Re: BEST CHEAP RIMS!!! (rizal)

hey i just purchased the hp r-5 in gunmetal. I have not installed them yet cause im waiting for my suspension. i like them and they were pretty cheap. i spend about 1200 and they are 18x9 all around and it came with the mounting kit. try gotwheelsandtires.com ask for pete. he is pretty good he's the one that helped me. oh and its got 1.5 inch on the lip.

Ugh...posts like this are why I never visit the MkIV forum. I guess it's back to the Technical forums for me

Cheap "rimz" are soft. You'll pay less now so you can pay more later. Either to get them straightened or to buy new when you bend them.

So its better to have a hard rim so when you hit something the rim cracks instead of bending? I would rather have a rim that bends so it does not lose its bead when I smack something.

You're right...I'm headed out right now to take off those silly forged wheels. I don't know what I was thinking when I bought those.

18x8 235-40's front. 18x9 265-35's rear
I'm sure this set up handles real well

You kids should do a little homework on something called understeer.
I'm guessing you guys also think lowering your car makes it handle better....am I right??

Some folks don't have "unlimited" bank accounts to spend on expensive wheels. inexpensive wheels will get the look you want for not much cash. If someone wants cheaper wheels don't flame them! I have TSW (Too Soft Wheels) and I love them to death. I have hit a few potholes hard that I couldn't avoid, and have not had any problems with bending or cracking. To each their own.
Buy whatever wheels you want, and don't let people flame you about it!
That is all........
