if rajins are same specs and width, then MR for sure. If rajins are 9.5 and +15, then Rajins for sure

went from the gsr enkei to mr bbs to now running enkei raijin 18x9.5+15 and if I were to do it again I would have stayed with the mr bbs because they are the lightest and noticeably quicker and with 9.5+15 wheels you have to roll your fenders (more $ and if not done properly can devalue your vehicle -I got mine done proper thankfully) and they just feel a little too chunky...from my research and experience, the ideal wheel size upgrade for the x is 18x9+25...gl!

they you are either:
A. not lowered
B. running silly - camber
c. running skinny (stock) tire.


The +15 with a normal camber, lowered running anything close to 265/35 will rub without fender mods 100% of the time.

Yes I am not lowered and still running the stock tires but plan to bump it up to 255s with gtworx springs and a roll in the rear and I should have no issue
