Are you happy with those Outlaw 52 wheels? Been wanting to get some feedback from someone that has them.

You can't buy happiness, but you can buy car parts which is kind of the same thing.

I'm happy to answer that question, but you'll need to take my answer with a grain of salt since my company manufactures them.

(I'm co-owner of fifteen52 )

But yes, I'm quite happy with them

I think they would look pretty good on a white car.

Will volunteer as a poster car, front or rear set and people could judge

Shipping would be to NY 13669.

Touché.

I have been thinking about getting a 2nd set of wheels and have looked at yours. Since this thread is about stance, here is my car currently. 16x6/7's with 21mm spacers on front and rear.



I'm trying to imagine what 17's would look like and what offsets I would need to fill the wheel wells without spacers.

Thoughts?

Um...thanks?

We have several sets on white 911s, so I can confirm your hunch is correct - they do look pretty good

Hey Brad, while you're here, I recently bought a set off you guys and was rather disappointed with the finish on them.

Mine are gold. There are areas of poor paint coverage on the inside of the petals that you can see silver through. Also a big shot of overspray on the curvature of the face beside the lug hole.

I'll snap pics. Is this normal fare for these?

So sorry to hear this. This design is a bit tricky to powder coat, but even with mistakes being possible, it sounds like the wheels should have never been shipped to you.

Please do snap a few pics of the questionable areas and send them to me at info@fifteen52.com. We'll certainly do what we can to make you happy.

Thank you! 205/50 on the front and 205/55 rear. There's more than a factory rake. But I like how it fills out the rear well.
