Since the CH's don't seem to fit my plans, does anyone have any experience with ASA wheels? I know they are lisensed by BBS, but is the strength/weight comparable to actual BBS wheels?

Gary, tirerack has 18X8F and 18X9R in this rim. What are the offsets and can I get a 255 tire on the 9" rear rim?

Thanks.

Sounds pretty good. Offsets sound pretty close to stock as well. As far as the rears are concerned, I know it's somewhat speculative, but do you think fender rolling might be necessary if I plan on lowering the car? I'd go with the 255's.

Its still borderline, but far more likely to work. I've heard of many on the forums using this type of setup on the coupes w/ no issues. Sedans tend be a bit tighter on clearances so a roll is more likely.

Sounds good enough, if I have to roll them I will, I wanted to know that I'll be starting with something that will need minor adjusments as compared to major work. Thanks for the help.
