After rubbing the right side wheels against a curb yesterday in the pouring rain I am going to be needing some new wheels myself in the future. Still can't believe I did it but for whatever reason some genius here decided to run the curb out to the very edge of the street at every neighborhood entrance. I have never seen any streets like them before and a few inches off the edge and there goes the wheels.

Pegs! nothing else will do. Anthracite look killer on silver Rs. You could even go with the 19" replicas--I saw a guy with a non-R S60 with the replica 19s the other day and they looked amazing...I tried to flag him down, but fail. I was thinking I would go with the 19s, but the roads here seem to get worse by the minute, and even now with the 18s I am uber scared of the good ol' slice 'n bend with my Eagle F1s. Of course, So Cal has good roads in comparison with other parts of the country.

Do what ever you like, but make sure they keep the essence and style of the car and do not look like they came from pep boys--which is why I am sticking with Pegs...even though they could lose a few lbs (like the rest of the country).

Kitkat, here is a nice wheel for you and on a similar car color as yours. The wheel brand is WORK and the model is Varianza T1S. I think this looks much nicer than the Pegs. 18's run about $2100



another one of the T1S



Here is a another wheel. This brand is CCW and the wheel is T140. They are forged (so very strong and light) and run about $2700 for the set of 18's. again better looking than pegs IMHO.



Here is the ADVAN Model T5, they run about $2700



and here is the ADVAN Kreutzer Xi same price as the other ADVAN



another shot of the Xi, notice the concave shape of the spokes.



Of course you can get HRE and pay through the nose for it or on the other end of the spectrum go for the OZs like everybody else but of course it up to you. Just thought I'd show you what's out there and the coin that's required to satisfy the need.

It's all a matter of taste, my friend. Here's Mash's R (now mine
) with Heico Volutions.. I think the bright silver finish really makes the car stand out whereas titanium would have a more subdued look on silver:

I have yet to see the anthracite (darker) pegs on a silver R yet. I'm thinking about going with these also. But if money is no option, you can't beat the HRE's!!
