OH 17x8 +45 Limited Edition Lime Green Enkei RPF1

Category: Wheels & Tires
Price: $875
Private or Vendor Listing: Private Listing
Part Fits (you may select multiples): Others, Series I, Series II
Location (US State/Canada/Int): OH
Item Condition: Used

Name: Steve
Location: Canton, OH 44706
Contact: PM
Price: $875 before shipping

Size: 17x8 +45 Square - 5x114.3

Trade for other lightweight wheels: 17x8 square, or 17x9 square.
RPF1s, Kosei K1-TS, Buddy Club QF, 949 6ulr, Kosei K4R, TRMotorsports C1 or M1, or other light wheels in a 45 or better offset.
Wheels can be beat up, curbed, whatever, as longs as the tires still hold air and they're not out of round.

Included in my price is the cost to get the tires dismounted from a reputable tire place that won't do any damage to the wheels, plus packing materials.

Story:
Alright, I jumped on these wheels from a local to experiement with some different tires for autocross and I wanted a lightweight wheel.

I found these, thought the green was cool, and figured it would serve my needs well.

So, I started looking into these things further: The original boxes state that these were Green from Enkei, not powder coated after the fact.

These were originally a special limited edition bought through Oakos Automotive: (they're still on the sight, but I spoke with Jon at Oakos, saying these would be out of stock forever)

http://www.oakos.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?

Now, these are in great condition. these have been mounted and used, but now that I know how much a of a limited run these are I feel really guilty about running / ruining these.

So, I'm looking to trade these for some rpf1s in worse condition honestly. 17x8 or 17x9 +45 square set ups. I'd like gold, but again, these are a 2nd set of wheels for autocross only, so I really don't care too much. Some cash on your end would be required considering the great condition that these are in.

Tires: There are 4 tires on these. the front tires are shot, the rears are 245/40r17 Kumho ASX all seasons, they're right before the wear bars.

I'd be willing to ship: shipping from 44706 - not to be rude, but you're capable of getting your own shipping quote.
Each wheel is 15.6lbs. plus packing material. boxes are roughly 19x19x10







And sorry for upside down label:



And laid in front of my S2000:

Why has no one taken these yet? I like them, just debating on wether they would look good on a ti grey or not.

Yea, maybe. I might be able to get my buddy with the black 8 to come back over and we can snap some pics.

The fitment in the front and rear were absolutely fine as far as clearance goes. My buddy's 8 is lowered on Teins also, no problems there.

However, before I do this, are you really interested or just sort of curious?

I was looking for a set of RPF01's not long ago. Still could use a set for autocross, track days and such.

I'll keep my eye out, but things are a bit tough at the moment. So it'd be a while before I could get them.

I am curious as to how they'd look on a VR though.. Haha.

I could probably take pics of them on a VR, but the tires are getting taken off this weekend and I'm probably going to strip them and paint them red for my own autocross use for the 2nd half of the season.

I measured the contact patch between these and a set of 17x9 255/40 tire and the 245 on the 17x8 is only about .25" more narrow, but the sidewall is not as vertical. So, I'm probably just going to try 245 on 17x8s compared to 255 on 17x9s.
