I just picked up staggered 19X8.5 and 19X 9.5 setup. The fat lip in the rear looks awsome.

Get same size all around if you care about handling.

I was disappointed at how much understeer this car had with staggered SP set up. That's the only reason I went with 235/35/19 F&R. Being able to rotate the tires is just a bonus.

Thanks,

They're BBS RG-R in Diamond Black finish. Basically it looks like a very rich polished rim however that finish is actually painted.
