Get ATS if you must save the moneys, keep it in the family, no race traiting

Re: (Thrasher)

I checked out the ATS but didnt find anything close to the color scheme im after ....dont really want to go Enkei but the price is right ...I would love to slap some BBS wheels but the price is up there.
But if theyre going to look tacky....or ricey i dont want to do it

I think they are Enkeis....
If you do get them, replace that center cap with something else.
Oh, and for pete's sake, get a wheel that is all one color. Apparently the manufacturers of that wheel thought it was two-piece.

Isnt that the point of gunmetal with a Machined Lip?
I thought the Lip was supposed to stand out.
looks wrong on a one-piece wheel since there really is no "lip". Just think of it as putting a type r badge on a ford contour. It's just trying to be something it isnt, and thats tacky.

Re: (Kellum)

True I do see that they are one Piece! didnt notice that theystill look clean. Any other suggestions on a gunmetal wheel with a machined lip. Looking to spend about $1200 by the time i get wheels and tires.

gunmetal + machined lip = has to be two piece if youre trying to avoid looking tacky or ricey.
Look on the vortex classifieds and get something nice thats a lil' used.

John, shut up. They look fine, they do not look ricey.
Freddy, don't listen to John, he's not the wheel police - he has no idea. BTW, what did you do with the chrome rollers?
