Got my new wheels today, SSR Comps in 16X7. Only 9.5 pounds each:buttrock They have Goodyear GSD-3 tires on them now but they are 205/50/16's which is too tall. When I wear these out I'm probably swaping to a 215/40/16. For those of you that were thinking of running the GSD-3's I have this to say, they have good grip but make a noticable ammount of noise while going down the road. I'll get some better pics of the wheels tomorrow once I get them cleaned up a little better and get some dressing on the tires.
Very nice aj, are those the wheels from out of the country you were trying to get, or some others?
No, those arn't the ones I was trying to get from the UK. The ones I orginally wanted are made by Team Dynamics Racing, and are 17X7.5. The ones I have now are 16X7 SSR Competitions Type-C's and only weigh 9.5 pounds. There is also a SSR wheel called the Type-H which looks like the Type-C that I have but weigh almost twice as much which some people dont realize when they order them.
$1500, I traded my Team Dynamics with tires to him so my final total was $600. If you are looking to buy a set you are going to have to get used because I'm pretty sure SSR went out of business or at least stoped making the Comp type-c's
hmm...have ever considered color matching the mirrors, or doing the trim black. I know i've talked to Kyle about it and we have our arguments, buti think bronzit mirrors + trim could look really good..or maybe doing just trim..or just mirrors..who knows, tomorrow if i have time i'll photoshop it for you.
