Our SE's are 63.4 HUB which is what my guy ordered. But their site says 63.3 - According to my wheel guy, "I ordered 63.4 WITH Hub rings." Don't forget to order those!!

So if you do go with these, you def want 18x8.5 +40 with 63.4 hub size and hub rings. Rear's could use a spacer, maybe 5mm to 10mm (max) but not by much.

Good luck!


I should also add that if you want to go lower than me (im at the highest setting btw) I would go a smaller tire. The lowest you can go before stretching the tire is 225's. Anything lower requires stretching of the tire which I don't like nor recommend but you can get low.
I know they're working on an ST for one of their projects, so I'll see if they can provide more input. Not sure how low I'll end up, but thanks for the input!
