Hey everyone,
I'm looking to replace my '07 stock rims with some black with polished lip. I noticed these @ wheelsdirectonline.com:



Any other suggestions would be great...btw, I have a galaxy grey exterior

Alright, going to narrow it down...let me know which you guys would prefer (again with galaxy grey):

ASA JH8


Kazera KZ-A


Enkei Evo5 Hyperblack


TSW Volcano Hyper black


I really like the Evo5s but I was told that "Hyper Black" was actually silver. If anyone has these rims could they provide pics of it on your ride. I appreciate any suggestions, thanks!

What size are you looking to get, because I'd think 17" would look small with all those, since they have pretty big lips.

KAZERA KZ-A

do not put a different shade of grey with your grey car...i love the enkei's but it will look silly, i have seen some cars on here and it doesnt look too good in my opinon.

What is your price range?

Well I was planning to get the whole tire/wheel package and it seems like wheelsdirectonline.com has some good deals. I'm looking to spend less than $1200. And I do agree with the whole grey w/ grey...if I do go with the Kazera's, are these specs ok?

18x7.5, 215/45-18, +48offset, Bolt Pattern: 5-114

Just my opinion, but go with 225/40-18. It's a bit wider and still works. I'm running 225/40-18 on 18x7.5 et45s, so it fits no problem.

Ill take your word for it, hehe. Well, I was researching some more and found these tenzo r's:





I really like the Gunmetal ones but do you think it'll match too much to my exterior? (as posted before on hyperblack)

Check out the 5Zigen line. They've got some nice wheels similar to the ones already posted. Most with the polished lip and a darker color like you're looking for.
Yeah, the one I really like is the Hyper 5ZR...but it only comes in Hyper Black.

bokbok - I think TEXAS2LO was trying to sell his set (in the 18" with tires..) you may want to search for that.

Hmmm...I couldnt find it in the sales section. Well, what color do you guys think looks best with galaxy grey? I got the %20 tint all around also.

i agree that you shouldnt get the hyper black. if you can get the enkies in anthricite that would look good. its as dark of a grey you can get without it being black. check mine out. you can see they are almost as dark as my black mica 3.they are for sale by the way. :whistle:




also wheelsdirect does not have the mb drifters in our offset. i just tried to order them for winter wheels 2 weeks ago.

my rims are anthricite. they are a very,very dark grey. they look black until you get right up next to them. i think they would look even darker on a non-black car.
