After massive debates whether to continue running my Volk RE30's (5x114.......so I'd have to get a conversion spacer...not really the way I want to roll) or getting BBS RS-GT's.... I decided on these Enkei EKM3's:

18x7.5 5x100 +45 offset in Hyper Silver color.

sweet! any pics installed from different angles?
Yeah, I'd like to see these too. Very curious to see 18's on this car with the stock suspension to see how the car looks!

Team Lexus, when are you getting them installed and can you share your tire specs/info. once you do?

Thanks!

Hey guys. Thanks for the positive feedback. If I had my choice, it would have two fewer spokes. But oh well. I had a huge debate in my head before going with these wheels. Countless photochops and spreadsheets debating the pro's and con's of running my Volk Racing RE30's on spacers vs getting BBS RS-GT's vs getting these. So I'm glad some people think it looks decent.

As for additional pics...... we'll have to wait and see.

My CT200h doesn't arrive until June unfortunately. I do have access to the car starting next week, so I'll see if I can sneak it away from the demo driver for a weekend; mount some 18" rubber on my Enkei's and grab some photos at stock ride height.

I do plan to lower the car. Just waiting on who will launch springs by the time June rolls around...... TEIN, Eibach, H&R, RS-R... who knows if they'll all beat F-sport in terms of launch timing. I'm trying to monitor that situation closely.

without regard to style of wheel, my whole approach to the aftermarket replacement will be predicated on the overall weight saving of the wheel over stock. i don't think you'll get that unless you pay the premium for it, as in a one-piece forged wheel by rays (volk) or something like that. re30 is certainly a sweet wheel that fits the bill.

The Enkei EKM3 are nice in style but at 24.5 pounds for the 18inch, that would be an additional 4.5 pounds per wheel, almost additional 20 pounds to the car, I don't know how that will mess with the mileage but I bought this car for economic reasons first, looks second....I am scoping out the TSW Nurburgs, not terribly expensive but around 20lbs a wheel.

Where did you get 24.5lbs for 18"?

Its listed at 23lbs.
That's about 3lbs heavier then OE. There will be some mileage loss with that. Minor.

I like how the tire discount site has the "interactive wheel system" views, but obviously they don't have the ct200h as an option. What do you guys use to look at potential wheels? Do you pick another car (with similar looks)? I assume the bolt patterns for the ct200h will be similar to other cars . . . I'm just trying to figure out the best way to "see" what some of these wheels might look like. I guess I can do some old fashion photoshop work.

Looking for some 18's. Any help is appreciated.

Yeah i guess you are right was looking on wrong line...

enkei EKM3 Wheels - Wheel Size & Price Details - 1010tires.com

That is the only place I could find the weight, anywho I still like the TSW Nurburg's, I am just deciding on when to buy. Already tinted windows, HID kit has been ordered after rims and lowering springs, I am good to go.

Damn, that looks hot. Too bad the pics are from Japan and we'll probably never know much about the drop. That car has to be dropped though... NICE!
