I have been searching hi and low for different wheel manufacturers to find a staggered set of 18" wheels for my Saab. I came across this site the other day and i thought i would share it with those of you who are interested! Im liking the KT4 wheel the best but the others are also available in 5x110mm!
Has anyone heard of this wheel manufacturer and care to post some feedback??

I have exchanged a couple emails with Keskin and have gotten the following prices: (not too bad)
17x8 30mm - $295.00
17x9 30mm - $319.00
18x8.5 30mm - $385.00
18x9.5 25mm - $421.00

Im a big fan of aftermarket wheels, therefore its been a mission looking for some nice tuner wheels in the 5x110mm bolt pattern other than Ronal and BBS! 8)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

i was just curious if there would be wheel rubbing with those kind of width's? i coulda swore that i remember reading that 17 X 8's either rub or barely fit, 17 x 9 is huge though would love the grip those would add, but i have never heard of them though.
Coops....Im currently running 18x7.5's with 215/40 tires and get no rubbing! The front rubbed a couple of times trying to back into a parking spot while going over a speed bump with the wheels turned all the way! :lol: O yeah and the car is lowered 1.75".
I did some measuring a while back and found thati the widest wheel i could throw back there would be a 18x9 25mm offset, it will be fairly close to the gas tank pipe but dont think it will rub! If it does rub i will take that gas tank out, we dont need it anyway! 8)

hey guys just heard back from Keskin, they said if there is enough interested generated they are willing to do a group buy at reduced prices! He will be sending me the group buy pricing in couple of days!

Dasaabguy, thats impressive that your running 18x 7.5's, was unsure of the max size we could go. Found out yesterday when getting new tires mounted on my stock 15 3 spoke that one of my rims is bent, will be buying rims in the spring time and using the stockies as winter tires. 7.5's definatly do sound good though.

To see a wide range of rims and how they look on your car go to www.tires.com and click on one the the links. Then click on interactive wheel desgin(interactive something don't remember it all). Then all you do is pic your car and color and it gives you all the rims for your car. Sadly though they only have them for 9-3 and 9-5.

Well those Keskin wheels are nice but still out of my budget! I found these Dip Wheels that are reasonable $650 and have a nice deep look to them. They are 18x7.5 with a 40mm offset. Has anyone heard of this company or know of what kind of quality their wheels are?

Never heard of that company before but those wheels look really nice. I love the deep dish look. My dad dropped all 4 of my wheels when I took them off this winter and scratched every one of them :evil: Sooo, either I am gonna be in the market for some new ones or I am gonna get them all repaired. I love those ATP Razze 5's. If only they came in a hyper black or black chrome.

Your brother in black verts :wink: ,

not that im saying mine are huge or anything but they are pretty wide, 17 x 8 and lowered with no rubbing whatsoever...so no worries about 8 inches wide
