Nice collection of cars you got there! It makes everyone west of Garfield Avenue (San Marino) pretty jealous
...also because of how better their High School is as well.

One of my friends wanted to get a set of 7's too for his IS also, so it would have looked nice (but on a SBM IS though).

WOW GUYS, thanx for those comments!
Now to answer some questions...
Those cars are just in my household, Im only 18. My dad has a TT and ML 430, and my mom has the S430 and a Quest. And I also help my sis pick the 2001 Civic Coupe, VERY NICE LOOKING.
For TRDRAV4, I did goto San Marino High as a matter of fact. PRetty good school too.
I spent about 30 bucks for the super whites with installation.
I customized the sticker on my IS at redspot, but it looked too ricy, so i took it off.
I got Pirelli tires on my rims.
I tinted the back 5 windows. Dont remember the settings though.
I think thats about it...thanx guys.

Sweet ride!

I have the same looking rims on my car now, just 3" inches smaller and a million times uglier. heh.

Is this seven spoke rim style popular amongst manufacturers?? I mean Konig has something very similar, and so does ALT, which I have. Are the from the same plant with different manufacturers?

This is what I mean. Look at yours. Now look at these:

http://www.altwheels.com/productdetail.asp?id=11

The avs, alt, konig and probably some others are visually the same.

Nice pics, I see your family has the taste for SILVER. How is the ride in the IS after you lowered it with the HR springs?, and are your real CAREFUL w/ speedbumps and POTHOLES?

Well I finally got some wheels, which arent the ones I really wanted in the first place, but good enough. Sprewell Racing ordered the wrong wheels from Japan for me. I wanted the AVS series 7, they got me the model 7.
Anyways....tell me what ya think.

Like those wheels. What width do they come in? Do they come in plain silver?
Car looks great. Glad you took off the TRD stickers too. TRD is great stuff, but leave the rice to the honda/acura drivers.
