The black rim with whitewall is striking. TRX is a favorite of many. Hope your sale goes well.

congrats orange-1200, you may have the widest tires to ever fit under stock 1200 bodywork. It illustrates the importance of wheel offset. I figured that only 205s would fit under a sedan rear body.

Questions;
* Do you have any spacers on that wheel? It appears to have an excess of positive offset, and spacers would reduce that back to the centering +30 offset
* Do the tyres ever rub on the spring or the fender lip?

dish....it looks good from one angle

photos of dished wheels removed from a car look good, and on a car it typically looks good from only one angle,

but on a car on the street and without lining your camera up with that one good angle they look pretty rank and don't suit the body shape of the car

Thanks mate.. Yea it rubs when I have 2 people in the back or if I go over a big bump on the road.. No spacers on the back.. I am running a scorpion diff so a bit different than a 1200 diff.. I had to roll the rear lips and hammer the inner guard out as much as I could with a little heat.. I'm putting 14" rims on now so maybe a different outcome I dunno yet..

Nope. I have 225/45/15 under the rear of my 1200 ute.

Each to their own I guess. I prefer dished wheels from any angle compared to flat faced wheels.
