Don't waste your time anywhere else.

Custom built to whatever offset you choose. 16-18 in 4x108 and 5x108

Lighter than stock wheels, stronger too. Many color options, made in the UK.

Best deal on custom wheels. Period.

Interesting site to calculate what you have and what you could have in spacing for your wheel and tire combinations.

Thank's Nick.

While the Tarmacs are certainly nice looking, they are way heavy, 27lbs each IIRC for the 17x8...Maybe Nick can correct me on that.

Team Dynamics offers the Pro Race 1.2 in 18x8 @ 19.8 lbs and 18x9 @ 21.4lbs. Custom offsets, a range of colors, and the option of no lettering on the rim (aka Spec 390, a Perfect Circle Autosport development) is available for spec ordering directly from the UK factory. Staggered, mixed offsets, each wheel a different color...there are many combinations.

Perfect Circle Autosport is Team Dynamics #1 North American spec wheel dealer. If it is Team Dynamics wheels you want, PCA is the place to go.

One quick item, the Tarmac is a low pressure cast wheel. The Team Dynamics wheels (not the Pro Forged) are premium low pressure cast, heat treated, shot peened wheels, and have OEM quality coatings. Great wheels and the price is great also. Just ask Nick!

Any questions, please pm or contact me here.

Ok, side question.

Suppose I want 205/45R17 tires on a 17x8 wheel. The tires are spec'd to fit on a 6.5-7.5" rim, so about a 1/2" stretch. How noticeable is this stretch? I don't mind a tiny bit, but I don't want that extreme stretch and poke.

Every tire stretches differently. Not all tires of the same size designation are the same size.

Why not 215 if your not planing on slamming your car why stretch the tires. 215 would be perfect. IMO
