You're killing me you meatball... No I kept em. I'll maybe do something different with them, maybe powder coat.
@audioal, these are 18x8.5 and 18x10 with +25 offset. They weigh 20 and 22lbs each. Hell of a difference between my dd Bullitts I was running

thats the only think i dont like...i had 18s, but 18x9 in front, 275 fronts 295 rears. Anything less than 275 on the front with 18s imo doesn't look right. But i dont mind the rims themselves im a bit jealous cuz they remind me of ccw or bbs and i want a set of those soooo bad.


edit: thats what i have on the pic in my sig. But had to sell those, couldnt afford the tires, or stand the loss of performance from the extra weight...best time with my 18s N/A 13.9, best times with factory 245s N/A 13.39 soooo yea big heavy *** wheels=slow

Ya, I am regretting the 18x8.5 part. Next time they are on sale I'll go with the 18x10's and give the fronts back to the evo that's on blocks down the street

Doesn't look bad at all! I'm a mesh wheel fan so I'm a little biased. I'm putting forgestar wheels on my car come spring. But looks good man! How's that IRS holding up?

Crash gotta say at 1st I wasn't feeling it but looking at the stance of your car I really like the look. Time for a SC cheap skate!

As soon as I graduate college and get a real job, making real money instead of the monopoly money I get paid now. #collegestudentprobz
