Vr4 Rims

Ok i am buying a pair of the 18 inch chrome 6 spoke vr4 rims. I have an SL. I am wondering how they are going to fit on there. Do you think there will be a fitment issue of any sort? I kinda see them prolly goign to stick out just a tad simply because the sl has more brake space than the vr4 does. Also will kumho 711 (225/40/18) fit nicely on these? My speedometer wont be thrown off or anythign will it?

The 18s will fit, but the 225s are going to be a bit thin on those rims.

Your 1996 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4 is the 92nd out of the 315 that were made that year. Only 21 of which are exactly identical.
