup:
    NT03-M 18x9.5 +34

    The pics suck, black wheels are hard to shoot. If anyone can offer some advice it would be greatly appreciated.

    aftermarket flares on top of already wide factory fenders always looks weird to me. it doesn't flow with the body lines of the car at all. maybe thats just me though. its like a cheap easy way to try and fit wide wheels.

    527s....ugly as fuck! I can't stand xxr's at all. I'm ok with a rota from time to time or the varrstoens I had, but personally, I don't think I'd ever buy reps again. The quality of build for a "Real" wheel is second to none.

    I'm with you. I haven't been a big fan of the Karlton flare. I just don't think it looks right. Question, are most of the guys running them actually cutting the fenders for added clearance or are they just slapping on flares on factory fenders for the wide look?

    The majority of the people I've seen that run the flares are doing them for the added clearance and cutting the fenders. Most of them are auto-x'ers or time-attackers just looking for that extra grip. They're a good budget mod to get that extra clearance. For a "looks" car that doesn't see the track, I'd much rather see a rear fender that matches the aggressiveness of the front.

    I've yet to install my flares. Too much things going on so it's on hold. Negative offsets coming soon! Plus meaty tires of course
