Should I stick with the Motegi MR7's (that I planned on getting) OR should I go with one of these:







The two are on sale @ Vitctoria Tire. 120 a piece which isn't that bad considering the MR7's would be about 140 a piece. The only downside is that they dont' have any of the tires I would choose from. It says they would mount and balance them for free and ship ready for install. I got an opinion on my friends (and you guys) Falken ZE-502 and he said he loves them. So I think I'm going to try them out. I'm definately going Gunmetal to match my car...I like the first ones best, but the 2nd ones I like also. What do you guys think?

I'm going with the RS Limited Ikari (Ones on top) because I found a wheel and tire package with them @ CBWheels. 700 for 17x7 with Hancook Ventus tires. I've heard good things about the Ventus tires, so I'll give them a shot. I'm also going to get the DropZone Coilovers that they have on there. 180 for all four, 0"- 4". Hopefully have them installed by the end of next week!! Gotta wait on the shipment to come in, and they're on! I e-mailed asking them if the tires are already mounted and balanced, they should be right? They have yet to answer that question for sure. I was just updating you guys on the wheel situation and I will definately post pics with my dads digi-cam where I will be installing everything. oh btw...both of the wheels are only 17.5 lbs each. Thats' pretty impressive since 1) They're replica/imitation wheels. 2) They're 17x7. You think that will not make my accel. go down as much? Since it's less rotational mass?

cmo - Yeah, I still have the first picture wheels, the gunmetal. In 17's. This post is just OLD!!! Like last July/August before I got my wheels. Yes you can get the 2nd ones in Gunmetal as well. Those were the ones I wanted real bad, but they didn't have them in a "package" deal. Ya know, with mounted and balanced tires, etc. And it was cheaper for the package instead of individual, so I got the first ones instead. And I still love 'em!

cmo - It's cool. I still am strapped for cash though! Yeah, I've yet to decide on my summer project. Wnat to swap in SR but then again I don't. Might build up my GA like crazy and put a shot on it. Not going turbo with either motors, so yeah. Right now I'm saving for Fastbrakes. I'm 17, so it might take awhile!! LoL. Oh well, later.

pac - Yeah, I have the Ikari's. My server shutdown on me or I'd post some pics. Hoping to get some soon though.
