Well, just ordered these TC4's for my GR86. Pretty sure these lugs will work, but want to confirm. Since offset is +50, and I think factory is +48, they'll be slightly more sunk into the wheel well, correct? What size spacers would you guys recommend to get closer to flush? I wanted to keep factory specs (apart from offset) because I like the handling characteristics as they stand now. With that, I could only find these in +50.

1. Is there a possible offset on the aftermarket wheels to make a wheel flush without using spacers?

2nd question is if the wheel is wider, but offset is same as factory, will they both sit the same on the car, as in same distance from the fender?
With these wheels in this spec, they only come in +50. Otherwise I'd order the lower offset. Not sure with the second part of your question, you could visualize it on willitfit.com (I think that's the site).

If I do spacers, I'd be going for the best quality available to avoid issues, so eibach was already a consideration.

I do want to change the offset by a little bit, I don't want to run wider wheels/tires at the moment. If I do go wider in tire it'll just be to 225, which I'd do a lower sidewall on to compensate for the stretch of the factory setup.

Looks like these are gonna have to be special ordered actually. I was misinformed that evasive stocks all their listed wheels, but when I reached out to confirm they said "I would never stock wheels in that size" and when I asked them if Advan had them in stock, they said "I highly doubt it, we'll have to email japan and wait for them to check inventory which will probably take 3 or more days" so probably looking at 1.5 months or more 🙃

Looks like it will be an awesome setup, be a little cautios with those aluminum lug nuts, they tend to be on the softer side and are known to bend and even break sometimes (ask me how i know...) Just make sure you aren't using an impact gun on them and double check they are torqued often.

Side note to you having to order those wheels, a month and half is almost laughable. Wheels not in stock that are ordered from Japan are typically 8-12 months if you're lucky, unless the guys at Advan are wizards and can turn out wheels that quickly. I'd personally consider seeing if you can find something that will work that's already state side.
I was strictly going off estimates from another website, fingers crossed that they're just in stock in Japan since I imagine 18x7.5 isn't THAT uncommon there vs here, but I could be wrong. Should know what's up by the end of the week 🤞. And thanks for the heads up on the lugs, I saw they were "duralumin" alloy, figured there wasn't much more merit to it than normal but oh well.

I'm a sucker for 5 spokes and advan makes my favorites, so that part wasn't hard. Just wish they offered white in this spec but sadly no. Might get em powder coated, we'll see if the gunmetal grows on me.

Where did you order these from?
Evasivemotorsports.com, but tbh based on my interaction with them I might recommend elsewhere just based on friendliness of customer support 🤷‍♂️ I saw them listed on several retailers, I was just told that evasive stocks but apparently not this size range as per my previous comment

Nice. I'm just waiting to secure a car in my desired color before I pull the trigger. I gotta say, waiting 6 months for wheels is not ideal.
Yeah, wish I would've gone for wheels earlier but I wanted to scope the used market before pulling the trigger on new. Had the car since March, and the OEM wheels aren't ugly by any means, but they aren't what I want forever and I knew that from the jump
