Default i need RIMS

im going crazy! ive been all over the internet looking for what i need and i just cant find it!! i thught i wanted the mesh look b ut then i realized u need a ferrari to get the full effect from those. if u remember a while back i posted lookin for the new z06 look or the cobra look but i cant find those 5 spoke wheels AT ALL!!! people have photoshopped multiple rims for me but i jus cant decide.

i want a simple configuration: chrome, bolt pattern 5x114.3 or 5x115 (VERY PREFERABLY 5x115) and 5 spoke, whether it be split or not, and lightweight (like enkei or something, ive looked at all the popular brand and jus cant find them!!)

for example, here were ones i was looking at:

looks like the vette z06 wheel (cept its a damn dub which i dont want)


heres the niche venice, i dunno if its heavy or not but its on the dub website so i assume...


this is the enkei rpo3..closest to racing rim in SBC (chrome look) i could get while keeping the look i wanted.. but i dont know if i like it.


for some reason, most of the racing rims i look at just wouldnt look good in 18" on our cars just because theres so much tire.. i mean yeah ive seen some REALLY nice rims like the 18" chrome GXPs on that white bonne and stuff, but i dunno, im too picky and cant find what im lookin for so help!

money really isnt an object unless u start paying $600 per rim...

HELP!!!!

moved to the lounge.

your asking for help in shopping for rims Not discussing what you already have.
which is what this section is for.

if you wnat my honest opinion I don't like any of them. That is because I am not a chrome fan but if I was "given" a set I woul take the last one

I like the 1st and 3rd.

for a 00+ I'd put the 1st set on, or 3rd would look good too i guess

Depending on your budget..

Your car is black so why not match the wheel
