    ok... so the mom decided to choose the rims for the del sol... she made a bbbaaaaaddddddd decision, IMO. i gotta know what ya'll think so i can talk her out of buying them. here's a pic of the Lexani Firestars 215/40/18's she picked out:

    Except that Motegi MR7s are heavy mofo's.

    Should have gone with Konig or Rota or something for inexpensive light weight wheels.

    i didn't really have much time to do the research for weight... not gonna matter much though, the car makes 400 to the wheels.

    it does matter. if it makes 400 to the wheels, you are going to snap axles. plus, they are ugly imo. you should have gotten better race wheels. i don't understand how you could build a 400hp car and not know anything about wheels. plus, the weight is shown on the website. whatever. thanks mom

    yeah, i hear you about the axle problem. my dad and I discussed this in lengthy detail and i believe we are going to get custom drive shafts, just because it will be daily driven. i do understand the axle/power/wheel problems i'm facing, but it soon will be fixed. the rims don't look that bad, i chose them because they are plain but custom looking, if you know what i mean. that and they are easy to clean. there is a lot of road grime and shit on our streets. they sure as hell weigh less than the lexani pieces of shit she was going to choose though. the mr7's just don't feel that heavy... my next choice next to motegi would have been the konig troubles. they would have fit with the car's body style.
