    Ok guys, I am open to suggestions for a new wheel. I am looking for something that is no less then 17x8 and semi light to light weight.

    This is my daily driver so I want something that is light weight but also looks good without spending 2g on wheels.

    I have had these 18's for long enough and with the power I am going to be putting down I would like a 17 since it will have a little more sidewall and a little more forgiving on the drivetrain then the 18's.

    My car is in my gallery if you haven't seen it. The wheels will have to go with the gray color.

    TIA.

    I think these would look good on your car...I can think of one member who will tell you not to get them though :p (the only other person who has this model rim on here)

    I have 4 Emo's in boxes sitting in my living room. I will open them up on friday. :sneaky: They will definitely be for sale in the next couple months, I got them just so I have time to have some Volks made in the offset I want.

    These wheels have been on my list since I first saw them but I recently found out that Work discounted this wheel in December 2005. I contacted them and they gave me one lead to an authorized dealer who only had 2 sets which were the only 2 sets in the country. The name of the shop RavSpec, located New York (which by the way have been one of the best shops I have ever done business with). With that said I did what most would do, call them and place an order and as a matter a fact according to UPS tracking they will be delivered tomorrow. :)

    P.S. I believe they still have the other set if you really wanted them but that comes at a sacrifice, the specs of the wheels are 17x7 +50 mm offset (16 or 17 Lbs.) so needless to say I will be running a spacer but thatÂ’s ok because I really wanted these wheels.
