Well like ive mentioned before, i have to get ride of my rims. I really dont want to cause i really REALLY like them, but its not going to work unless i get some spacers and extended bolts. Instead i would grab a decent set of wheels now, and opt the expensive wheels for the Tein SS suspension im looking into pickin up next weekend. When im ready, ill follow a fellow IS friend and get a custom wheel design..looked Great! i sometimes see them in my dreams, and is a Great step towards total customization to My baby!

this is what i have on my car now, Ikon 18''



here is one set a friend showed me..good price i just dont like that many bolt holes exposed. i dont think they have a cover.. what do you think of the brand?

The style isn't bad... and looks similar to what you have now. But like you... I'm not a fan of rims with multiple holes in the center. The last two sets of rims I bought I specifically made sure not to get a style that has multiple holes.

To me it looks like you went to Walmart and bought one-size fits all rims... :blush: The style is cool... but I say get one specifically designed with your bolt pattern.

The first rims you posted look like the new VW Scirocco rims.

The BBS knock-offs don't look that bad...

Personally if I were you I wouldn't cheap out and get a cheaper set of rims for now. If you plan on getting a good pair of shoes why not wait till you have the money and go for the ones you really want? These rims may look good to you, but there is a definate difference in the quality of rims. i.e .. knock off brands may tend to bend far more easily.



BTW liking the ROJAs mrmonster, did you end up picking those up?

Yeap :) I received them on Wed but they sent me the wrong sizes, I shipped them back yesterday and should be getting the correct ones sometime this next week.

The Rays boxes looked pretty heh.

I'm sure your gonna love the quality lol. I remember seeing a video recently of Rays quality of producing wheels. It was simply amazing. I can honestly say that the next set of wheels I buy will definately be Rays.

Thats pretty messed up to send you the wrong sizes, definately is a tease ;)

i need to get a set of wheels now, cuz i wont be able to do my brake job, the way i look at it i could sell my wheels and buy a set that will clear my calipers and not have to spend a dime.

Derik let me know what set you are interested in, ill talk to him about ordering two sets.

friends shouldn't let friends roll on replica wheels.

they may look nice and all, but what's the quality control on these types of wheels?

you need to remember all weight of your vehicle is, and the wheels/tires take all the abuse from the roads.

seen enough pics of replica wheels cracking BADLY.
