Here's a few pics of my new rims. They're 5Zigen Heidfelds 3 piece in 18x8 with 225/35 tires.

5Zigen is a relatively good Japanese made brand so you can't go wrong with them. They have both high end 3 piece wheels and lower middle line single piece wheels. The Heidfelds in particular are only offered in 3 piece if you get 18 or larger.

And yes the Heidfelds have been discontinued so at least I won't see many if any other IS's running them.

The rims in the pics of my bro's car are the same wheels. It's nice that the IS and 'lude use exactly the same size wheels. We can switch off now and then.

those r the multi-piece heidfelds which only come in 18s and 19s and if u do find a shop selling these wheels they well cost as much as volks in the same size.

Both cars look real nice.

Did you get those rims new or used?
Wassup Vincent.....

Wheels look familiar?
Hahhaah....miss your old wheels? I'm sure you're happier with your lighter Volks in 16". Much more appropriate for autoX. Hope to one day get out on the track and autox with you guys again.

I'm ovadalimit's brother. Met you way back in the day when I autoX'd my '96 Accord. Read your SCCA webpage...you've had quite a successful career there. When's the next event down here at Qualcomm? Would like to come out and check out your latest setup.
