Exel H-50

hey everyone...i want to buy the exel h-50's (look just like Racing Hart Z5000)...does anyone have these? if so what is the weight on them? better than stock GT rims in terms of weight? thanks for the help!

these are the rims by the way... about 3/4 way down the page

http://www.wheelmax.com/Wheels/exel/exel.htm

the racing harts are only 950 now shipped...are they worth the extra 100 bucks?

it all depends on other exterior mods and if you have a theme. But you just have a body kit and your car is all red then go with silver.

nah, it won't look dumb. Well, I don't think my car looks dumb. I have 10 spokes, so they are really thin. I am actually going to paint the drums red.

Why are you paying money to get it done? All you need is a can of brake clean, paint, and newspapers.
