    ok, so i need new wheels, i want something lightweight, and something that can fit with these brakes:
    (lsvtec, apparently you can't fit 15's on, at least mine wouldn't)
    [​IMG]

    so, i'm hoping 16's can fit on there, if so, what should i get?
    or in a 17?
    i found some racing hart cp-035 17x7's with tires for $1K shipped, thinking on those
    the most i think i would spend is $1500
    and if you know of where to get a certain wheel for a good price, post it up :)
    thanks

    thinking on the volks, but to the other extreme, i'm interested in rota slipstreams 16x7. what color would you guys pick for my black EK coupe? i was thinking gunmetal

    also, for those of you who run 16x7's for autocross or road racing, what size tire do you use? i was thinking 215/45/16 but is the 215 too wide? has anyone ran with this size?

    I like the bronze more than gunmetal, since your car is already dark.

    But I like the polished lip steel gray's more than anything.

    get the Volks.... theyre lighter... they are forged (stronger)... they will almost 100% surely fit over your brakes... and then we can all stop listening to B whine about needing to sell his rims ;)

    ive seen the rims they are in great condition

    True that.

    White on black wouldn't look good at all in my opinion.
    But I don't like white wheels period, on anything.

    There's a red saturn in north Vacaville with those same rims I think.
    I see it all the time in the guys driveway, I'm not a big fan of it.

    There is an EG coupe here in town with white Konig Tantrums, they look good on it. I think you would like the Volks.
