Dear Brayden, nobody hates your wheels.... just your attitude. You are not a unique snowflake, you are just another QCA member.


Are we actually justifying buying cheap wheels, instead of buying brand name wheels? I like wheels, if that is what you want to spend your money, then please do. However, if you don't have the coin, or can't save up for them, please just say that. That is the only real justification to not buying the "expensive" ones.

I can't form a real thought about this as my brain is not working. But, it would seem the "have nots" all have an excuse for not having the parts they really want. Instead they over compensate in the face of others by listing reasons why everyone else is stupid for doing exactly what they want.

I have said this before, I don't have a problem with knock of wheels. I wouldn't put them on my Nissan... but probably my Datsun. The reason for that is because I am broke. I am envious of all the old school Japanese cars that have legit wheels.

If you have the money and want to spend it on wheels by all means get the sickest most legit JDM wheels you can, if I could afford SW388's or Evo5's they would be in my garage right now. For me I can get my suspension 100% done and have a shiny new set of Konig's(with rubber) for the price of either of those wheels in used condition. I really need to stop smoking and drinking every weekend! Very Happy

If I see a car with Rota, XXR's, ESM, Axis, etc. I don't think negatively about it. If it's sitting right and looks good, I like it. If it's on Wedsports, or Racing Hart or something high end. I definitely do appreciate it that much more. (Well with me it's usually Schmidt or BBS wheels, but same idea).

Everybody is entitled to their own opinion, but at the same time the constant beak fest on the various forums is kinda ruining it. D15 Civic on Regamasters? I can appreciate that. Maybe the next guy runs Slipstreams and puts the extra money towards a B18 swap, that's great too!

At least the owners are playing with the cars, and having fun with them. Cause if it's not fun, why do it?

this is all true and I have been online searching for "rare" wheels at a cost my budget can allow. I have even talked back and forth with my HID supplier and have her out looking for something that may work. Now the only problem with used rims. Is just that used... And its really hard for me to commit to buying something across seas being sight un seen. Like pictures only go so far. Where as a new rim it is in mint shape and if bought from right place carries a warranty. If I can have it my way I want rare ass parts for the car.. but thats where my budget blocks me. I dont have $1500 readily avail for rims alone. I have other shit that has my money tied up at the moment. Im just looking for something that will give me a nice stance/look to tie me over until the time comes where i can afford some nice rare goodies. Im not asking anyone on here to choose a rim for me but like it was said I am just asking for some ideas because maybe i have overlooked something in my search's. The car will be built to MY spec not anyone else's if you dont believe me look back at my integra with V-pipes... no one else liked em but i did them anyway for that sole reason. (dont worry they aren't making a come back anytime soon).

Make a decision yet? If your not 100% with anything just wait and keep looking, I'm glad I didn't order anything a few months ago before these WideOpens even came out.

Ebay or VW Vortex 4x100 Classified's.


RS's will run a good $1500-$2000, plus shipping
http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthread.php?5231101-FS-BBS-RS-15x8.5-amp-10-CT&highlight=bbs

RM's depends on what outer lips they have, and what kind of condition. But $600 for poor condition to $1500 or more for nice condition with deep lips. But the poor condition ones are no real savings. Center cap nuts are $250 a set, Outer shells are $300 a pair. These came stock on some MKII VW 16v's, so it's not completely unheard of to find them locally. Sometime people don't know what they are worth, but good luck.

Here's something rare that popped up on Vortex.

You feeling alright man? Everything good at home? Do you need somebody to talk to or...?


949Racing 6UL, come in Nickel, Broze, Black or Silver.
15x7.0 - 11.3lbs - $130 usd
15x7.5 - 11.4lbs - $150 usd
15x8.0 - 12.4lbs - $160 usd
15x9.0 - 12.8lbs - $190 usd

Not sure what there is for backspacing room on Civic, but the problem with these is they are always et36 offset. So the backspacing gets awfully deep on the wider ones. Probably take spacers to fit 8's or 9's,
