I am thinking about selling my black 18 inch i-forged swifts for a set of 19 inch i-forged rev's in race gold. the wheels are near perfect with only a few slight blemishes that happened at the tire shop while they were mounting my tires. The tires are brand new pilot sports in the rear and about 90% tread left on the front set. the rear wheels have custom made 5mm hubcentric spacers. I had them made so that I could fit 10 x 18 inch wheels on the rear and get a staggered fitment with a 2 inch lip. I paid about $3800 for the set about 9 months ago. If anyone is interested send me a pm with an offer. Thanks!! if you are interested in photos please let me know. I will be happy to e-mail them to you, I am having trouble posting them in my thread.

Man those wheels are hot. So what size tire can you fit in the rear with stock lip/fender and your 18x10 rim?

Thanks!!

265/40 if your car is lowered. 275 or 285 if it is left stock.

No offense but you dudes that like the black wheels are....well, let's just say I don't get it. Maybe it's a monochromatic thing like in the 80's or something. Nothing looks as good as chrome on black - the stock wheels are close but man, black looks second hand or like a kid boy racer or something. Again - for clarity - NO Offense intended here - I'm just curious about this. even if you like'em now, the black wheels will be very boring in a year or so. Wheels make the look - why camouflage them? Plus it makes the wheel/tires look too small.

no offense taken!!! I just think that the blk on blk gives the car a stealth look. I am not big into chrome because I feel that it takes away from the sporty look of the car. My wife has 22 inch chrome rims on her Navigator. I don't think I would ever buy chrome for anything beside an SUV. Well, maybe for a Maebach an S600 or an RR Phantom

Hey fair enough - thanks for sharing opinions in a positive manner. I hear ya on the stealth look, I just find it inconsistent given the extent of chrome on the front end - or 'did you black the grille out too? I've read some guys have done that on the forum.
Are your windows tinted slightly? I've been considering that myself - if so, is the windshield tinted slightly too?

What percent tint is it and do you know if there are legal issues with the front being tinted? Looks real good in the pics - just the right amount - not over done.

It looks like 35%. Front tinting can be a problem in some states.

What size are the front and rear wheels? And what size are front and rear tires? *Any* rubbing, any where?

I'm assuming the iforged wheels for sale are 2 or 3 piece. If they are, you can always powdercoat, chrome, polish, or whatever finish you want the centers. :D

The tint is 35% and no I have never had any problem with anything. My car does have a black exterior but a tan interior which may not make the windows seem quite as dark.

the front tires are the stock sice but the rears are 265/40/18. I had 275/40/28's on the rear and my car is lowered. When I went over a serious bump with people riding in the back it would rub the outside of the tire ever so slightly. Now that I have 265's on I have no problems.

They are two piece forged wheels which are lighter and stronger then stock. Mine are painted gloss black from I-Forged but I am sure you could get them painted, dipped or powdercoated anywhere that does that sort of thing.
