i just filed my taxes and I am expecting a hefty chunk of change to be coming back my way. which means...time to go wheel shopping again. I'm on my second set right now...I wanna do something unusual. I tend to only stick with black and gold for every car I've ever owned. So this time I wanna do something crazy...haha. I'll post some pics when I get new wheels.






PS...shortly after that picture I color-matched my lip...shortly after that, my lip hit a piece of tire on the 35e south. Shortly after that my lip was no more

how much are you looking to spend? If money isn't an issue i'd look at some bronze work emotions or volk te-37. Or you could just go with some rotas or tenzos if you're on a budget.

depending on how much you get back, I say get some Advan RZ in hypersilver, Work XSA 02C in gunmetal, Volk Racing CE28N in silver, or some SSR Type F in silver!

i'm in the same situation. im going berzerk.... ive hit the shopping cart button 8 times and closed the window... i cant pick rims to save my life... i know what looks good... so to speed this process up ive decided on the offset and sizes, 18x8... 48 offset. other than that.. i have no idea... i think im goin with rota p1's... yes im on a budget. and its only a base model "i" so im not gonna go too crazy.

i've had a set of bronze and a set of gold with a polished lip on before. now i'm back to stock. I just wanna do something different. I was looking at the Absolute Green Rota Grids, but I decided against it because I knew I'd get sick of that after about a week. Black looks good on strato blue, but I already have my stock wheels painted black so it's not anything too exciting. I'm just gonna keep looking around for a few more days and then click the purchase button. I know whatever I get I'll be happy with. And if I end up not liking them I keep them for a year, get my tax return, sell them and buy new ones.
