Those are incredible wheels!!! I was planning on getting those also, but I can't swing the $300 or above price tag for wheels again like I use to. Like Steven said you could bend a wheel driving on some crappy roads. People use those mainly for the track and swap to a different wheel on public roads. I personally think you would be alright on normal everyday driving on the SSR's. Just don't plan on flying around town over crappy roads and/or get a tire with a bigger aspect ratio. Not too big to defeat the whole purpose of handling and looks. Is as light as you can go your main concern? Will you be track racing? If not, any forged wheel will be just as good or better if you can find our offset in it and can afford spending maybe twice that. Light weight and extremely tough But, scrape those expensive wheels and you'll wish you never got them. Good luck. Check this out about SSR wheels... Problems with SSR Comp. Wheels?
Well, light-weight isn't really my main concern. I'm not really looking to go to the track, it's just that I want to get something that I'm not going to regret buying later.
If I get really light-weight rims then there's a greater chance that they'll get bent(if I'm reading all this correctly)
I definitely don't want anything bigger than 17" cause I just don't care for the look personally. I was looking at the ssr comps on tirerack.com because they are supposed to be forged stronger than other wheels that I was looking at and they are really light-weight.
As I said before, Performance isn't the most imporant to me, I just don't want to make the celi any slower with the wheels I get, cause that would kinda defeat the perpose of me adding Performance mods
The price is quite steep also, looking over it again I don't think I can justify spending $1600 on rims and tires. So are there any other suggestions on rims?
(sorry the post is so long)
Thanks for all of the advise
