I've seen one of those. I pity anyone that confuses that thing for a vibrator.

Does anybody happen to know how these will fit with the Superspeed RF03RR? The wheels would be 18x8.5 ET45. There are a few posts here, someone using the RF03RR's with the ProdigyWerks CR4 calipers, and someone discussing the RF05RRs with the Macans... Their website says it offers "excellent big brake clearance"... Since my current wheels are already 18x8.5 ET35, they're pretty much flush, and I have a feeling using even 5mm spacers to fit the these will make them poke out too much for my liking. Which would push me towards getting another new set of wheels.

Won’t clear without a spacer. I had the RF03RR in et45 and the spokes closest to the hub would contact the caliper. It's been a while but I remember even a 10mm spacer was really close so I used a 15mm.

Thanks. ET45 wheels with a 15mm spacer would poke just as much as my current ET35 wheels with a 5mm spacer, so looks like those wheels wouldn't solve my (potential) poke issue...

My konigs have silly amount of clearance with the PP calipers, and don’t break the bank while still being much better quality that cheap cast reps.

Are Superspeed regarded as as cheap cast reps? Legitimately don't know lol. My current rims are. It was like $540 for the set of wanna be Volks.

At this point though, if they poke too much for my liking, I'm just going to say fuck it and get a set of RSE10's. Confirmed fitment, no spacers required.

No superspeeds seem good, I just don’t think the pricing is as good for US buyers.

Ahh.

Not sure what they are in Canada, but CariD has them for under $900 for the set, which doesn't seem too bad to me.

I purchased the RF03RR directly from Super Speed last year and they shipped to my door in TX for $880 USD. If you email info@super-speed.ca they are reasonably responsive. Maybe the RF05RR offers better brake clearance?
