Re: Konig Imagine wheels Rice or not?? (2.0 SLOW)

Rice is a state of mind. It can be applied to any mod that someone takes offense to. As long as you make smart choices and make your car look nice, and you personally like what it looks like, then who cares if some guy half a country away thinks of Uncle Ben's when seeing a picture of it.
Personnally, I like Konig Imagines, I say if thats what you want, go for it http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Rice no.. only the most sensitive to rice (read: stupid) would say so, BUT - Konig basically just copies other wheels and sells them for cheap. Thus they are far from a "coveted" wheel brand. Whether or not this matter is up to you

I have had absolutely no problems with my Imagines. *knocks on countertop* IMHO I think they look great, and are strong and fairly lightweight for a 17".

That jetta looks real classy with those on there. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: Konig Imagine wheels Rice or not?? (Sebeck1)

SEE I AM GETTING THE IMAGINES BUT I AM NOT SURE WHETHER 17 OR 18 AND BLACK OPAL OR NOT...I HAVE A BLACK JETTA GLX. MY FRIENDS FATHER IS GOOD FRIENDS WITH THE OWNERS OF KONIG AS THEY ARE BASED ON LONG ISLAND AND HE HAS A HONDA SHOP AND WORKS ON THEIR KONIG RACE CAR. SO I AM GETTING HOOKED UP. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

I would personally get 16" or 17" but never 18". Too damn big. Can't lower your car very much, tires are madd money, and it's very easy to bend a rim.

I say get 18'shttp://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif BTW you can go just as low on an 18 as a 17. I am proof

BTW Black opal is not as dark as it appears in the ad though it is more like a black chrome(ala E46 M3 style)

I'm thinking of black opal 18s on my jetta. The titanium is pretty damn cool. I would love to see a pic of them in black opal actualy on a car. If you like it then its not rice to you and thats all that matters.

Mine are Black Opal by the way. They look awesome in the morning and at dusk. They are a little blingy in the bright sunlight, but still look awesome in my opinion.

Re: Konig Imagine wheels Rice or not?? (Absolut_VW)

I'm buying those wheels in the off-season, 17" for sure, (inspired to get them by spooled2ltr, who used to have them, and k2bum). The wheels look very classy for a Konig wheel, and kind of remind me of the BBS RX or RC wheel, at a fraction of the cost.
What I think I'm going to do is get them flattened a little bit, so they aren't as shiny, and powdercoat then just a bit darker, so they actually resemble a black opal!

So basically, they aren't "rice" at all... http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Super intelligent reply. What are you rolling on, stocks?
If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all.
