We can send you a set....but 18 inch on NC is miserable for street use in my experience. Customers who have done it, have done it for 'looks' and usually regret it later. We have run 18x10 for racing our supercharged NC and that works out well for racing, but around town I switch that car back down to 17 inch to improve the ride.
I will add that your signature notes on suspension are telling me that you don't have near enough suspension for 245mm tires.
I'm planning on sticking with 17x8 on my car, unless I end up going forced induction at some point in the future, in which case I might jump to 17x9. I was just curious for the other folks whether it was a viable alternative to 17x9 wheels.
Unfortunately, I'm still torn between the Hypergrams and Ultraforms, though. The fact that you have two different great-looking, very affordable lightweight wheels with virtually identical specs doesn't make this sort of decision any easier, you know!
I was really leaning to the Ultraforms after the latest pictures folks posted of those, but then that last picture of the Hypergrams on the Copper Red car has me leaning back that way again.
