    Hey team.

    I'm currently on the hunt for a new set of 18x8.5 +45 wheels for my fiance's brand new Lancer ES 2013.

    It's got the VRX leather seats, and looks tidy inside, but it's sitting on 16" steelies so needs to get onto something a little nicer.

    She really likes Rota Grid R's and Origin DNA01's like Pauly is rocking, but they are all too wide for the small Lancer without some panel work and she doesn't want to do anything more than a simple guard roll for obvious reasons.

    Anyway, hoping someone can throw out some names of thick spoked wheels similar to the ones mentioned that come in 8.5" width.

    Even better would be if someone has some wheels for sale here :)

    i think if the car's too low, it'll sit too far inside.. but if its just moderately low.. i think its ok..

    Varrstoen ES2.2.1 come in that exact size.

    Varrstoen ES1.1.1 come in 18x9 +40. This might fit? Not sure how extreme an 8.5 +45 is to compare.

    Thanks heaps guys. I've considered both the Emotion D9R and Evo 10 MR BBS but Liz isn't really a fan :( She likes the chunky spoke look.

    So far she likes the ST15 the best, so thanks for that Pauly, though the Varrstoen ES2.2.1 is a close second.

    Thanks paulie, ended up grabbing a set of 18x8 +43 S15 wheels :) The girlfriend didn't want to roll guards or lower the car, so figured it was better to play it safer with the fitment and go 0.5 inches narrower.

    Hopefully it looks OK, will upload pics when fitted.
