Wheels, rims & alloys... oh my!
Back to the struggle of which shoes to get, it comes down to money, quality and style.

I tend to like a style with more spokes, but not too many, and I have definitely liked the dark and light contrast scheme such as black with machine lip or gunmetal with machine lip.. but it does seem like every one out there is jumping on this trend, so I've considered some plain silver options.

Any input or suggestions of rims like these or maybe anything else? Also, any idea how these companies match up in terms of quality, ie: bending, deforming, last of finish etc.

SSR seems to be the most popular.. question is why? The look is very similar to the Motegi and somewhat like Enkei RS7.

I too had been leaning towards Rev Model II, but not very many people have Rev wheels so I don't know if they are going to buckle down on me in a year or less, and they are pretty cheap and light.. seems too good to be true.

Well I checked into the SSR rims and they are pricey, about the same cost as BBS.. that's no good. So I have come up with another list.

The Volks are going to be very expensive as well. 18" Volks will definitely be over 2K. So with those out, I like the G-Racing Seki or Advanti. thumbsup

If you're wondering what a wheel with a LOT of spokes looks like on a celica...

https://www.celicahobby.com/ubbthreads/thread.f_1870049095_0_collapsed_5__1.html

If I buy new ones, I'm getting some with a silver lip and black centers. That just looks so damn hot on a black celica.

Personally, i like the Motegi FF7 or the SSR GT7.
Black/Gunmetal + Chrome Lip = tasty thumbsup

Hm Volk will be pretty pricey eh? The BBS and SSR rims are considerably over $3000 Cnd. and I want to spend no more than $1850 or less.

Thanks for the suggestion on the other rims that are multi-spoke but a bit too many spokes for me, there is the Enkei NT03 but even then I'm not too sure as it may be a bit much.
