need to machine the bore to 74.1mm

and front should be 18x8, probally m-parallels.

it'll fit no problem, once you get the bore fixed.

take the tires off the wheels, I think they'll charge about $50 to bore it out per wheel.

or ish.

with that much hassle, you should pass on them and wait for the right fitment.

sending the wheels to a machine shop isn't that much hassle.

any competend machine shop can put that on a lathe and bore it out, if its good deal then go for it, stock M-parallel are at least 3k brand new, that's IF.

It should be fine when its bored out... unless they screwed up lol... And I don't know if there will be a rubbing issue on the front... 18x9 is fairly large for the fronts.. but you should try and check the clearance before you do it...

sounds like a hassle to get them onto my 530

cost of the wheel set with tires $1200

then $200 to bore

then another $100 to re install tires

it all adds up

anyone else selling a similar set ?
