I sold my OEM Si rims on my Si coupe TW. Looking for new 18 x 7.5 (offset between 38 - 45 I believe should fit). I already got an excellent deal on the tires (Ecsta XS 225/40 18) so I need to order my wheels ASAP.

What do you guys think PF01 or SF? In terms of weight the PF01 are aprox 2lbs lighter, the SFs are 20% cheaper.

I like the SFs in gunmetal but no shop seems to have them in stock, only black available.

Why are you using a stupid skinny rim? Get at least 8" wide

I understand 8" could be an option. But why would you need more than 8" for a 225 tire? I don't want that weird stretched look on the tires and add unnecessary wight? The BC goes from 7.5" straight to 8.5" which is not cool.

You're right, on an 8" its fine, more than 8" is the problem. The BCs are only offered in 7.5 and 8.5 so its either a little chunky or stretched. I prefer chunky with some rim protection than stretched. Enkei's are available in 8 but I think I'll go with the BC in black and paint them gunmetal at some point. Don't really want to wait until the gunmetal is in stock.
