bbs makes the best rims in my opinion i am very satisfied with them plus they have a lifetime no hassle warranty, you call them give them the serial number on the wheel and they send you a new one free

i'm partial to ssr
the ssr comps are very light, but in the past have had compaints of them denting easily.
HREs are nice too.

also try taking a look at iForged, i believe they can custom make offset to your specs.

thats an amazing link bob thanks (nice too see ya around again too)

which rims do you have? SSRs? i love the whole concept of a 15lb 18inch rim but i was worried about the strenght of them, i even looked at the Comp-H's that are suppose to be a little stronger than the convential comp-c's

i havent found a good place to compare HRE prices yet, and i havent even considered iforged yet but i should have.

wow HREs??? those are pretty damn spendy!! i was going to go w. the SSR but i didnt have the money. they are a very light wheel. i ended up w/ the asa because they were cheap durable and pretty light. if i were u, i would look at the ssr again, i love the 5 and 7 spoke, along w. the gt3!!! later

I am a big fan of the SSR GT series(gt3, etc.). I also really like the Hamann rims. These are both alot more than I wanted to spend otherwise I would have gotten some of them.

i have ssr gt3s = heavy, but it gives me an excuse to keep spending more $$ to increment the performance back up
it's been a while, so i don't know a thing about the comp-Hs.

what about BBS LM's[/quote]
those are nice, kinda reminds me of a couple of the HREs models. if i had the money i'd go straight for the HREs though.

does anybody have any experience with ssr comp's? i have heard they can bend but does anybody know how much of a beating (potholes etc) they will take before bending. i am considering them but do not want to if they are going to be ruined easily.
