Real lip is the lip of a 2 or 3-piece wheel, and measured from the spoke to the outter lip. Its not just the polished outter edge of a 1 piece wheel. 99% of people cant tell the difference, and sometimes either can I, but its more fun saying it that way :p

Thanks guys those pics are awsome!!! those steelies are great as well. I was looking at picking up a set of sportmax 002 with 0 offset later on when i get an xb. Any one recomend an other 15in rim that looks hard with a lip and 0 offset?

Thanks again guys im jealous :) keep em comming.

I would have to say the difference between a "real" lip and a faked lip is in the shape of the wheel's center. Take a look at the shape of the face of Scotty's wheels. See how flat that is? Now take a look at the Axis face. See how far the center of the wheel turns back to give you a big lip? That is what some would consider a fake lip.

It isn't so much accomplished with back spacing or offset as it is the shape of the wheel center. I personally don't mind it, but others wouldn't count it as real lip. But I do prefer the look of a "real" lip. As long as it will still tuck when laid out. Not just the top of a stretched tire.

Axis Oldskool - 15x8 25mm w/ a 75mm lip (almost 3 inches)



I was driving along with you on the 405 last week going north from irvine...

Anyways, i was the...well, read my screen name. :) The tattooed guy driving the (very much in need of a car wash) black xb lowered on steelies, lol

Nice ride, those wheels look great in motion, and i dug your tail blackouts!

I have to agree here, to me, the "cup" style wheels are fake lip, if you take where the lugs actually come out of the center cap down to the lip on a lot of the "cup" wheels, its only truly about 1" most of lip, true lips is with a flat faced rim ;)

notice the lip actually looks pretty big, however, see how the spokes bow back in again to make the lip larger, however, the spokes flare back farther then the lugs and the hub of the car would ;)
