    I have this Ek9 for about 3 weeks now and i dont know how these wheels are from but pretty sure they are not 98spec DC2 wheels. I am the 5th onwer of this car.
    Well yeah what do you guys think of my wheels on my EK?

    I would guess that they have been repainted in white, i have only seen the silver/gunmetal colour too i could be wrong though.

    Can you tell me more of this rim? Does it fit right? Any rubbing on inner fender when during full turn? Is there any spacer used? If yes, how many mm?

    pretty sure the offset is slightly more than the ek9 (iirc ek9 is +45, think these are +50). so will sit slightly further inside the wheel well

    EK9 original rim comes with offset 50..... CL1 rim offset is 55 width is 6.5. So I am not sure if it fit good with full swing left n right with still some clearence.....
