Fit and finish are up to Kosei's reputation for first quality light weight wheels, except for the color.
These wheels fit BMW E36/E46/ Z3 fronts as well. Some 255/40, and all 245/45x17 tires will need a 5mm spacer. I used a 13mm spacer on both front and rear to give an effective 32mm offset.
This wheel is not "Light Gray". The outside color looks like charcoal with burnt on permanent brake dust. The inside bowl of the wheel is what most people would describe as light gray. That makes it look oddly two tone, because you see most of the inside of the wheel as well when the wheel is mounted on the car. It also comes with a drug dealer style looking red valve stem. Yuck. Why is every 17x9 from any brand Tire Rack offers only in this permanently burnt on brake dust charcoal they call "light gray" when the other sizes are available in good old normal silver?
