Enkei rpf1

Hiya 

im about to buy some enkei rpf1'a for my r33 Gtr and was going to order them in 18x10.5 et 15, after reading a few threads on here it looks like you have to stretch a 265 tyre to stop any scrubbing without rolling the guards.

The other option I thought of was to get the 18x9.5 et 15 and maybe put 10mm spacers on. Has anyone got any pictures of this size fitted to a r33 Gtr to see what the arch gap is like? 

Or can anyone shed some more light on fitment on the 10.5's 

my car is on tein coilovers and isn't sat too low 

Any help is really appreciated

cheers

Tell the guard roller to take his time. 

If he has too many jobs on, tell him to make yours the last in the day (with an extra 6 pack if he does the job in small increments and not crack the paint).

I rolled the guards on 4 cars myself, all you need is a heat gun, guard roller and lots of patience. Unless the guards were repainted poorly, it won't crack (including aluminium guards).

But, if you don't want to, just get the 9.5" wheels and 265 wide tyres (forget about spacers).

I put RPF1's in 10.5x18 +15 on my 33 and stuck with the 265 sections.  Some brands run a little narrower at the tread however the Bridgies and Yokies I've had on it don't seem to be stretched at all, I asked a few tyre places about this and they said it's perfectly fine on that rim.  The Semi's run even wider as a 265 so sit perfectly.  I have no issue at all with the 265 on the 10.5.
