They both look similar as uber said. You might want to check out TSW, they have several similar designs on Discount Tire, 18x8 are 224.00, and 17x8 are 184.00/EA.
Just a suggestion, I really like the Valencias, Snettertons, and Nurburgrings, for a new edge. Just saving my pennies. LOL
Good point. The shelbys are 450 each and the forgestars are 350 a piece. The shelbys wont fit without spacers anyways. Just wanted see what they looked like on car. The RTR's kinda look the same but more curves and I'm not crazy about them.
I'm going with TSW, they've been around a long time in Europe. I looked at RTR, while they have a great looking product, I'm not paying $2300.00 for wheels, it the one thing that stopped me from buying Darkstars @ $400.00/EA.
Which honestly isn't horrible, but our roads are crap here.

Idk, it's your car man. I know you get what you pay for.
I'm holding out for those TSW's, they're only 20 lbs, and the price you can't beat, since I'm sticking with the OEM size. If I hadnt just bought new tires I would definitely look at something else size wise. I'll continue "window shopping" as I'm not really even close to buying anything right now. I may look at what tread depot has to offer as they just started carrying wheels too.
Yeah I know. I bought all black 17" 03' cobra rims almost 3 years ago and even though there is nothing wrong with them I'm in the mood for change. I would kinda like to bump up to an 18'' rim, but tire prices are crazy for 18s. I guess I'll follow your lead an window shop till my tires wear out then take it from there.
