Ten x 16x6.5" -38 rims: $110 Gold Coast
Hi Guys,

I'm shifting all of my FTO 16x6.5 -38 rims, ten in total. I'm going for a mega brake upgrade (evo caipers) so need mega rims to clear.

The offset works brilliantly for the io - has been a magic rim combo for many many years and the inner lip sits where the stock 6" rim lip is.

Nice lightweight rim, much lighter than the stock so with a heavy mud tyre you are back to around the stock sprung mass.

There were eleven but I smashed one into a kerb at 90km/h split the outer bead but didn';t realise and drove on it for another 12,000kms :S
Otherwise the fto rims have been punished offroad no issues.

$110 for the lot

NOTE:
- two have been painted in the past and have flaking black paint
- running cheap aftermarket brake pads will require you to sand the outer pad down a tad as the clearance won't accept fatter than standard pads.

bargain

Even if they need a clean, $25 is a bargain, you may even get very close to that at a metal recycling for scrap....

Happy io

They are super light and

They are super light and strong, far better quality than the io standard rims but I guess given the car they were intended for is a high-end sports car not surprising.
off road they are lovely wheels and I will miss the road feel of them on the gravel but they simply won't clear the evo brakes i'm fitting - frankly only one rim i've forund so far will clear the calipers :S
