Decided to go a different route this year, focusing more on performance and less on bling. Also, the combo of Calgary roads, 19s, and coil overs was killing me. I opted for some 18" Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2 and love them. They're light (20lbs each), a nice flush fit, and look the business. There is a marked improvement in acceleration and steering feel vs the 19s and even the OEM 17s (which were 24lbs each). Tires are Bridgestone RE960s again. Snapped a few photos today.<p><IMG SRC="http://c30world.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=8132&stc=1&d=1243803771" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://c30world.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=8133&stc=1&d=1243803771" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://c30world.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=8134&stc=1&d=1243803771" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://c30world.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=8135&stc=1&d=1243803771" BORDER="0">

SWEET!!! Great choice. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> Looks amazing! <br>Finally, it's nice to see someone going the performance route with their wheel choice. So tired of seeing flashy +30 lb. dubs on SS. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>just my .02

BTW, where did you source your TD wheels from? and how much $$$ for the 18's?

I originally emailed TD themselves and was directed to a US rep out of Colorworks. I believe they were $225US each for 18x8.

Pah. I don't do badges. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> I went to great lengths to remove them from my last car, and was very thankful it was so easy with this one. I'll debadge everything I own, regardless of marque.

A little. 12 spokes is plenty though. I can't imagine washing those OZs! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">

They look just fine to me on the C30.<p>I have got the very same on my Focus ST to clear an AP big brake kit.<p>As you say they are light, easy to clean and well priced against some bling stuff....and their spoke design is big calliper friendly.<p>Regards, Don.

Those wheels look great. I was about to order some 17x9 for my wagon but in the end didn't want to wait two months. It's a very clean look and a great, very reasonably priced wheel.
