Specific Rim Help

Anyone have experience with these?

http://customwheel.com/custom_wheels...ducts_id/35301



I love the price and like the style (not that it really matters for what I need them for), but still.
I have some 245/45R18 Blizzaks I'll be using for this set of rims throughout the snowboarding season.

Anyone see a problem with these, or have had any problems in the past?

Also - they're only 18x8.0's instead of the stock 18x8.5's and I wanted to make sure that shouldn't cause any problems?

Thanks for the help in advance.
Ryan

Also looking at these possibly - a little more subtle and going to bet lighter since they're 1pc alloys like the stock BBS rims.



Motegi has a pretty reputable name in the business right?

american racing (makes motegi) doesnt have a good name. if your draging a muscle car mayby but doing turns theyre not good, theyre cheap that why alot of ricers get them. make sure what ever you get is forged. http://www.americanracing.com/motegi_racing_wheels.asp look here this is the home page and they have a subie and civic, we all know that those cars suck.

interesting - thanks.

i can't imagine those drifz are really any better.
i won't be needing anything stellar, like the BBS's, since it's primarily highway driving on ice and snow.
i can't waste a full rim budget on something that's just getting trashed anyways.
i think anything will suit my needs - but wanted to see some interesting opinions (like yours - thanks).

Forged wheels are overkill. I would suggest any of the Enkei's as long as the fitment is right. They are good quality and widely available and don't cost an arm and a leg.

seems like overkill to me too.
performance / weight isn't that much of a huge deal when blizzaks are only rated to 96mph. not going crazy on these things since ice/snow is a constant.

i've been playing in photoshop and not sure about it either.
it's a little "flashy", but i actually saw some just like this in chrome (without the red) on a brand new Lexus and really liked them.
price is really my #1 concern, but still want something i at least kind of like.

cool - thanks for the heads up.
i'm not too surprised they look cheap (since they are), but i'll probably avoid with the first hand opinion. i haven't been able to find them in a store to actually go and check out.
