Question Konig Hypergram Question

https://www.discounttire.com/buy-whe...ergram/p/47833

Hey guys, just wanting to get confirmation that these wheels would fit with any issues with my Evo 8. Think any spacers would be required? I wouldn't think so, but hey, that's why I'm here to ask. Currently running Rota D2 18x9 ET30 w/245/40/18 tires that I'll likely transfer over to these wheels. Been wanting to get a different wheel for a while and liked these and the price. Any input would be appreciated, thanks.

The wheel youre looking at is very modest in size & offset (18 x 8.5 +35)

Should have no issues running those 245/40 tires. No rolling required

The only issue is, its very likely going to need a front spacer. What size, is a guess unless you can do a test fit or find another soul who has installed them & knows

Konig builds these wheels for brake clearance. I doubt you'll need a spacer. You can always call them and ask.

The 18x10.5 +25's had room for dayyyyysss. I think someone else on here is running the 9.5 +35. Konig designs the for caliper clearance, I'm sure you're good to go.

thanks - i reached out to konig.

the 18x9.5 +25s seem close based on the thread above, not sure if they'll have 10mm to give extra clearance to calipers.

Then run a 10mm spacer in the front . You'll need to anyways for a 265/35r18 to clear the strut with a 35 offset wheel.

i'm clearing my coilovers now by about 1/4" with 265/35-18s on my 18x9.5 +34.

i'll have to check caliper clearance as you said though. no response from konig. when it gets closer to time i'll just have to visit a shop that stocks them and check the clearance

03 Evo 8. Just went with what I initially was looking at, 18x8.5 ET35. I'll be saving about 6lbs per wheel, but I'll try to take measurements to confirm.

Konig Hypergram 18x8.5 et35, 18.0lbs, saving over 7lbs per wheel from old setup!

looks great. shame they didn't fit without a spacer. wonder if the 18x9.5 +35 will need a spacer, +25 is too aggressive

5mm spacers on the fronts

So wheels are on, spacers on the front, and I'm very happy with how the car looks and feels. Can definetley tell a difference with the weight loss. My only concern now is the count of full turns I get with my lug nuts. I've read online that 5mm is safe on the stock studs, but I'm only getting a hair over 4 full turns torqued down. Do I need to get extended studs? I wanna be safe and say I should , input?
