I like it a lot. Those wheels look nice on the R. and to me - stock Pegs are some of the best looking OEM wheels out there....so for me to like something other than pegs....is odd.

I like 'em!

are those 18s or 19s?

they kind of look like the Tethys wheel, but those were only 17s...

I guess I see differently...I much prefer the 18" ti-gray pegs over these; those make the car look too "ghetto" for a Volvo

Wow, like em or not I can't see how those wheels would ever say "ghetto"!?

well, maybe i am biased with seeing tons of puerto-rican ricers with that similar multi-spoke design

I love the drop and considered doing it to my R when it arrives, but I have heard some stories of it screwing up the SUM of the Four-C, and I dont want to have any trouble in the winter being too low to the ground. After all, that is one of the reasons I got AWD.

I agree. I'm 61, certainly I don't have "ghetto" taste but I like those rims
A good looking wheel is a good looking wheel, period

Sorry if I offended anyone...I should have kept my mouth shut and just said I don't care for them as much as I do the pegs

Sweet! I bought those rims from Oscar @ the Tirerack in January! (with Goodyear F1's)
I just haven't put them on yet because of still being in the "winter season".
Although this has been a particularly silly season (80's in freakin' March
)
Nice to see I made a great choice.
I will post pics when I finally swap wheels so everyone can see how they look with Titanium and IPD springs.
(if anyone cares, that is)

I don't care what state you're in, those are hawt!

Million spoke rims look good on just about anything, but are usually a PITA to clean when paired with European brake pads

That's why you give the neighborhood kid a buck or two every other day to clean them!

What is also good that no one has mentioned besides that the fact they look hot is they are pretty lightweight (21lbs I think), and only $279. Saving 7 lbs of rotating/unsprung mass per wheel will make NOTICEABLE improvement in performance and handling.

Wow, those are some of the best looking rims on the R. Nothing better than when form and function come together. http://********************/smile/emthup.gif http://********************/smile/emthup.gif
