IMO... Don't do it!!
These are not genuine ADV.1 No way the genuine ones cost $850. The description also alludes to them being fakes as well.
If u knew that already I suppose it's up to u, your car, your choice.

I wouldnt do it, tbh it is kind of a downgrade swapping BBS wheels for what Tim pointed out as fakes.

lol guys ... i know i have the gt rims and i know they are fake ones.
I just like to look at other rims but i liked the style of them ones.

Im most likely to keep my gt rims on .... but another question is anyone can help me
anyone know if i can get a wider tyre fitted on the gt rims for the back. Currently have 225/40/19

Thanks

should be able to fit 245/35 on there. But be aware that fitting wider tyres can cause the car to 'tram line' that is the car will want to follow any bumps and ruts in the roads surface. Not a big issue but i can notice going from 225 to 245

245/35/19 is only slightly larger rolling circumference than stock. Should be fine

You could sell your GT rims and buy Genuine Advans from the money you got. GT Rims are pricey.

Not advan pricey though. Would still need to fork out a few hundreds more.
