New Rims

I'm still on the lookout for new rims for my car... but most are way too expensive. If money was no option, I'd be riding on ACS Type 3's or BBS RG-R's.... but since it is, I'm leaning more toward the Velocity Motorsports VB-1 rims in 18".

Product Link

Only $599 for 4 also, I think is a decent deal... still a lot of money though considering I'd also have to buy tires and get the balanced and stuff. =/ Gotta keep buying lottery tickets I guess. lol

Upgrading tires/rims will take some money, as I am sure you know. The VB-1s are a pretty good buy, especially if that is around how much you want to spend. I almost suggested Mille Miglias from tirerack, but the wheels alon run about $750.

Yeah, that's kinda the problem. =/

That site sells tires balanced on them when shipped for another $450.

Those rims are nice, but really common. If you really wanna look good and save money get some 17" M3 Lightweight rims from bav auto or used on ebay. You can get 4 for the same price or less, they are lighter and tires are much less $$

Honest opinion Harry is I don't like those rims too much. I see those on Honda's and Toyota's all day long and they just don't excite me. I think you need a gunmetal color or a black rim with a polished lip. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...sPageName=WDVW Would be awesome on your car IMO. I know the owner of this place I bet I could get you a deal.

Yeah they are common on some cars, but not in the south. They look amazing, perform really well and are cheap to get tires for.

one thing you could do is watch classifieds and pick up a set of stock m3 wheels for a while ( i think they are the best looking wheel out there) contours and leightweights are HOT!! the rim that i really really like, i dont care what anyone says is the ssr gt3, (gotta have some big brakes behind them, but oh sooo sexy)
