    i think i have decided on black w/ polished lip for the s2000. These are within my price range. I can't affor the HOT ASS WORK WHEELS that I really want for it because they are $750 a wheel or something like that.

    i was wondering if anyone has any input on these wheels, have they used them before etc. or and SSR wheels.

    they are speedstar wheels, who make SSR

    SSRs are light, but do not count on them lasting too long if you drive them on the streets. They tend to bend and get damaged very easily when driving on rough streets. However they are great track/auto-x wheels. Or at least that was my roommates experience with them.

    A friend has some 18x7.5" SSR GT somthings. Cost $300 a wheel. He autocrosses with them on his Saab and they do very well. A little heavy at 19lb's, but not horrible. They're semi forged and have never had a problem taking abuse.
    They look like my wheels. I like them

    advan RG's are apparently rice because they come from japan and you are officially a JDM ricer if you get them. I dont think its possible to get a set of wheels anymore lol.
