Volk CE28SL Fitment Clarification & Pic Request. VENDORS CHIME IN

So I am seriously thinking about ordering a set for my RS. Some background. I have had 18x9.5 +22 and +15 CE28Ns in the past and the +22 did not clear the Brembos on the CT9A, it did on the EVO X... confirmed on a friend's Evo X after test fitting them.

After comparing the sizes and offsets offered on this version, the CE28SL, vs CE28Ns, it appears Rays altered the design of the face more than the original. It now offers a Face 4 at +22 when previously the only way to get it was to go the largest size which was 18x10.5 +18. More interesting is that the +22 now clears the Brembos on the CT9A according to the caliper clearance chart on on their official website.

Given what I just described above in both paragraphs, the ideal set up for a CT9A would be to go with 18x9.5 +22 for the fronts and +35 for the rears. This would give you the same face of the wheel and not having to alter the rear fenders so much due to the more conservative offset in the rear.

Another odd thing I noticed is that no 17 inch model regardless of offset seem to clear the CT9As Brembos according to their chart, so anyone wanting to go with this size would have to run a spacer. Whether this is an error on their site, it is unknown. I have contacted a couple of vendors and have received conflicting information.

So the magic questions now as the ambiguity and lack of confirmation is killing me. I would like to order a set and have it here by spring.

First question: does the 18x9.5 +22 clear the calipers up front and can someone post a real pic of this new Face 4 to show the concavity and lip size of this wheel?

Rays site says the 18x9.5 +22/+35 features a Face 4 in a short rim (SS) and no longer a long (L ) rim. The short rim has a smaller lip as compared to the long rim which is a deeper rim. A picture would solve the ambiguity. The only pic I can find online is the 18x10.5 which has the Face 4 but in the long rim (L).

Second question: Can someone confirm caliper clearance on the 17 inch sizes so we here can decide which size to go with.

VENDORS PLEASE CHIME IN IF YOU HAVE CONFIRMATION ON THIS INFO. IT CAN ONLY HELP YOUR SALES...

Here are the sizes and faces taken from their site for this wheel. I did not list the caliper clearance guide but here is the link to their chart.

https://www.rayswheels.co.jp/product...n&wheel=CE28SL

17x7.5 +48 (F1)
17x8.0 +45 (F2)
17x9.0 +10 (F3L) / +22 (F3) / +45 (F2) / +63 (F1)
17x9.5 +12 (F3L) / +28 (F2L)

18x8.0 +48 (F2)
18x8.5 +35 (F2) / +45 (F2) / +52 (F2)
18x9.0 +45 (F2)
18x9.5 +15 (F3L) / +22 (F4) / +35 (F4) / +45 9F3)
18x10.0 +20 (F3L) / +40 (F4)
18x10.5 +15 (F4L) / +22 (F4L)

^ these have to be a different offset. i talked to someone else just now who has an evo 8, and the 18x9.5 +35 CE28SL's do NOT clear his calipers.

that said though, it looks like they would clear the X calipers, which would be roughly 30mm further away from the center of the wheel with no more poke. would still be tight though.

Those are +22. Sorry for any confusion, I thought you asked for pictures and confirmation that +22 cleared.

Well if it helps here's fitment of the +22 on a normalish evo rear. No real camber either.

not too bad. what size tire? i'm interested in the ce28ns for the better fitment, but with the autoxing and hpdes on 265/35s i think i'd wind up pulling and relocating the bumper bolt, on top of rolling (which was already done).

Just go with the +28 for standard CE28. They sit 6mm further in than these. You can see these sit flush at +22 so another 6 mm further in will make them even better. Remember what MinusPrevious said in the other thread, if they sit too far in they will rub as well. Even if you find a set of +34 they will rub on the inside with a 265. And thus having to run a small spacer which would be at smallest a 3 mm. Putting you at +31 for effective offset. So at this point it becomes a 3 mm difference to +28. Camber adjustment will take care of the rest. See my point?

that's what i'm leaning towards. finding +28s isn't that easy either. is the face the same at least?

there's a decent amount of poke on those +22s, so only 6mm more isn't going to help much. i run -2 degrees of camber in the rear which helps, probably will be close. i just don't want to have to pull or relocate the bumper tab. those are my main concerns.
