i got my rims today!
all i can say is it was a surprize. they center hub was too large by about 1/16 of an inch, so i ended up grinding down part of the calipers (gt) about 1/8 inch. these rims look really good i think, lightest ive ever experienced.

i totally agree...i plan on it sooner or later. first i need to lower it, then exhaust probably. when i lower it, i will paint a lot of that stuff a glossy black so it doesnt look quite as bad.

Isn't it funny how once you get something such as rims you need something else...such as break upgrade. Its the never ending cycle.
