Should I get new wheels?
« on: December 07, 2003, 01:20:13 PM »
Here are my two current sets:

Black Wheels (16x7 Rota Slipstream, 13.8lbs, 225/50R16 Kumho MX's, racing only)


and

White Wheels (18x7.5 Konig Rated R, 19lbs, 235/40R18 Nitto NT555's, street)



My dilemma is  whether or not I should sell both sets that I have and get 17x8.5" Racing Hart CP035's or something similar. It would have to be at least 8.5" wide, and 17". I'd put Kumho VictoRacers on them (255's). Then I can also do a big brake kit in the future if i wanted. Plus I like the look of 18s alot on my car, but I just want something real light. The best I could do with the rotas would be to get 245s and the ion performance $3000 brake kit....

Lemme know what you think. Thanks!

CP-035's 17x8.5 in White, 14lbs for an 17 tho :)

They are expensive tho, like $1900 just for rims.

I like the black better too.
But that's just me.

Aren't you going to want two sets all the time anyway?  Or are you going to get 18's and just run one set for cruizin' and racing?

Yea the goal would be to eliminate switching wheels all of the time, and just run one set for racing and going around, etc....
