2016 Levorg GT. Brock B36 wheels
Finally got my new wheels on. Ideally would've gone for the original STi wheels but they seem to be as rare as rocking horse s**t here in the UK! After months of scanning the internet I settled on these Brock B36's and I have to say I'm more than over the moon with them. They're 18x8 with an offset of E45. This means they have filled the arches perfectly without the need for spacers.
Couldn't believe the name of the make because it's my surname - I now have wheels with my name on them!! IMG_8086.jpgIMG_8085.jpg

Nice boots
They fill those arches nicely, any rubbing, especially with a load on? Just need to drop it an inch now ;)

No rubbing at all. Which is probably why I won't lower it. I was tempted but there are times I do carry some weight at the back.

got myself some rota gravel in 18x8 ET44, fills the arches fine too :cool:

I reckon this should have been the factory ET, instead of that weird 55 :)

Yeah the 55 was soooo far into the arches! And while trawling through what seemed like thousands of wheels to find the right set, never once did I see a wheel with the ET55!
I like the look of a mesh grille but OEM or even aftermarket parts for the Levorg seem pretty rare here in the UK

The 55 offset is only made by OEM’s. I agree the wheels look so much better closer to the guard edges, improves the look of the stance from behind and the front as well. I like my OEM STi rims but would need spacers to achieve that look. Unfortunately wheel spacers aren’t legal here in Australia, definitely not in Victoria :(

Hey,
With the 44 offset do you have any rubbing, have you ever had people in the back to see if any issues? I’m looking at 42 offset however I have people in the back semi frequently.
Thanks

no issues whatsoever. however I'm driving alone.

42 offset will push the rim out a bit, but you'd need to check for rim width and tire sidewall and stuff.

I can't recommend anything here (as I usually don't drive with passengers). you could (maybe potentially why not) just get a single rim and a single tyre in the size you want, and see if it rubs, before you commit to the whole 4 corners ?

Went for it, no issues on 18x8 42p 225/45 with 250kg in the back.
