Those are Gorgeous!

You'll never find originals for less then an arm and leg, Rota makes a replica called the J-Mag. But it only comes 15x7 et40


Here's some others.
Axis OG-San. 15x7 et35. You can get these in a package for $600 with rubber, but shipping is extra. That's from a Canadian supplier and they will ship on Greyhound, so shipping is fair.


Some other Axis
Old School 15x8 et25 $680 package


Axis Banzai 15x8 et25 $680 package






If you like Work Meister
Konig Kandy 15x7.5 et30


Rota D2 16x7 et40

Holy fuck Heretic, are you a rep for Rota? like, i've never seen someone push Rota's so much in my life. M7's are not hard to find and they do not cost an arm and a leg, im certain they're are at least 3 sets on icbmotorsport.com for a great price and 1 set on memoryfab.com. Look before you post what you think, I'd rather see Travis rock 16x9 -10 Jlines then Rota's. /Rant

Yeah ok, lets go to the other side of the spectrum.


It would probably be a lot more accepted by everybody on here, if you took a baseball bat to your front fender, shot all the paint off thew car with a sand blaster, gave it a salt bath and let it sit in the rain all spring. Then when it has a nice patina rust, mixed with half removed paint finish. Add an external oil cooler with the lines coming out of one of the headlight holes. Drop it way past practical, and run the most god damn expensive 3 piece forged kryptanium wheels you can buy. Like seriously, if they don't cost over $1000 each, you're doing it wrong. Preferably they should be more rare then a unicorn fetus.

Because the one thing I can tell you for sure,
- it does matter how nice a car is, if it has Replica wheels, it will never be nice.
- however the biggest fucking piece of shit, pathetic car you ever saw is instantly epic, the second it has awesome wheels.

This is all 100% true, I can't deny it, and I'm not immune to it's effect either. So in the spirit of being that asshole that just tosses out wheel suggestion that cost way more then your Honda,

Bam! Sakura Cherry Blossoms.



Now the only way to acquire these wheels, is not to buy them...no sir that can no longer be done. They are more valuable then their weight in gold (I'm not kidding on that one) You will have to solicit the services of a group of top notch Japanese mercenary's, and pay them to break into some guys fortified vault and steal them Mission Impossible style, hanging from the roof and hacking his computer system. (Which to complicate matters some is now under 12 feet water) And then you still have to pay for shipping from Japan.

As there is no other wheel in the whole entire world remotely suitable for your Del Sol

/thread

Or buy Spoon wheels, the offset will suck shit, but at least BJ will get a chubby.

I guess in all honestly it depends on your budget? Question

This forum is so serious.. basically it's like 'should I buy these wheels?' because I like them.. but then one guy says no, because it's not cool and then you don't even consider them. Like what the fuck are you a child and you have to haven an internet forum choose wheels for you. Buy what you want, not what others tell you to. This has been gone over so many times, it's pathetic.

Dude you thought you were different because you drove a car with some shitty ass wheels that everyone said were alright but looked like they came from a clearance bin from Canadian Tire in 1996, bottom line is there is nothing wrong with a wheel that tries to replicate something that has already been done, and sometimes are even half the cost.

Half the cost? Maybe with rubber!!!

Now a days(on internet forums at least) if you don't have wheels that are legit brand name and from Japan people will look at them like they're a piece of shit, they look the same and are probably in better condition than the legit used(I say used because the wheels everyone wants are the ones that are no longer made) ones would be. Of course everyone wants the most ballin' and legit wheels but realistically a majority of the people don't have money for that kind of thing because they're feeding other mouths, paying rent and bills etc(only one of those things apply to me and I still can't afford 1500+ dollar rims unless I want to take out a loan or stop having any kind of a life).

My theory: the internet is killing the game!!!! Very Happy

As far as this

goes, I don't think Travis is going to let anyone choose his wheels for him, he just wants suggestions of rims so he can browse and find something he likes. Rather than spending countless hours of finding pictures and names of rims he started this thread to get the trigger pulled a bit quicker. It's obviously the easier way and its threads like this that strive on internet forums, the general section on QCA has never been better!!!

That's why the rally community is awesome, it's Braid, Team Dynamics, Prodrive, Speedline Course and some Enkei wheels. They are proven to survive just about anything you throw at them and are readily available, because some people drive the hell out of the car, not park it sideways and measure ride height with a cell phone.

i wish i could find my post from 6 months ago where i said "im building my car for me, not qca" Its ok that no one likes my wheels, because i do. But when someone asks for opinions on wheels, ill give mine. And then you get all butthurt and think you need to post about my "shitty" wheels. Congrats man your the thread hero!

The steelwheel broke because it had winterforce tires bolted on them. Those tires don't spin, the earth physically moves. Also if filled with nitrogen they can take you to the moon.
