These look great. My guess is these are RS026 with the front narrowed. If so, the rear should be ET36 and the front should be ET 23.3 by my calculations. Also, the backs are not flat.

Good luck with the sale!

The fronts have to be double narrowed (both shells) if its a 16x7, RS026's have the 2" slant outer shell like you are talking about, but also have 7.5" inner shells.

It really depends on what he has there to determine the ET on the fronts, 0.5" outer shell, 1.0" outer shell, 6.5" inner shell, 6.0" inner shell, etc..

I bet my calculations were right on. OP states the front lips are 1 inch, therefore the barrels are 5.5 inches, which makes my calculations exactly right.
