DO NOT BUY THE MOTEGI SP-5's!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THEY DO NO FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am SO fucking pissed off right now. Tire Rack guarantees fitment, and the fucking spokes don't clear the fucking calipers. Been staring at them for weeks with the new slicks, got all the way to the autocross location, got them out, got the car up - and they don't fit. What's worse, they hit enough that I'm not even sure that stock-legal spacers and longer studs will fix it, as I can only go 4mm worth of spacer and it looks like that might not be enough.

Even worse, I can't return them. I ordered my BFG's from Tire Rack, and talked to them about the wheels - which they guarenteed would fit. They would not, however, match the price I'd found elsewhere for almost $200 less, so I bought them from the other seller - who specifically states that fitment problems are the buyers responsibility.

I am pissed off beyond belief right now...

I don't know what I'm going to do with them. I don't know that I could sell them, if I did I'd take a loss, and the other option is extended studs and spacers, which would cost as much as I would lose selling the wheels.

They're a decent looking 5-spoke wheel with an insanely deep dish look (and they didn't offset the spokes enough to compensate for it), black center with polished lip.

They do clear in back FWIW, lol.

Not stock class legal.

EDIT AND UPDATE:

Someone here - note that it was someone here, and not anyone from any of the wheel/tire paces, LMAO - figured out that this wheel is a staggered fit; different rims front & rear, with a "deep dish" in the back. I was sent 4 rears - and it looks like I'm not the first to have this happen, either.

MOTEGI SP-5's are okay - just don't get 4 wheels with an "R" at the end of the part number!
