Mine are ET43 and I run 15 mm spacers, though I believe 10 mm should work too.

mehran05 just sold a set of ET28 18x8 Volutions (==> HERE <==)

I thought about jumping on those (love those wheels) but promised myself that if I spring for a new set of wheels they have to be lightweight (and the Volutions are definitely not).

ET28's fit R's just fine without spacers (in fact Heico says the ET28 version is the "R-version" of the Volution V's). If you're lowered or a have factory freak low springs, you may need to roll your fenders though.

If you're willing to go 19's, there was a fellow selling 19" Volutions off of his C30 in SoCal end of last year, might still have them for sale (==> HERE <==)

Thanks for the lead. I thought about 19s but I'm concerned about the turning radius. It already sucks as it is.

Hah, it's a battleship no matter what kind of shoes you put on. Just get used to 3 point turns everywhere, including parking spots.

This might help with the offset,
I have 19X8 ET 38 volutions and I have to have 15MM spacers to clear the calipers.
Just had them straightened and rebalanced, thinking of selling them.

The +28mm Volution V's were meant specifically for the R application. Any of the higher offset variants will require spacers to clear the brake calipers.

Yep. ARMANDST5 - if you do find a nice set that requires spacers, IPD's 15mm H&Rs are on sale, $85 for a pair (don't forget the longer lugs too).
