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.

SWEET!!! Great choice. http://********************/smile/emthup.gif Looks amazing!
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.

just my .02

Or Pegs and Peg reps.

Aren't people tired of those F-ing Pegs?

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

I know. I just don't get the obsession with such a plain OEM wheel.

Pah. I don't do badges.
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!

They look just fine to me on the C30.

I have got the very same on my Focus ST to clear an AP big brake kit.

As you say they are light, easy to clean and well priced against some bling stuff....and their spoke design is big calliper friendly.

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.

The slash is the icing on the cake. Without it, its like a c*ck and no balls.
