View Full Version : 18x8 and DF210's
06-19-2008, 01:49 AM
Tanabe DF210 springs and Tenzo Type M wheels 18x8" w/ +45 offset.
Springs are only a day old, so they will settle more but I don't expect any rubbing issues.

Mmm I still like those Tenzos but I didn't care for how the spokes stuck out a bit over the lip. If I had a black xD I totally would've gotten those wheels for it though :)
Lookin good! What else do you have planned?

I don't know the wheel weight by themselves but i can tell you shipped weight with tires mounted was 49lbs. Not really a light weight wheel.

that looks hot !!
new wheels and lowered before the temp tag came out the window now thats nice lol

I like to plan ahead :rofl:
Springs and wheels were ordered before I even bought it. left dealership and installed springs. I waste no time! lol

it was 40lbs PER wheels?!?! dang that's heavy.....
06-20-2008, 08:26 AM
sorry for all the questions....haha but those are 225 40 ?
DAMN they look sweet!can i ask you where you got the set from? wheelsnext?

yeah, tires are 225/40/18
the 49lbs was wheel, tire and packaging but yeah I would say they are still a fairly heavy wheel.
Got them from Element Motorsport in the sponsored sales thread. Definitely recommend them, great communication and fast shipping.

loooks very clean i must say.
49 lbs is very heavy but as long as it looks good it makes up for part of it.

lol, might have to sell my NF210s now, those DFs are sexy!
07-21-2008, 07:09 AM
I was thinking of getting DFs mysel actually, but... no money! Maybe I can trade my NFs for DFs :) :rofl:

I've been very happy with the DF's. It's a great looking drop and ride comfort is nice too. I can't give too much of a vs. stock comparison though, was only on stock springs for about 10 minutes. :P
Since they've settled and I added audio, I'm tucking about 1/4" of tire in the rear.
07-21-2008, 11:41 PM
is it an even drop though, im starting to dislike the drop the NFs give in the front, they ride higher than the rear.
07-22-2008, 03:09 AM
the DF's seem to be just the opposite, they sit lower in the rear than the front. Not bad looking at all but you can tell when you look close.
07-22-2008, 05:34 AM
My NFs are lower in the rear than they are in the front. Did you get them installed right pickled? Thats just strange.
07-22-2008, 03:12 PM
boy, i must have been tired... i really meant that the springs ride lower in the rear, and higher in the front. i would prefer it the other way if i had to choose something other than level. the DFs appear to be more level than the NFs. I like the drop the NFs give the rear, but wish the front was lower. heh, maybe i will be pick up the DFs as well and just put those in the front to achieve the perfect ride height, lol...

Looks very good. Thanks for posting. I have been interested in these wheels before they came out and good to see them on an actual car instead of a lonely wheel pic. Car looks amazing too.

I picked up a pair of the upgraded tC Enkei 18" rims in the 45 offset...I shouldn't have a problem with that offset right? I have the RS1 package that comes with the TRD springs...Thanks...By the way, you ride looks killer...

I like that setup. Looks really clean. Now you need some tint.
