    So I finally found a wheel I like. Its off the shelf with the finish, offset, weight and design I like but there's 1 problem. Konig offers 2 finishes for this wheel (bronze and silver) but the rear they will ONLY finish it in bronze. They won't finish that wheel in the silver finish they offer FOR that specific wheel which is really dumb. Whats worst is that you can't even buy it for extra $$$ or order a blank. Anyone here that can help out an request the rear to be done in silver? All you need to do is PM them on facebook so they can get enough "interest". It doesn't make any sense to me at all.

    Try contacting the guys at getyourwheels.com.

    I think they stock Konigs, and they can refinish them however you want.

    Hi,
    I’m sort of in same boat, but with Rota. They need min order before they can order it.

    Either run 8.5" wide square or calculate if a 9.5" +25 will fit, or get them painted to match. All of those options will be likely faster than expecting Konig to offer what you want.

    I thought I read someone having 10.5s in the rear with a et25 offset, and it fit just fine. So I would think that 9.5s with an et25 would fit just as well.

    He’s bagged so camber helps him run a lower offset.

    Yeah but paying an extra $300 for finishing the wheel they offer in that finish is retarded. I’m standing my ground. I can honestly wait.

    hmm...good point. Still, I recall someone with a et25 offset and I thought I remember it being on coilovers. I'll check back in if I find it.

    If I can find an manufacturer that can do a 8.5 ET 30 and 9.5 ET 35 that’s great but worst case I run 8.5 squared. They have videos of the concavity of the wheel so that’s what peaked my interest

    Yeah, I was initially looking at konig too, but the ampliforms or rennforms. These are offered in the specs you're looking for.

    Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    That person is on coil suspension and running et23 on 9.5" width wheels. So I think et25 will fit.
