Friend's KMC Rockstars

Judt figured that I would post up a few pics of a guy that I knows element. He recently lifted it a smidge and put KMC Rockstars on it. I've seen in several post where people was asking about the look but the few threads that I seen, was only the car version of the wheel, so here ya.

If you have questions about set up just ask away and I will ask him for ya.

Looks cool from the side but I could never live with offset like that. I have yet to see an aftermarket wheel that looks like its suited to an element & not a Civic that has the correct offset to actually fit flush with our wheel wells.

I love the way the offroad Rockstars looks, but would never run an offset like that. To each his own though, I just posted so people would know what they looked like. If I'm not mistaken he is running adapters as well.

Good rugged look. I wouldn't like to be cleaning the side of my car all the time. My wheels set flush and I still have constant dirt on the lower half.

I didn't mean to sound so negative. I'm just frustrated that there are almost zero choices for the E that fit in the wells or at least flush that aren't really meant for the tuner market. Great if you have an SC but notsomuch for going for a more rugged look. I do have to say those are really nice wheels, do you know what size and make those tires are?

i love the offroad looking E's. that E looks great lik that. could really use the liftkit to make it look even better

Blackdogvan if you think about the the trucks and 4x4's that run these wheels or any offroad wheel and tire combo they all stick out. thats the problem with offroad setups.

Nope that's the problem with people not understanding offset when ordering wheels.

Nope, thats the problem with trucks designed to run very low offsets and passenger cars designed to run very high offsets. You cannot buy what they do not make, so you cannot find these style of truck rims in anything other than truck offsets (+22 offset vs. our +45). I believe that is what misdirection11082 is referring to.

A friend of mine had these wheels on a 2010 F150, and they did not stick out at all.

I was mostly referring to the smaller trucks and 4x4's around this way that all run way to wide a setup. You wouldn't believe some of the pushed out setups I see everyday. I saw a jeep today that I swear had 6 inches past his fenders
