**EDIT 12/22/13 - I ordered a single set. I didn't want to wait. PM me for details, glad to help. No more group buy, unless someone wants to pick it up.**

I'm ordering a set of ToyBox 48 Hethel Wheels through one of the site sponsors and would like to gauge interest for a potential group buy.

ToyBox 48 Hethel Wheels (single-piece, fully forged wheel) - Prices by size with offsets

Front
-7x16 et22, 5.33Kg = $750
-8x16 et22.5, 6.10Kg = $795

Rear
-8x17 et35, 6.2 kg = $950
-8.5x17 et22, 6.65Kg = $975
-9x17 et7, 6.69Kg =$1025

Color availability: Black, Silver and Gold (have a 1st and 2nd color choice)

BBK Clearance: These wheels clear all of the factory BBKs, the AP BBK and the 308BBK.

Payment: A $1000 deposit is required that becomes non-refundable once availability is confirmed and 100% is required before the wheels ship from Japan. If the requested size/color is not available the deposit will be refunded in full.

They have other sizes as well.

I'd be in if I can buy one front and one rear wheel. I have half a set already.

You might want to clarify if the wheels clear the AP Racing 240/260 front calipers or the AP Racing 4-wheel BBK. I have the latter with the 315/330 rotors and larger calipers and clearance was tight with the Team Dynamics 1.4 wheels (in the front). Much better clearance with the RAC Monolites.

Very clean looking wheels. I like the simple 5-spoke design.

I’m trying not to be in the market for a second set or rims this winter. Would likely be interested when spring/summer approaches, but if the group buy discount is worth it I might be willing now.

Tempted to buy two 8.5x17 and one 7x16 instead of one 8x17 and one 7x16.

Color would be black.

The 9x17 is lighter than the 8.5x17?

LOVE these wheels. Not quite sure if the offset of the 17x9 is correct though.

To me an ET7 would poke WAAAAY outside the guards.

EDIT: ~50mm further out than standard.

Will confirm these.


Edit: Weights have been corrected on first post. All offsets are correct. Sizes wider than 17x8 on the rear will require widening the rear clam.
