I'm not a BIG wheel Little tire guy,  But those look like they are very nice.  Do they give painting instructions?  I'm thinking it was ABS plastic that's hard to paint.  I heard of guys dying ABS for a cool look.

That looks great, I prefer the set up that UTL gave, that way the disc will also rotate with the wheel while the caliper stays wherever we leave it. The ABS also great because it will survive the fine tuning process of plug and unplugging.

But there's something off with the 3/4 profile, but I could not point my finger yet...

Looztik, what happen to the rear wheels ?

That looks great, though that rear wheel sure does seem to have a lot of positive camber.

Just finish up my RX7 modification.... With this RPF-1 Enkei wheels on really brighten up the whole process.
I personally like the UTL quality and the detailing. Is very easy to install and paint on it. Price wise, i think is ok (compare to those reproduction resin wheels).
The down side is just limited size available. It will be great is UTL can produce some wheel in 19"-20" scale..... that will be HOT.

Here are my contribution.....

Can't wait for something new to arrive, especially the 21 inch Euro tuning wheels ...
I have two sets of the current 18 inch wheels ... the wheels don't even fit over the standard disc brakes, even on a 1/19 scale Bburago model you have to replace the original disc brakes with the ones supplied in the pacK ... and to be honest the tires are way too high, so unfortunately at the moment I have eight wheels collecting dust.

The workmanship and fitting looks really good, but we need taller wheels and lower profile tires ... possibly even staggered fitment with wider wheels at the back.
