can't get rims because of lug nut patterns! new
#1186057 - 03/07/06 10:23 PM

so yeah, im out shopping for new rims, i had my eyes set on some, but they couldn't find a lugnut pattern for them! So i tried a different place and asked them to look up rims for my lugnut pattern, they tried to get me to buy some gunmental ones with a darker gray color in the middle. But i really didn't like them, they we're from (ICW racing Kobe Style) but yeah.

does anyone have Eagle Rims on thier car? they have some with our bolt pattern and style 188 is starting to grow on me.

What is the point in aftermarket (other than race wheels) 14" or 15" wheels?

Go with 17"s or bigger. And there are PLENTY out there. Just look for wheels that fit focuseses.

Stick with 17's. the ride is the best compromise between ultra soft and jar-your-head-off-your-body hard.

18's are just too big, from a performance perspective.


I think a nice set of 225/45/17's or close are the perfect tire, and rim size for handling in this car. (IMHO)

The 14"'s will those work with my stock brakes or will i have to get the strut tower brace in the group buy to make them work?
