Is RC-T4 have a good effect on EVO8? What about Volk CN28? Thanx.

it's CE28N not CN28....

RC T4 are BEST for imprezas....

Try GEo's advice...since it's a balanced wheel

hmm.. i wonder if these rims do actually have an effect on the car..

not sayin anythin bad but its quite hard to try tell the difference right? and plus bandai namco already states that they don't have affect on the car and they created the game :lol: if they did they'd probaly have said they had made slight adjustments.. im not sure this is just my view ^_^

anyway all this work should be appreciated, it takes time nd thanks for the pictures now i can decide what rims will look best on my cars ^_^

Rims, believe it or not, do make a difference on a cars attributes in terms of acelleration and handling..

Mainly:
- Response in turning
- Speed loss
- traction before sliding
- priority in blocking (trust me on this one)
- Recovery from sliding
- slight accel loss/gain
- looks (obviously)

If u dont really believe me in this, try it urself, the differences are subtle, but once u FT ur dress up and stick with a set up long enough, try switching out to something different...

I recommend the Texas shotguns as a good comparison, since most people have RCII, TCII, T7's and other grippy wheels

MOST aero parts affect a cars attributes, but wether or not u notice the difference is entirely upto the driver

Probably to you, but there's no mistaking their performance. I slapped them onto my GT-R R32 and bam! I was able to break TA records more easily, particularly Yokohane. A friend of mine who also tried my R32 with these rims even went as far as to comment that it handled like an Evo!

Oh yes, they also did wonders for my R2 (it's much more battle worthy now :lol: )

Gotta say Shotguns (for all I know) are great, but they just look ugly - I was about to put them on my R2 when I did a WTF and went w/ the 57Fs.
  • Evo8: T6; yet to test this for Evo9, but presumably the same since it's a virtually identical frame (CT9A).
  • Z32: RC-T4s or T6s. 57F is great @720 and okay @740, but starts to slide at higher HPs under current setup (A2/DC).
  • Enkei RC-T4: Took them off my Z33 cuz of overslide. Works well on Z32
  • Yokohama T6: I recommend for Evo8, Evo9, Z32. Dunno if it's gonna go really well with the 33s or GDBs; I just tried them, so don't bother pointing out if it already was plain-as-day.

i think the RC T4 will make your car slide further than the usual.
less, less grip. i tried it on my gdbc, and oh boi, its not gripping well.
for me, the best rims for the imprezas are the Enkei RPF1s..

Amen to T4s, but it's the only one I've really run w/ the 350 that handles okay.

Took them off my WRX-F for just that reason, gonna try T6s in grey; total setup: light blue, white-blue flame2, blue neon, grey/white wheels, carbon-type bonnet+wing.

T6: Evo8, Z32
Gabbs: Evo8 (to a point), Evo5
RC-T4: Z32, Z33, GDB-F - both at lower HP to minimize overslide

It's probably been asked already (and I don't wanna go time-traveling), but what rims are recommended for the E9?
