If you have Drift R's on your goat can you tell me what size rims and tires your running. Im looking to put a set of 18'' black ones on a black 05. I want them to just bolt on with no fender rolling. Also where you purchased your rims because ive been lookin around and there very difficult to locate. Thanks

I've got 19/8s up front and 19/9s in back and run 245/275 rubber with no rub and four people in the car. Got the wheels from Group A Tire and had American Tire match Tire Rack for tires (General UHP). Get comps. all day on the look. Great set up.

+1 buds46 and I have the same set up except I run Toyo Proxes 245-35-19 front and 275-35-19 rear.

And goodluck in finding them! I bought mine back in March 05 from Group A.

I run 18x8 front and 18x9 rear. Got them off a member on this site. 245/40/18 fronts
275/35/18 rears
Currently trying to get 275/40/18's to fit in the rear, I like the look better.

I've only been able to find 18x8's no 18x9's so good luck on a staggered set.

Does anyone know where to get these wheels from??? Group A doesn't have any more and they don't know when more will come in to stock.

The only way to buy the 9" is used from what I've been told.You can the 8" wide no problem.Group A is the main supplier,if they don't have them,then nobody does from what Jeff told me!

When I had mine, I was running 18x8/9. P245/275 Mastercraft Avenger. They rubbed when accelerating & turning aggressively. I still haven't rolled my fenders. That's been over a year ago.

I found 18x8's down the street from my house at Discount tire. Try them!
I don't think their as rare as some may think or like to mislead. But the 18x9's I think are pretty much unheard of now.

I just bought a used set of Drift-R's, 18x8 and 18x9 with black centers for $975 shipped to my door.

They came with Kuhmo Excesta MX, 245's front and 275's in the rear. It looks like the previous owner had rubbing on the driver side fender but, so far, no rubbing for me.

Good luck trying to find a set. I was looking for 6 months before I finally found mine.:)
