Sooooo, I'm looking at getting another set of wheels, and I need some opinions, both technically and aesthetically speaking.
Here are the two choices. They are both new releases.
1) TSW Amaroo
This wheel is 18"x8", with a +35 offset. TSW says it WILL NOT WORK on the Kia Optima. They say it will rub, period. However, there ARE forum members running +35 offset wheels on lowered Optimas (everyone with Gen Coupe wheels, I think... certainly the 18" ones) who report no rubbing. (One such person posted in the "known combos" thread.) Based on this, I think it would work, but it's kind of hard to think about getting something the manufacturer tells you outright won't work.
2) Advanti Racing Fastoso
This wheel is also 18"x8", but has a +45 offset. Since the factory rims are 18"x7.5" with +46 offset, I think it's a given that these will work fine. While they're similar, I just don't think they look *quite* as nice as the Amaroo.
So what do you all think? I'm going to list 3 options on the poll, just to kind of see where y'all are coming from. I really appreciate your input. As I've said before, I'm comfortable making my own decision, but I'm also always interested in seeing what people think.
