Nice!

What offsets did you use for the prototypes pictured? Just wondering as mentioned above how the concavity would change from say the 22ET to 45ET on the rears?

The wheels pictured are 19x8.5 ET35 and 19x9.5 ET33, with 245/35/19 and 275/30/19 Nitto NT-05's. Different wheel molds are used to cast ET22 and ET45 but the change in concavity and weight will be minimal.

I think there's a bigger demand for 18" anyway unless the wheel are light weight then people will go for the 19" but a tunner wheel shouldn't be any bigger. With that being said I'll take these in 18"

^^ Size demand for the most part differs by region/country, and it is definitely a seasonal issue. In either case we're aware that both 18" and 19" are highly popular around here.... so it will definitely come around sooner or later
