I found this ill set of rims but I found out that they only come in 18x 7.5. Do any of you ride on such pizza cutters??? Could ya post some front and back pics so I can see if I still wanna buy em...I ve never heard of 18s being that thin.....what would be the advantages /disadvantages if a tire that small I was hoping on some 18x 8.5 but for some reason I really like these rims....Would I have to use spacers to bring them to the wheel well properly......Sooo whats the deal with all this???? Im about a week away <or Less> from a decision.
Thanks again kidz.....Doogal
I like the rims, however I only see disadvantages. Of course, if you are going from something thinner to this, it will be better handling because of the wider stance. If you are going from something wider, then you will notice less handling. I am sure you can find something similar with 8.5" width. I don't think you will need the spacers unless you want to make the wheels fluch with the fenders, which I would prefer.
Yhanks Cam for that info ....I am going from stock to these but a couple of people said that these rims bend easily.......so last night I ripped thru like 6 magazines and found that ENkei has a rim that is very similar except for the bolts on the inner lip.....they are the Enkei RSV and Im sure Ill have more variety of sizes.......has anyone heard anything bad about that rim/company
heres the site to what I was originally looking at AKtires.com
OK ....scratch that Idea......Im not gettin them...I found another set and completely fell In LOVE with them ........weird, but Ive been thinking about them all day......problem is, WOAH, theyre 2800.00 a set with out tires. Custom made every order....I was gunna get 18x9 in the rear and 18x7 in the front ....would have looked tight......So now I im gunna have to go with another set ......Ill post them in another post......I dont knpw how to put multiple pics in the same post...Lemme know what ya think
ok ....heres the ones im thinking of now.......im gunna have the center painted black before I pick them up I was thinking about 18x9 in rear and 18x8 in the front ....hopefully ill get them with in 2-3 weeks
Oh and of course, the roundel will definately grace the center of whatever rim I get
Sorry about all the indecision.........I guess im startin to sould alil schizophrenic at this point.....I just wanna get it right the first time.....
im not getting the expensive ones....But I really really really really really want em.....The Drift R are only 1200 with tires.....I think im gunna go with yokahamas.....not sure what size yet Cam....But ill think about it, andd get back at ya.......what would you suggest?????

No question. You'll feel the road much more, but it's not unbareable. The question that comes into play is whether or not you want the looks or the ride. I want the looks to the most extent, as do most others on this forum I'm sure.
