I'm thinking of ordering some Tarmacs from Fifteen52. I've been undecided on wheels for about a year now but...

Just wanted to see if anyone was running this setup on their car and what their experience has been. (I realize the implications of a 9.5 wide wheel)

Judging by the tire fitment of the white car above, those are 8.5" Tarmacs. The cars with 9.5" wheels are noticeable by either having flares, pulled lips, or stretched tires.

I am almost certainly going with 8.5's but I thought I'd ask if anyone was rocking 9.5's and had a picture.

There's also the issues of them being in stock first.

Everyone and their mom wants Tarmacs.
I emailed them about 4-5 months ago. They said they hoped to get a shipment in July. But no dice. Good luck on getting a pair. Cause they haven't been in stock in a long time.
